PhotobucketWhy Be Frugal?

I consider frugality an art form and a religious conviction. I learned about paying cash for purchases, recycling and reusing just about everything and being generous to friends and those in need from my parents.

My faith instructs me all things are gifted by God and so I am compelled to be a good steward of my gifts. [The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to man. Psalm 115:16]

ThredUp - exchange kids clothes and save!

Lori at More With Less Today posted this a couple of days ago:

ThredUP is a site where parents exchange gently worn kids clothing. The recipient pay the shipping and handling. The USPS will mail you the empty box that you need to use to send your clothing.

You are not usually making a direct swap with someone else. You will simply choose the “box” of clothing that you wish to receive, then pay shipping and handling. Next you pack your own box of clothing to swap, and when someone choose’s your box, you print out a label and mail it. Remember, only the recipient pays shipping and handling.

This is a neat concept. I found other clothing swap sites to explore, but ThredUP is just for kid’s clothing. The basic membership is free. There is a “PRO” Membership which has some extra bells and whistles. You can sign up through this introductory link and try the PRO membership free for two months if you like, or just opt for the free membership from the start.

Here is the invitation to check out ThredUp:
