Clothes are expensive and can drain your bank account quickly. But I’m not telling you something that you don’t already know. Most of us want to wear good quality, name brand clothing, but our budgets have another idea. I have just the answer to help you save money and build the wardrobe of your dreams.

You can tell by the name of this blog that I like to save money in every area of life possible. Purchasing quality clothes at a consignment store is a fantastic way to stretch your clothing budget. When you are not paying top dollar for clothing, you can build an amazing wardrobe. Opening a closet that makes you smile.

ThredUp is an online consignment and thrift store that offers gently used to brand new clothes (with tags) at reasonable prices. Up to an amazing 90% savings.

My Experience

I had a $30 budget to shop with. When I first signed on I was a little overwhelmed (in a good way) at the amount of items to “shop” for. It doesn’t take long to navigate the site and figure out where you want to go. Much like walking into a department store, you hone in on the department of your choice in and head that direction.

Their selection is so vast that I highly recommend you use the search feature. If you were to attempt viewing EVERY piece of inventory they have you might grow old and become a permanent fixture right where you are!

I narrowed my search to dress pants and casual shorts. I could also stand to add a few new shirts to my wardrobe so I searched for them as well. With so many choices it was easy to start finding styles I liked.

They give you the option to *FAVORITE* items. I noticed that after doing this a few times when I returned to the home screen ThredUp had *suggestions* for me based on the items I was clicking on (to view the description) and what I was clicking as a favorite. Most of the suggestions were pretty spot on. It’s almost like someone shopping for you. I liked that feature.

After narrowing it down, I purchased a pair of casual capris, casual dress pants, a beautiful pink v-neck top {new with tags}  and a long sleeve button down top {also new with tags}. I scored 2 outfits (4 pieces). I used a 40% off coupon at checkout and my total for everything (this included shipping) was $29.37. A thrifty score for sure!

A Little About ThredUp

ThredUp has a vast inventory of:

  • Women’s Clothing (even includes Maternity)
  • Kid’s Clothing
  • Shoes
  • and Accessories:
    • handbags
    • jewelry
    • belts
    • hats
    • gloves
    • scarves
    • sunglasses
    • tights
    • watches
    • and make-up bags.

Their Search feature is nothing short of amazing! I highly recommend it. You can search by:

  • Clothing Style (dresses, tops, jeans, etc)
  • Size
  • Brand
  • Color
  • Price

The Descriptions for each article of clothing is spot on. The clothes I received were exactly as described. I appreciated that they include if the garment requires dry cleaning.

Another outstanding feature is the Shopping Cart feature. If you come across a piece of clothing you like you can add it to your cart. I know you just read that and thought “that doesn’t really seem outstanding!” I noticed while I was shopping the site that if I liked something I needed to add it to my cart because some of the items I went back to look at later that day were already spoken for by another buyer. Ya snooze, ya lose!

You can add it to your cart and it will remain in there for a limited time. Only a few hours if I remember correctly. I thought this was an amazing feature because it gives you the ability to take a little time to decide and keep the article of clothing from vanishing forever.

Item doesn’t fit? Not the style for you? Their Return Policy states that you can return the unwanted items for free if you choose to accept store credit. They offer additional ways to return the items under their Return Policy on their site.
