ThredUp Clean Out Kit

Get a ton of stuff this holiday season and need to get organized in your closet.  Take a moment to check out ThredUp.  I have shared my love of them before and wanted to let you all know how easy the other side of the process is… which is “selling” your previously loved items.

It is so easy to head to ThredUp and order a kit, they also explain how to clean out.  You have a couple different options [like if you want to donate what they don’t accept or if you want it sent back].  Once your kit arrives it comes with great information on how much items are valued at and what brands they look for. They also let you know their standards of accepting items. Fill the bag and sit it out for the post office to pick up or head to an approved drop location!

Once your order is processed everything is online and you can see what was automatically purchased from you and what they are listing!

This was such a great way for me to get rid of a good amount of items without having to leave my house… which is key if you are a busy mom or person like me!  I can’t wait to do another clean out soon!

Some other cool things to think about is how shopping and selling secondhand helps contribute to sustainability!

Have you tried ThredUp before? If you haven’t use code GABBINGGINGER for 50% off until March!
XOXO. Gabbing Ginger

Thread Up Review

I am so excited to bring you all this review.  I have been eyeing thredUP for awhile now and I was so excited to a get a chance to partner with them to try out their stuff! You all know how much I love bargains and fashion.

ThredUp is a modern day consignment store.  You can send in clothes to them to consign [stay tuned for a blog review on this] and you can shop for gently loved items online.  This is seriously such a life saver as a busy mom!

The site is so easy to navigate and search for items you want and need.  I found several wonderful items to add to my fall/winter wardrobe and I am also eyeing a few things for an upcoming Christmas party

I loved how easy everything working into my wardrobe.

  1.  Photo 1: The new item is the Sweat Rain plaid teal blouse.  It is so versatile for the odd winter months we have here in Texas.  I can layer it up or down!
  2. Photo 2: The new items are the black shoes and the black blouse.  The shoes are BCBG and have amazing jewel/pearl accents and the black Equipment blouse is black on black leopard print so you know I had to get it!
  3. Photo 3: Is a black and white stripe Banana Republic shirt.  I had to toss my old one [because it is such a staple piece it was worn out] and I found this one and snagged it!
  4. Photo 4: The new item is the black and white tunic sweater.  It is so easy to throw on with leggings for major comfort and a put together look… totally mom win.  It is Forever 21.

Just for you all use code: GABBINGGINGER. It gives 50% off entire orders to the first 50 people on everything, and is valid till the end of this year. Feel free to spread the word!

I have put together some fun quick links to take you to some of my favorite searches within thredUP.

My First Mother’s Day + Gift Ideas

I know, I know. I was a mother when I was pregnant but this year is so special having Tripp in my arms to snuggle and hug(he was born TWO days after Mother’s Day last year). These last few years Mother’s Day has honestly been very sad. It is hard watching so many people celebrate with their mom and you don’t get to do that.

I love that this year has brought new meaning to this holiday. I am so thankful that God chose Tripp to be my little one. He has shown me unconditional love that I have never known. He has taught me to be more carefree and less uptight. He has taught me patience and understanding and that with one little grin that he can get out of a lot of trouble.

I can’t wait to spend this Mother’s Day with my little family. Really that is the best gift of all BUT if you were to ask me some fun gift ideas for moms here is what I would suggest!

Pampering is ALWAYS a good idea for mom so a massage or mani/pedi gift card are safe bets! Click to photos below for direct links!

For the clean freak like me
Roomba

For the techie:
Apple Watch

For the Fashionista
Tory Burch Clutch

For the jewelry lover
Kendra Scott Necklace

For the mom’s who need ALL the coffee
Keurig Rivo Cappuccino and Latte System
