With spring just around the corner, thredUP -- the biggest online retailer of second-hand apparel -- is helping customers get into the cleaning mindset by giving away free Clean Out Kits and giving you a chance to earn cash. To get your hands on a Clean Out Kit, just order one online and thredUP will send it directly to your front door.
Once you received your Clean Out Kit, fill it with high-quality clothing, shoes, handbags, and accessories. According to the brand, a good rule of thumb to follow to ensure your items get accepted by thredUP is to ask yourself "Would I give this to my best friend." Once you have determined which items to sell, leave your bag at a mail carrier and thredUP will inspect, photograph, list, and ship all the items for you.
You'll earn cash or credit for all the accepted items and the unaccepted items will be responsibly recycled or sent back to you for a small fee. For philanthropic cleaners, they can opt to have $5 per bag sent to the charity of your choice in place of potential profits.
