Remember when we told you about thredUP, a convenient online way to swap gently-used clothes? Well, now you can swap kids' clothing, too!
Once you sign up (a basic membership is free, but you can go "pro" for $29.99 a year), you can browse through hundreds of clothes boxes, much in the same way you would browse a listing on eBay, iTunes or Amazon.com. Sort by gender, size, brand, season and type of item. You can choose to browse only those boxes that have been uploaded by friends in your Inner Circle (family members, neighbors, those in your community), or boxes in their national network of parents. As a Pro Member, you can view detailed box contents and the credibility of the sender on things like quality, style and reliability.
Once you find a box you like, all you do is pay for shipping ($13). Then you prepare your own box of clothes, upload it, and once it's picked, thredUP sends it for free (they even pick it up for you).
Because kids grow so fast, there is a constant rotation of available clothes.
