This back to school season, why not save big with thredUP? This company is trendy online consignment store that gives you the option to shop straight from home or on your phone through an app. There is also the option to send in clothes in a very large bag and get a pay out.
thredUp is very easy to navigate when searching for a particular style, brand, or color of clothes. There’s a search bar that is still in beta till they get all the kinks out but I found it pretty helpful too. Some of the brands you are likely to come across are the Tea Collection, Carters, Old Navy, Gymboree, Crazy 8′s, The Children’s Place, Osh Kosh, and more! Read the rest of this entry »

I’d like to introduce you to a new to me swap site called Snazzy Swap. The motto of this site reads “High Quality, Cute Clothing and Great Toys Don’t Have to Cost a Fortune”. And as a frugal mom trying to save a buck wherever possible, I couldn’t agree more especially during this time of the year when kids really need new clothes for back-to-school and the upcoming Autumn and Winter seasons!
Basically how Snazzy Swap works is you can easily navigate the site to pick a box either of clothing, book and dvds, or toys for your own family or as a gift for friend or family member. The prices on the boxes are clothing boxes $15.95 each as well as the books/dvd boxes ( medium flat rate), and it’s $19.95 for toys boxes (Large Flat Rate). So basically you are only spending $5.00 each box plus the cost of shipping and it’s free to join with no memberships fees whatsoever!
One thing I really like is that you can sign up for box notifications to arrive directly to your e-mail for whatever size clothes or toy or book/dvd box age range is posted. How awesome is that? It saves you the time and let’s you know right away if something you may want can be purchased.So you can pick a box for free to start and then you are required to post your own box before being able to pick another, hence it is a swap site. I posted a box of 12-18 months clothes that were in great used condition that my son has recently grown out of. It’s super simple to list a box, add photos, and write out a decent description that other mommies can see to know if your box is for them!
I’ve been doing my back to school and Fall season shopping now and found two awesome boxes on Snazzy Swap for both my four year old daughter and my 1 1/2 year old son. And have come to the conclusion that it’s not likely that I could have spent the same amount at one of my local thrift or consignment store and received that same number of quality items that I did through this swapping site.
The size 2t box I picked out for my son was super packed, I honestly can’t believe that 14 items were included. One smart momma sure knew how to pack a box. I found all items in excellent used condition. And what a surprise to find that one of the shirts in the box even was new with tag still attached from the GAP!
In the 4t box I picked for my daughter was 3 dresses, 2 sweaters, gap fleece pullover, pink cardigan/plaid wool skirt combo! Everything was beautiful and in excellent condition. I know it sounds like there was a lot less in this box but you have to remember it’s 4t and the clothing is all suitable for the Fall and Winter season so it’s bulkier. But 8 items for the low price I paid still really pleases me. As I mentioned before there’s no way I could have gotten this many quality items elsewhere for the same price!
Snazzy Swap is a site I will continue swapping on and highly recommending to all my friends and readers. I encourage you to check it out for yourself. This site is also giving back by donating $0.50 from each swap to help kids with special needs! And if you have any questions, the customer support is great and will get back to you rather quickly.
