The Clothing Sort Fashion Show (Plus ThredUP Clothing Swap Premium Membership Giveaway)

As the weather changes each season, the girls and I play fashion show to clean out our closets & sort stored clothing. We’ll start with my oldest—Stacia tries on anything she would still wear this season (her tastes change with no warning, but that’s a rant for another day!).

If it fits, her job is to hang it up in her closet. If it doesn’t, she adds it to Brenia’s clothing pile. Brenia’s fashion show begins as we go through the same process. Anything that is too small for her, gets passed down to Lorelai for her turn.

The girls are already begging for our fall fashion show, and not just because they’ve had to pull out the hoodies for our recent cool mornings. We play music, pull out the scarves & toy jewelry and make a fun afternoon out of the entire process. When the fashion show ends, I take stock of what is in their closet so I can buy coordinating pieces to complete the season’s wardrobe. And, the clothes that fit no one have to go!

This year, we’re checking out ThredUP—I’ll list our leftovers, boxed by size, on the site for others who may need them. When someone selects our box, I get to send it to them for free!

So many sites with this type of swap system are actually the other way around, where you pay to ship your items but receive them for free. I like this idea so much better since it won’t cost me anything to clear out our closet.

If I find a box of clothing for my own girls, it will cost just $13 for shipping. This is going to be a great way to fill in the rest of their fall wardrobe. The service itself is free, but a premium membership gives you access to additional details about the swap boxes, plus the option to buy special GoldenThred boxes. These are boxes of brand new items from their partners—but you still only pay $13 for shipping!

    My quadruplet grandbabies (now almost 5 years old) and their big 6 year old brother have spend either 2 or 3 days each week at our house for the past few years — until last month when they all started school. My “closet” will be dressers full of outgrown clothing that desperately needs to find a new home so I can get some new clothes that actually fit for the weekends when they’re at our house. I’d LOVE to win this membership!
