Thred-Up, Community Site for Moms Enables Swapping for Kids' Clothes and Toys
A good way to stay on your holiday budget is by swapping, not shopping. Especially for kids today and clothes. ThredUP (www.thredup.com) is an online site where moms can swap baby and kids clothes, toys, books and more. Check this site out. It’s a convenient way to get rid of the stuff you no longer need (once outgrown) and also a fun, inexpensive and green way to get some new-to-you things. The way it works is simple, thredUP sends you boxes to pack up your stuff in (free of charge). Simply list your boxes on the site, and when another mom picks them, send them free of charge (thredUP will even schedule an at-home pick-up). You can browse other moms’ boxes and purchase for just $5 plus shipping. Visit the site to check out the Holiday Toy Swap happening now.
