Cleaned out your child’s closet lately? Did you end up with a pile of great-looking items they’ve grown out of? Friend, you’re not alone. I think we all have a pile of kids clothing like that. And we have to decide what to do with it. Consignment shop? Sell the clothes on Ebay? Donate them to Goodwill?
How about trade them in for some clothes that fit?
Thred Up launched a few weeks ago. It’s a service where you can swap your kid’s clothing with other parents across the country. Have you tried it yet? I haven’t, but I’m curious. Seems like it could be a smart way to stretch a clothes budget during this crazy economy.
You can learn more about it after the jump.
Thred Up is still pretty new but apparently it’s catching on — there are already over 8500 families signed up. If you’re curious too, I hope you’ll give it a try and tell us what you think. It’s free to join, you just pay shipping.
Are you a fan of trading and bartering kids clothing? Would you use a service like this?
