ThredUp.com Review & Giveaway


My 5-year-old is getting ready to start kindergarten (tears down my cheek), and my 4-year-old is gearing up for preschool.  I just got back from buying markers, glue, and all the other boring necessities for school.  It's much more fun to shop for back-to-school CLOTHES!  


For those, I've been using ThredUp.com.  They buy and sell like-new clothes, handbags, shoes, and more.  I recently ordered several dresses and shoes for my girls.  The kids loved the polka dot box it all came in, and I loved that it was all in really nice condition.  The shoes absolutely looked brand new (and must be, because how else would you keep kids shoes in perfect shape??).

I love that you can browse ThredUp.com by size, condition, brand, color...you can break it down to exactly what you're looking for.  And the prices are great (you can also browse by price!).  



They also have a rewards program for Back to School called "Back2You" that awards customers with a credit of 10% of every kids' item you purchase between now and September 15th. No need to sign-up or join to participate - just shop like normal and earn! On September 15th they will calculate the earned amount and deposit a credit into the customers account, which can then be used by mom to buy something from the women's category for herself! 


If you'd like to win a $100 gift code to use on ThredUp.com, enter the rafflecopter below!

Great Summer Buys

Let me start by saying that I was in no way compensated by anyone for this post, and didn't receive anything free.  I just found some clothes online recently that I LOVE, and wanted to share.

http://www.rosegal.com/blouses/bohemian-colorful-broad-stripe-print-66754.html

I'm wearing the shirt above right now. It's cool, comfortable, and makes me feel so much cuter than when I'm just wearing a black t-shirt, which is my standard uniform.  Did I mention it's only $8.75 right now on rosegal.com?? 

I also ordered the shirt below.  It's $8.60 right now on rosegal.com.

 

There's tons of cute stuff on rosegal.com to check out.  What are your favorite online sites?  Please comment below!

Honey Bunches of Oats Single-Serve Cups

Let me start by saying I love cereal.  I always have.  I have grown up from the sugary stuff to the much better for me stuff.  Lately I've been sampling Honey Bunches of Oats with crispy almonds in single-serve cups.




According to official peeps at Post,
"We've taken crispy flakes and tasty, crunchy oat cluster from our original flavor and added slices of almonds."

The single-serve cups are great if you don't have time to sit and eat breakfast at home, and just need to grab something on the way out the door.  And it's a good portion of cereal (2.25 oz.).  Even better, since it comes in its own little container, you don't have to wash another bowl!  We've been taking several road trips this summer, and these single-serve cups are VERY easy to throw in our snack bag.

As far as nutrition goes, one cup provides 5g of protein and contains essential vitamins & minerals.  I always check the amount of fiber, and this has 3g in one container, and has 260 calories.

If you'd like to try Honey Bunch of Oats with almonds, you can order online!

Disclosure--I was given samples to facilitate my review, but not otherwise compensated for this post.  All opinions are honest.
