LIVERMORE (KRON) — Let’s talk clothes shopping.
There are some great apps that can help you score deals on kid’s clothes, and help you make money from your kids’ used clothes too.
“So, thredUP is the world’s largest online consignment store, so we help parents save money buying kids clothes online and help them recycle their kids’ clothes.”
On thredUP, you can save up to 90 percent on name-brand, like-new clothes.
“You can find great deals on thredUP.” “Our items start at $1.49. It really is the best sort of value for kids clothing.”
thredUP can also help you sell your kids’ used clothes. They will send you a pre-paid shipping bag that you fill up and mail back to them.
They take those clothes, take pictures of them, post them, and when they sell, you get up to 40 percent of the final selling price.
Next, up let’s look at the app schoola.
Again, like thredUP, you can find incredible deals on name brand kids clothes in like-new condition.
“The majority of our clothes are anywhere from 60 percent to 90 percent off retail price.”
And as an added bonus, when you shop or sell through schoola, it can benefit your kids’ school. Forty percent of what you spend on this app is donated to a school of your choice.
A lot of Bay Area schools are signed up with schoola using the kickback money to fund their music, sports, or technology programs.
It is an easy process. They send you a pre-paid shipping bag, you fill it, and mail it in.
Livermore Valley Charter Public School has been working with schoola, having their parents shop and donate through them. And they just got this check for over $5,000.
