I just dropped off 3 bags of items at Good Will yesterday – I absolutely LOVE that feeling. I would like to tell you that it’s because I’m helping other people but that’s only part of the reason. Getting rid of items we don’t use and *trying* to declutter gives me a super feeling(: I always thank the workers at Good Will when I hand them my bags and I really mean it – I am thankful that I have somewhere to take the stuff I no longer want or need!
Anyway, if you don’t have a Good Will, Salvation Army or other place to drop off your unwanted items, here’s an easy way to get rid of your gently used children’s clothing & items without leaving your house AND you can actually make a little $$ while doing it! Sign-Up for Thred-UP (they are becoming very popular with over 38,000 fans on Facebook! You have different choices in how you send/receive clothes. You can pack your own boxes, and send them directly to the “buyer” or my FAVORITE way would be to get a FREE Bag, fill it with Children’s items and leave it for your mail-person to pick-up! You will earn more by packing your own boxes, but I like the ease of just putting things in a bag and forgetting about them! The Thred-up people will sort and box your items and you will earn $$ which can be used to buy other boxes or can be cashed out via paypal!
**Update: Great News! I just asked on their Facebook what the largest size of clothing they accept, and a Thred-up user let me know that their is no limit and even Women Swap clothes and other items!! My children are 11 and older so I was thinking I wouldn’t be able to send items…..but it looks like I can- YAY!
