Shopping Service: Thred Up Kids Clothing Swap will save you $$$

Have you seen how expensive kid's clothing is nowadays? Some stores are not living in the same reality most of us are. C'mon, $20 for a t-shirt? That a 3 year old will grow out of, like, tomorrow? I'm pretty lucky that my almost 3 year old is fitting into his older brother's toddler clothes, but if you don't have older siblings your younger ones can inherit clothes from, what do you do? Pay ridiculous prices for clothes that will end up in your donation pile in less than a month? If you're looking for an inexpensive alternative, then I have the BEST shopping tip for you - online clothing swaps!!!

This is not a novel idea by any stretch of the imagination, but the folks at thredUP have made the concept of swapping gently-worn clothes an easy one to understand and put into practice. Interested? Here's how the whole thing works:

1) Browse a list of thousands of boxes full of preloved kids clothes & toys - just $5 (+ $10.95 USPS shipping). Get your box delivered to your doorstep in just a couple of days.

2) Post your own box of preloved clothes/toys your child no longer wears on thredUP. It takes just minutes to list out the great items your kids no longer use.

3) When another member picks your box, send it 100% free of charge. ThredUP provides boxes, postage, and even schedules the pick-up!

It's absolutely free to join thredUP. You pay nothing to list your boxes and nothing to ship them once they've been selected by someone else. The only time you pay anything is when you've select to receive someone else's box. To join, simply click here. I know many of you might be turned off by the idea of having your little ones wear another child's clothes, but, frankly, it's worth a try. For less than what a t-shirt will cost you at Gap Kids, you get a box filled with clothes! I know my son can definitely use some more play clothes :-) I really urge all of you to check thredUP out. You have nothing to lose.

P.S. - ThredUp lets you swap toys too!!!
