Promoting frugality as a way to live a simple and prosperous life.
I love thrift stores (just bought two nearly-new designer tops for myself at Goodwill Westport today!). So here’s an innovation: an online thrift store!
Twice is a new online site that offers gently worn designer clothing at a deep discount. It works sort of like this: people send in items, get cash, then you get the benefit of buying it. The site is brand new so it’s tough to get on it right now. But the offerings look great. I am not so sure I’d actually buy myself anything other than shoes, however.–and I don’t see those on the site at the moment. I am at the age where I really need to try things on to see if it’s long enough over my hips–lol! I’ll look forward to the shoe selection!
Here’s a bit from the Website:
How Does Twice Work?
Twice is like a brick & mortar clothing resale store, but online. Sellers send in their clothing (we pay shipping), and we make an offer for their items. We pay for everything upfront, so you get your cash right away! Buyers purchase items from our store, where most of our items are available for 70-90% off retail. And we offer free shipping on orders over $49 ($5 otherwise) and free 30-day returns.
The $5 shipping isn’t bad, either — it’s like a gallon of gas I’d use to get to and from a store! If you use the site, let us know if it works for you.
Another seriously sad fact from the website: the average person throws away over 170 pounds of clothing a year! However, the frugal know to donate anything in good shape, offer things as hand-me-downs, and if clothing is in rough shape, we take off the buttons for other uses and cut the garment up into rags!
