Back when my kids were outgrowing their outfits every three months, it pained me to have to restock their wardrobe continually. It wasn’t just the cost, it was the time it took to select each item. That’s why I’m intrigued by the new easier-swap site thredUP kids.
In just a few minutes, you can pick out a box of gently-worn clothing that will fit your child, pay a few bucks to have the box shipped to you, and voila: Right-sized outfits that my kids can outgrow again.
Then, in about the time of a typical nap, you put outgrown clothing into a free USPS box, write a general description of the box’s content on the thredUP kids site and wait for someone to request the box from you which thredUP kids completely arranges. Oh, and you don’t pay a thing to mail something out. Bonus!
Of course, if your babes can only wear organic cotton onesies hand-knit on a Peruvian loom, then you probably know that a swap site isn’t going to work for you. But for the rest of us? thredUP kids makes it pretty easy to reduce, reuse and recycle kids’ clothes, and restock your kids’ wardrobe for a little more than the cost of a single outfit.
