When you work from home, you might not think it’s important to shower, put on makeup, and get dressed every single day. After all, if you’re hiding behind a computer all day, what difference does it make how you look?
Well, let me tell you. After nearly 4 years of managing a business from the comfort of my home office, I’ve learned that it’s extremely important to my self-esteem, my well-being, and to be honest, my overall productivity for me to put myself together and strive to look my best each and every day. That’s why I’m always on the look-out for budget-friendly work at home fashion that gets me excited.
A few months ago, a friend introduced me to ThredUp. She knows that I am a big fan of clothes, especially designer labels, and that I love to shop online. With just one visit to the ThredUp website, I was hooked.
What is ThredUp?
ThredUp is a resale website where people can buy and sell secondhand clothing. If the term “secondhand” conjures up images of garage sales and thrift stores, hold on for a second. ThredUp sells only items that are in excellent condition without stains, holes, pilling, or signs of wear. All styles are on trend and in season, and they feature designer names at prices that are super reduced from typical retail. Ann Taylor, Gap, Coach, Kate Spade, and Banana Republic are just a handful of the brands you’ll find on ThredUp.
My First ThredUp Experience
My first ThredUp order was 13 items, including blouses, skirts, a dress, 2 purses, and a pair of shoes, for a total of just $150! I’ll bet you can’t think of another online site where you can get so many high quality items at such a reasonable price! I mean, let’s be honest: a single designer handbag can cost more than $150!
When I received my items, they came neatly packaged and in like-new condition, fresh and clean, and ready to wear. I was really so pleased with everything I got, and there’s no doubt I’ll be placing many orders in the future.
Did I mention that ThredUp also offers clothes for kids and maternity styles?
Clean Out Your Closet
ThredUp is also a great way to clean out your closet. If you have clothes, shoes, handbags, and other accessories that you no longer use, just send them to ThredUp. They’ll pay you for the items they keep, and they will responsibly dispose of the unaccepted items. Or, they can return them to you for a small fee. Either way, it’s so much easier than pulling everything together for a garage sale or lugging it all to a local consignment shop. Just pack it in a ThredUp Clean Out bag, drop it off at the post office, and you’re all set.
I’ll Give You $10 to Try It
I’d love to invite you to try ThredUp, because I’m so sure you’ll be just as obsessed as I am! When you use my link and click here to sign up for ThreadUp, you’ll get $10 to spend on your first order! And trust me, that $10 can go a very long way with the great prices you’ll find on ThredUp!
