Those of you who have been reading for a while may recall this post from last February when I introduced you to ThredUp.  For those who aren't familiar, ThredUp is a national online consignment shop that buys & sells like-new women's & children's clothes.  They sell mainstream retail & designer brands like J. Crew, Ann Taylor, Joie, Tory Burch & Kate Spade.  I've used their service several times for both myself & my kids and have always been impressed (plus they offer free shipping!). 

They just recently launched a new part of their site exclusively for handbags that I'm really excited about.  You can request a "Clean Out Bag" to be sent to you for free, send in your gently used handbags and they will pay you 100% of the selling price for all bags sent in by 12/31 (which means they are taking no commission from the sale).  As part of this new promotion, they are also giving away a designer bag each week - a Fendi on 12/15 (that's today!) and a Chloe on 12/22.  You can click here to enter for your chance to win.

Since this is the time of year when everyone has so many gifts to buy, it's easy to get into a tight spot with your budget - what better way to earn a little extra shopping money for presents than to resell a bag you're no longer using?!  As part of my collaboration with ThredUp, I decided to take advantage of their new program by reselling a bag that I haven't used much.  

I've featured it a few times here on the blog and, although it is absolutely gorgeous, it isn't one that I find myself reaching for on a regular basis.  And I decided that I'd rather have money from the sale to use on something more essential.  So, I requested my own Clean Out Bag and shipped in this Michael Kors tote for them to list for me (so much easier than having to do it myself!).  I'm anxious to see how much it will sell for and I can't wait to be able to then use that cash to buy Christmas gifts for my family.  Interested in trying out their service for yourself?  You can request your own Clean Out Bag for free here.  Or you can shop their current selection of clothing, handbags & shoes all at amazing prices!
Thank you to ThredUp for kindly sponsoring this post.
