Anyone that knows me knows I love a bargain. One of my many mantras in life is “Never Pay Retail” and I don’t. I get way too excited when I find a great deal because I prefer high end labels but refuse to pay high end prices. This attitude brings me to many of the consignment shops in my area, where I love to browse on a regular basis.
With three little ones, I don’t always have the time to get out and go shopping. Most of my “me” time is spent at the supermarket, gym, writing and running a household, which you know all about. I recently discovered an amazing site called thredUP, and I am so excited about it for many reasons and wanted to share it with all of you.
What is thredUP you ask?
Browse thousands of like-new clothing items, which we’ve hand-selected and certified for quality. You’ll find all your favorite brands discounted up to 90% off, year-round.
Some examples include Free People, Vince, J. Crew, Guess, Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Theory, Alice & Olivia, Marc by Marc Jacobs and tons more. Are you excited yet?
And, when you’re done with clothing, simply fill up a thredUP bag and put it on your doorstep. thredUP covers the shipping, and pays you for every item we can sell to other families. How awesome is that??? I have had a ton of items waiting to be dropped off at the consignment shop but never seem to get there and cross it off my ever growing to-do list.
There is another reason why thredUp is so unique and this is where you all come in. They have partnered with AdoptAClassroom.org to recognize and thank teachers for their hard work and the positive impact they make each day on our children’s lives.
As we all know, teachers are very dedicated to our children. According to AdoptAClassroom.org, teachers spend an average of $500 of their own money each year to equip their classrooms. In fact, 70% of teachers have even purchased apparel items like jackets, socks and shoes for their students.
Here’s where you can make a difference and give back to a teacher who has given so much to your child and others. Go ahead and nominate a teacher!
- Three teachers will win $2500 for classroom supplies and $500 to thredUP.
- Nomination period starts July 15th and ends August 23rd.
- 50 runner-up winners will receive $100 to thredUP.
- Winners will be announced Tuesday, September 8.
I am going to nominate three teachers who have made a significant impact on my child’s lives. Ms. Nathalie, Ms. Ramona and Ms. Lisa, thank you for all that you have done and all that you do, every day! Good luck!
Summer is going by way too quickly and its going to be time to do our back to school shopping soon. I don’t know about you but I dread back to school shopping. It’s crowded, sizes are limited and the kids are running around the store. Not a fun time for anyone. This year, I am definitely going to check out thredUp first. It’s easier, less expensive, less stressful and I can get multiple brands in one place. Mastering motherhood is all about making it easier for yourself and this is a perfect tool to help accomplish that.
- thredUP has all of my favorite kids brands, including GapKids, Janie and Jack, Lilly Pulitzer, Mini Boden, Zara Kids, Stride Rite and more!
thredUP’s prices are always up to 90% off retail, so you don’t have to wait for the back-to-school sales to start to save a ton of money.
There are so many reasons to visit thredUP. I love this site because of the great deals, amazing clothing, ease of shopping AND the fact that they are giving back. Head on over, check it out and don’t forget to nominate one or twenty teachers that have made a difference in your child’s life.
TOGETHER WE CAN MASTER MOTHERHOOD™, shopping and giving back!
