Closet Clean-Out Solution

I'm all about cleaning out my closet every few months. There's so much stuff in there that I never wear, but find myself holding onto for one reason or another. In comes ThredUp, the solution to my "holy crap my closet keeps exploding" problem.

This post has been in the works for quite some time now. It only took three months for me to finally sit down and write about ThredUp. And you'll thank me for this one, I promise. 

If you've been here a while, you know that I have a shopping problem. Which also means I have a ridiculous amount of clothes. And not enough closet space. And I don't wear them all. 

So I have been on a mission to to a complete closet clear-out. And ThredUp has been there to save my life. A lot of these clothes either haven't been worn, are in really great shape, or still have some value to them. 

So donating them seems like I'm throwing money away. But selling them myself has proved difficult. And Plato's Closet never gives you the money you deserve for your stuff.

In comes ThredUp. The simplest way to get money back for your clothes.
Or to shop their site and fill your closet back up again!

Step 1. Head to ThredUp website.
Step 2. Order a bag. (For free!)
Step 3. Get your bag in the mail.
Step 4. Fill the bag with clothes.
(That's the best picture I could get of my stuffs.)

Step 5. Drop the bag off a FedEx, UPS, or the post office.

Step 6. ThredUp processes your bag, and gives you money.

Badabing, badaboom. 

All of your clothing dilemmas solved. 

They have been an absolute life saver for me while I've been deep-cleaning my closets. And through this whole process, I've learned a few lessons. Next week I'll have a post with some tips and tricks on the best way to handle the process!

If you want to sign up, use this link and we both benefit! A closet clean-out never hurt ya, I promise!

Have you ever used ThredUp? How was your experience?

  1. I love browsing ThredUp (they have really improved their website ever since I found it back in 2013)! I've only sent one bag of clothes and felt like I got pretty jipped on the payout so I haven't sent anything else. Have you gotten pretty good deals on your clothes?

    1. I normally feel like there were at least one or two items that I should be getting more money for, but I also realize that I wasn't actually wearing them while they took up space in my closet, so $5 is better than nothing. For the most part, though, I really feel like it's the quickest, easiest way to get decent money back for clothes.
