But look was I just spotted today! Thred Up has a Goody Box which is more or less a sub box, curated thrifted finds with a just a $20 deposit. Keep what you like, send the rest back!
If you haven't heard of Thred Up, I'm so glad you're here. It's the biggest thrift & consignment store online. I'd been stalking them for awhile now, a good friend recommended it. When I spotted 3 pairs of designer jeans (my favorite brand) in new condition in my size, PLUS a coupon code, I jumped in and am so happy I did. This was my favorite pair. After the coupon I paid just $11.40 for them!
It's really easy to use, just enter your sizes, click on categories that interest you and browse. You can even sort to see only items new with tags still on.
Right now I'm stalking jackets, which brings me back round to the Goody Box. There are so many options, I can't make up my mind. I love the idea of a box of surprises at amazing prices.
Check out the fun categories to pick from!
Cold Weather Essentials
Jeans, sweaters and long sleeve tops for cooler temperatures
Pants, skirts and blouses for the office
Date night dresses, blouses, tops and jeans for a night on the town
Fancy Finds (Designer Labels)
Jeans, long sleeve tops, sweaters and jackets from your favorite name brands
Each box contains 12-15 custom items based on your preferences, notes and sizes. They ship free AND returns are free! A $20 deposit is collected, which counts toward anything you keep.
I love everything about this idea. I just finished checking out. I picked the Fancy Finds. Blog post to come!
Other great things about Thred Up:
Closet Clean Out
Request a clean out kit and send your gently used or unworn pieces to Thred Up and choose between making a charitable donation or payout. It's the perfect answer to buyers remorse on non-returnable items or satisfying the urge to shop when funds are low. Get cash up front or on consignment.

Reduce Recycle Reuse
I've always loved thrifting for kitchen and household items, toys, and games knowing that I was doing my part to reduce waste. However, I found thrifting for clothes time consuming and frustrating. I never dreamed I'd find an online thrift and consignment store full of my favorite Stitch Fix brands in like new condition. The prices are unreal!
As you would imagine, Thred Up receives items that are not up to their resale standards. I was happy to hear they sell this third party sellers or passed on to textile recycling companies.
I hope to use this as an opportunity to teach my kids good habits. That reminds me, I need to check out the kids clothing, too!
If you're thinking of trying Thred Up for yourself, whether it's the Goody Box or just poppin tags on a few new pieces you pick out yourself, I'd love it if you used my referral link. I think there's a $10 off coupon in it for you, too! Click here: Thred Up
