A Curated Box of Thrift Store Finds – thredUP Goody Box

“Thrift shopping takes too much time.”
“I never find anything!”

These are just a few of the complaints I still hear about thrift shopping. I mean, I get it. Thrifting *can* feel like hours of digging to never find anything. Or sometimes it means dealing with a push crowd. I guess the same can be said for shopping at any store, but there just seems to still be an overall frustration some people associate with heading into a thrift store.

Well, I was super excited to hear the online thrift shop, thredUP, has a new service for people who don’t have the time or patience for secondhand shopping. I first blogged about thredUP back in 2009 when they first launched as an online clothing swap and to say they’ve come a long way is an understatement.

I wrote the book on how to thrift shop {literally!}, so any time something new comes around that’s meant to make secondhand shopping easier and more accessible, I’m down to share it.

Well, this isn’t exactly a strategy per se, but a website. I finally tried swap.com, an online consignment and thrift shop and it’s pretty awesome!

Thrift Shopping: How It Can Help AND Hinder Your Personal Style

I hate to say it, but sometimes thrift shopping isn’t a good thing. I don’t want to say it’s bad, but let’s face it, some thrift shoppers just buy any and everything. Now that’s bad! We know that just because something is “cheap” doesn’t mean it’s necessarily worth buying and those little purchases can rack up after a while.
