Spring Cleaning

April 26, 2017



It’s Spring cleaning time! Remember when I wore this blazer a few months ago in this post? Well, I’m getting one last use out of it and then it’s time to add it to my Spring purge pile. It’s no secret that I have quite a bit of clothes which can become a nightmare when it comes to storage. With trends and designs changing so rapidly, it creates a problem where I have many garments that I no longer wear. I think this is something that we can all relate to. We grow out of clothing or it becomes out of style so it just takes up space in our closets where we could be filling it with newer items. Luckily, there is a solution!



You may have already heard of thredUP but in case you haven’t, thredUP is a one stop shop to buying and selling quality secondhand clothing. You can shop your favorite brands – including plus size at major discounts – from thredUP, and they get their inventory from sellers just like me and you. You can also Clean Out your wardrobe by filling up their Clean Out bags in exchange for cash or credits to shop. This is probably my favorite feature of the brand because of the convenience it offers for Spring cleaning and purging your closet. Here’s how it works:

  1. Simply order a Clean Out bag from thredUP
  2. Fill it with items that you no longer wear. (Keep in mind, you want to provide clothing that is still in good condition and that you would give to a friend. If you want the items that they don’t accept back, opt for Return Assurance! http://bit.ly/2nKT7Dl Or have all your unaccepted items upcycled responsibly. Either way, it’s a win-win for getting those unworn items out just in time to make room for a refreshed Spring wardrobe)
  3. Schedule a pickup from USPS and leave the bag at your doorstep



That’s it! How easy is that? You can create space in your closets immediately with little to no effort. And for those that enjoy donating, you can opt to have your payout go to charity so you are covered on all bases (and if you chose to donate, you don’t have to pay the bag fee to get a Clean Out bag!).

I love how they coined the phrase #throwmo. FOMO or the fear of missing out has become a popular term so #throwmo is a play on that and it means the fear of throwing things out. We all hold on to things longer than we should. Take this quiz to know when it’s time to let go. Then once you are confronted with what you already know, order your Clean Out bag today!
