An Honest Review of ThredUp.com

Recently I’ve been on a cleaning spree – going through all of my stuff organizing and purging! My closet has taken the biggest hit, as it should have. I’ve been about 6 different sizes in the last two years and the sheer amount of clothing I have had reached a ridiculous level. But what to do with all of the clothes??

Sure, some I will take to Goodwill. But some of them are really nice clothes from GAP, Limited, LOFT, Banana Republic, etc. I knew I could consign and get some money for them, but I don’t have time to tag things or fool with it. Insert: ThredUp.com.

A friend of mine had posted how easy her experience was and I thought I’d give it a try! First, I bought a few things for Baby J in the kids shop and had a great experience – it was easy to find cute things for him and there’s free shipping.

Next, I decided that I would send in my clothing. The way it works is you order one of their polka dot clean out bags to send in your clothing. You can fit about a load of laundry worth of clothing, shoes or accessories into the bag. The great thing for me was they accept maternity and plus size clothing, so clothes that don’t fit anymore or that I knew I wouldn’t ever wear again, I sent in.

You can either drop off the bag at FedEx (which is the fast option) or leave it for the post man to get (which is the easier option). It was SO easy for me to load up my extra clothes into the bag and drop it at FedEx. It took them a few days to process the bag – they send you emails all along the way – and then voila! They let you know how much you earned:

Remembering God’s Faithfulness | You Are Not Your Circumstances

reading-jesus-calling-with-babyj

This morning, my snuggle bug and I read #JesusCalling out loud and it was such a sweet time… I’m so grateful that The Lord is merciful and provides the exact message I need right when I need it:

“Rest with Me a while. You have journeyed up a steep, rugged path in recent days. The way ahead is shrouded in uncertainty. Look neither behind you nor before you. Instead, focus your attention on Me, your constant Companion. Trust that I will equip you fully for whatever awaits you on your journey.

I designed time to be a protection for you. You couldn’t bear to see all your life at once. Though I am unlimited by time, it is in the present moment that I meet you. Refresh yourself in My company, breathing deep draughts of My Presence. The highest level of trust is to enjoy Me moment by moment. I am with you, watching over you wherever you go.”

Happily Keeping Some Things Private

So this is going to be one ironic blog post… I’m going to share how I’m learning to keep more things private, aka NOT dish it all up on social media and the blog.

I recently mentioned that I’m dating again. Or rather, I should just say that I’m dating. I realized how little I really did it before I got married and now that I’m back in the saddle, dating has changed quite a bit. I have NO idea what I’m doing, but I sure am having fun.

I have a boyfriend. A long-term commitment, giddy with excitement kind of boyfriend. (cue the angels in heaven!!!)  (more…)

Dating: Optimistic About the Future

man1

I’ve started this blog post a dozen different times. I’ve alluded here that I’m dating, and it feels weird to talk about here – so personal – but when have I ever shied away from that?!

I started dating again several months ago and the first couple of dates were rough for me. I have no idea what the guys thought, but I felt TOTALLY off my game. Totally weird and out of place. Heck, I hadn’t been on a first date in more than 9 years and a LOT has changed in almost a decade. (more…)
