For me, one of the best feelings is reducing clutter in my life. I hang on to very little “extras,” although I must admit that after packing and unpacking all of those moving boxes, I’m beginning to question that statement. But when it comes to my closet, I absolutely cannot stand to look at pieces I don’t use on a regular basis. That’s why companies like thredUP are so wonderful because on their website, you can sell your like-new, quality women’s, juniors and kids clothing without ever leaving home. (Remember when I talked about their handbag launch?)
thredUP is basically like a consignment store, but it’s better because the process couldn’t be easier and can be done completely online while you’re on the couch watching Real Housewives. Here’s the simple process: You just order a complimentary “Clean Out Bag“, fill it with your clothes, then send it back to thredUP with their prepaid shipping label. Once your clothing sells online, you will be paid up to 80% of the resale value. You can be paid cash through Paypal or receive a thredUP credit to shop like-new clothing from over 25,000 brands on their website—at prices up to 90% off retail. Sell clothes you don’t wear, then buy new ones without leaving home…. not too shabby.
The best part of all is that starting today through 12/31, you can send your handbags in to thredUP to receive 100% of the amount the bag sells for. There’s no catch; they’re giving you every penny that someone pays for your bag, taking 0% commission.
As always, thredUP will cover the cost for you to send your handbags to them in one of their “Clean Out Bags.” They do all of the work to photograph, list, and sell your bag.
The icing on the cake is that thredUP is giving away six designer handbags from brands including Fendi, Jimmy Choo and Stella McCartney. Enter at thredUP.com/bagUP by sharing the contest on Facebook. Entries will close on Friday night and the winner will be announced on Monday (One handbag given away per week until 12/22!). Selection is random, but you can enter daily to increase your odds of winning.
I just think it’s the coolest thing that thredUP is helping women earn money over the holidays, a time so focused on spending. It’s their way of giving back to customers during the season of giving. Pretty neat!
