*I first used thredUp a month or two ago for my daughter. Basically, it is like an online consignment shop - you can buy and sell. I was really pleased with the items I got for my daughter. They had announced that a Women's shop was opening soon and yesterday was the day! I had $30 in referral credits, so I was able to get all three items above for the cost of shipping. There are some things about the site that I don't love - it takes a long time to navigate through the items and they don't list material, washing instructions, inseams, etc. With the promotions, I have gotten some great deals, though and am hopeful these items will work for me. If you want to sign up, here is my referral link. You get $10 off your first order (and it looks like there is a free shipping code for a first order - I think you can combine the two.) and I will earn $10 toward a future order.
I'm excited I got several items from my list this month. I'm thinking about trying to mainly thrift in May - Goodwill and garage sales. I have a $20 gift certificate to our Goodwill from participating in March madness. The exception would be shoes. I am looking for boat shoes. I thought about these metallic ones (they're out of my size now), but don't know if I should hold out for Sperry's. What do you think?
