There are few things in life I enjoy more than getting a good deal. It’s sick, really, how much pleasure I take in paying as little as possible for things. Clearance racks and promo codes are my love language.
Also, I am not a snob when it comes to clothes. Never have been, probably never will be. I have a spending threshold for most items, and while I do like to spend more money on fewer high-quality pieces, I still consider myself to be a pretty thrifty shopper. I hardly ever pay full price for anything. If it’s not on sale, it’s not in the cart.
So obviously, I love the concept behind thredUP—an online consignment shop featuring thousands of like-new clothing items, which have already been hand-selected and certified for quality. I was shocked when I was received my first order, the clothes looked brand new!
Not too shabby, right?! Three tops and a maxi dress for $55? (Also, I am completely obsessed with that maxi dress and plan to wear it all summer long.)
If you’re not careful, you can easily spend two hours browsing on this site. It’s addicting. I like to filter by category and size, and then search 3-4 brands at a time, sorting from most expensive to least expensive to see the good stuff first. The best part is, the “most” expensive items aren’t that expensive at all. I also like how thredUP will save all of your favorite brands, which makes it even easier to browse quickly.
ThredUP is not only a great place to buy clothes, it’s also a great place to sell clothes. I’ve had great success in the past selling clothes on Poshmark and Instagram, but I still had a small bag of items that never sold. I ordered a clean out bag for my leftover clothes and earned $30, which I can now use as shopping credit or cash out via paypal. To be honest, I probably could have made a lot more money selling those items on Poshmark or Instagram, but both of those routes involve a lot of time and energy. The thredUP cleanout bag is a great option if you want to get rid of your nicer clothes with minimal work. Plus, $30 can go a long way if you turn around and use it as credit on the same site.
