Use ThredUP to Get Rid of Clothes Your Kids Have Outgrown

April 4, 2011 | By | Comments (0)

It will soon be time to switch out your closet for a more warm-weather friendly wardrobe. And if you ave kids, that means you’ll soon be faced with a pile of clothing that they’ve outgrown. Instead of hauling them off to the thrift store (or worse yet throwing them out), try posting the items that are still wearable on ThredUP.


ThredUP works much like a consignment store with out the hassle of having to haul your clothes to one. Instead, you can purchase a box of gently-worn clothes in your child’s current size. To shop the site, simply browse the clothes that other parents have listed. They will include information like the sizes, colors, brands, and condition of the clothing included so You have an idea of what you’ll receive. Once you find one you like, simply pay $5 plus shipping (for a total of $16), and you get a brand new range of outfits.


As a seller, you simply fill out the information about the clothing you are ready to give up (including all that helpful info like colors, sizes, brands, and condition) then list it on the site. Once someone purchases your bundle, ThredUP will send you a box, and you can print out a pre-paid shipping label. All you’ll have to do is tape up the box and schedule a USPS pick up.
