ThredUP.com , an awesome website where parents can swap kids clothes, toys and now BOOKS online. When you sign up HERE you’ll get your first box of kids items for FREE. All you have to do is pay for the shipping ($10.95). Below is an example of a listing that you will find on ThredUP. Each listing will tell you what the box contains, if it is for a girl or boy, and what size the items are.
After you select a listing based on that initial criteria it will tell you exactly what brands and specific items are contained in the box. Here is an example:
Just select the box you want and you’ll get the entire thing for FREE if you are a new member. Shipping willbe $10.95…which isn’t bad for an entire box of items!
ThredUP also just launched a Summer Book Swap!
Just send a box of your used books (through ThredUP) to another family who wants them (before June 14) and you’ll get a $5 swap credit! Your credit can be used towards thousands of boxes full of pre-loved clothes, toys or books listed by other thredUP moms.
When you send a box of pre-loved books to another family, you’ll also receive a Summer Reading Package worth over $40! Inside the package you’ll find $25 towards book rentals from BookSwim, 30% off an order at Chronicle Books with free shipping and 5 credits (worth $2.99 each) towards eBook rentals at eBookFling.
Here is how you can get in on the Summer Book Swap deal:
1. Gather all the books your child no longer reads, and list them by the boxful on thredUP.
2. ThredUP will send you complimentary empty USPS boxes. If you don’t want to wait, you can also go grab them for free at your local post office.
3. When another mom picks your box of books, thredUP will let you know, generate the shipping label and schedule home pick-up, so you can send books without leaving the house! It’s even easier than Goodwill and you’ll send your family’s once loved books directly to another child who wants them.

For every box you send on thredUP, you’ll earn additional ‘picks’ allowing you to select boxes of pre-loved kids clothes, toys or books listed by other moms across the country. Pay only $5 + shipping to pick one and have it delivered to your door!
