Spring Cleaning with thredUP



The Spring season is finally upon us, but coming from a Minnesotan, you truly just never know.

I figured with signs of winter disappearing, and summer clothes coming out to play, that it was time to do some spring cleaning! If there is one place that really triggers my anxiety, it’s my closet. No matter how many times I clean that space out, there are still pieces to say “so long” to.

The tough part about cleaning out my closet so often and now preparing for the spring season is that I have no idea what to do with the clothes I no longer want. I’ve tried my luck on apps like Poshmark and LetGo, but that only seems to build up my pile of unwanted clothes; never bidding them farewell. If you’re like me and find yourself tossing out clothing items with tags still attached, I’ve found the perfect solution!


This past month I was introduced to a closet and spring cleaning lifesaver…thredUP clean out kits!

Clean out Kits:

  • Supply you with every material you need to make the process simple.
  • Is a HUGE bag to place all your gently worn or unworn clothing, shoes or accessories into.
  • Is already postage paid.
  • (If accepted) turns clothing into credits for you to shop on thredUP or cash out on PayPal.

So what’s the best part? Well, besides the fact thredUP makes it easy and fun to send your unwanted clothing pieces straight into someone else’s closet, you can get paid to do it! Once your items sell, you can use your payout to shop on thredUP, give to their cause partners, or cash out with PayPal.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Clean out kits are FREE!
  • thredUP accepts 35,000 brands.
  • thredUP responsibly recycles any items you send that they will not accept.
  • They’ll pay you up to 90% of the listing price on designer items.
