Recycling Children's Clothing for Cash

It amazes me that it was just four years ago that my daughter was born and now we have so many kids' clothes. Now with a second baby, there are clothes of every shape and size in their dresser, but as they grow I am finding that I have little room to hold onto their old items. I've donated and passed them on, but again with two and no car it can be hard to get it all out of our house.

Enter thredUP, a new service that delivers a large shipping bag that you can stuff with your kids' outgrown clothes. What is even better is that you can drop it on your doorstep and then earn up to $5/item that you send in via PayPal. Also, a donation will be made to Coats for Kids for every bag you recycle.

Using thredUp Concierge made it so easy to purge as I went through my daughter's old clothes and loaded up the bag at my convenience. The website also points out that this is the most convenient option to passing along old clothes, more so than Craigslist, eBay, and even passing them along to family or friends. I loved how simple the system is as well as their mission to donate and provide families with some money. No more excessive junk for 2012 thanks to thredUp Concierge.
