A friend of ours needed help with back-to-school shopping, and with four kids I know very well how expensive it can be. So I decided to get it done, before everyone else did their back-to-school shopping and snatched up all of the deals. Right now you can find lots of back-to-school appropriate clothing including name brand clothing and uniform separates such khaki shorts, skorts, skirts, jeans, capris and even uniform dresses and pants for as low as $2 at ThredUp. You can also find shoes, and don’t forget to check out the jackets section – everything is on sale and you can get beautiful coats and jackets for as low as $2 after the ThredUp discount!

I was able to get 7 pieces of clothing for the most adorable little girl, who is going to start kindergarten this year, and there was even a new with tag skort in between as well. I also picked up 2 jackets to put in Bellamy Blue’s clothing baskets, some cute little dresses and a towel dress for the pool.

I was able to find some great pieces of clothing from my favorite brands such as Gymboree, Tommy Hilfiger, Oshkosh B’Gosh, The Children’s Place, The Gap, Disney, Levis, DKNY and American Living, all quality brands which are easy to resell.

Thanks to ThredUp, I am able to dress my little girl in the most gorgeous dresses and outfits, and everything from ThredUp always comes in like new condition. I also consider myself very fortunate to be able to help out my friend and her little girl, even though we do not have leftover money in our budget.

I have shopped at ThredUp several times, and I have never been disappointed by the quality of the clothing.
