Online Kids' Consignment Store:ThredUp

I love bargains.  Occasionally I visit thrift stores, because you never know what useful items you might find that someone else has discarded.  They're often known for being a great place to find Halloween costumes (they are), but they can also be a surprising resource for kids' and adults' clothing items, (with a good washing before use!)  Some of my favorite pairs of jeans have come from thrift stores, with good quality brands like Gap, Banana Republic, DKNY, and Ann Taylor.  And it's a great way to be a good steward of the environment.

I also like shopping online.  No lines, no going out, and easy to sift through products to find exactly what you're looking for at the best price.  

So here's a happy marriage of the 2: Online consignment shopping.  I just learned about a company called ThredUp, where you can sell your kids' clothes in good condition, and buy gently used clothing in good shape at steep discounts from the new, retail price.  They often run special deals to make your shopping even sweeter.  Right now, save 25% on your first order.  If you have clothes to sell, order a free bag at their site and they'll send you a bag to ship your clothes in, at no cost.  Check out their website for more details.

That sounds like my kind of bargain!  Let me know what good deals you find!
