WFMW: thredUP


Welcome to the weekly WFMW post where we help each other out by sharing useful life tips!

Last weekend I bought my son a new pair of tennis shoes. Again. He’s gone from a size 8 this year to a men’s size 11.

Hello, growth spurt.

I don’t know about you, but I find it’s expensive to clothe children. But I think I might have found an easy solution. I just ordered my youngest two gently used Spring dresses from thredUP because she keeps growing too.


Have you heard of thredUP? Not only can you buy discounted gently used and new clothes, you can also sell your families clothes for cash.

Here’s how it works:

1. Order a thredUP Clean Out Bag, and fill it with like-new quality women’s, juniors, and/or kids clothing. The Clean Out Calculator can help you estimate your payout amount in advance.
2. Give the Clean Out Bag to your USPS carrier or drop it off at your local FedEx Kinkos. Your bag comes with a pre-paid, pre-addressed shipping label to ship back to us for FREE.
3. Our fashion resale professionals review your clothing and we pay up to 40% of the resale value. You can earn thredUP shopping credit, or simply cash out with PayPal.
4. Items that we don’t accept go to charitable partners or textile recycling companies. They can be mailed back to you as part of our Return Assurance program for a $12.99 shipping fee.


I just asked for my first Clean Out Bag too. So, closets, you’ve been warned. And/Or you can shop for gently used and new clothes at discounted prices for your entire family.


It’s a win-win-win.

    Thanks so much for the heads up on Thred Up. I’d heard of it but never really knew what it was. Sometimes I wish that reselling clothes were as easy here in Latin America as it is in the states. Maybe I’ll have to pack one extra suitcase full of goods just to take back stateside this summer when we visit my family so I can sell rather than the typical donate. Both are good, but sometimes it’s nice to get a little pocket change from the clothes. Thank you, Kristen. P.S. Still loving your new brighter and more colorful site design. It looks great!

    Thanks for hosting. I keep hearing about ThredUp, but have to admit I didn’t really understand it – thanks for explaining! Sounds like something I need to be checking out.
