$20 Credit for ThredUp (which is also a great way to declutter clothing)

image

I’m off enjoying summer, but wanted to let you know about this!

Have you decluttered using ThredUp? It’s a great (and easy) way to get rid of nice clothing that you KNOW is worth something without the hassle of selling it yourself. If you haven’t, now is the perfect time to sign up because you get a $20 credit (it’s usually $10) to get something nice for yourself to replace (not add to) what you’re purging. Or even better, purge 5 or 10 items for every new-to-you piece. If you’re new to ThredUP, use my link here to get the credit (and I’ll get one too!). I’ve loved the items I’ve gotten on ThredUP, including that NEW tankini top I’m wearing in the picture!

With $20, you can easily get something (or two or three somethings).

Go here to sign up and get the credit.

Not sure how the decluttering part of it works? Here’s a post where I explain that.

Another Reader Has the Conversation: No Tutu for Me, Thanks.

Dear Dana,

I had a Clutter Avoidance conversation! My sister hosted a swimming party at her house and asked us all (I have 6 sisters, plus we have kids) to wear tutus! Yes, it was just as much fun as it sounds.  I made mine from my scrap material bin, and each of my 4 daughters already had one. I don’t have to feel guilty about throwing mine away, because it was made from scraps! At the end of the pool party, my sister who hosted the day took her tutu off and handed it to me. Everyone else tutu’s were made from tulle, and she told me she wanted me to have a tutu as well. “I have a tutu!” I told her, but thank you!

She persisted, so I changed tactics. I have been posting how many things I’m getting rid of on our family group page. I’ve been very vocal about my decluttering, so I said, in a playful tone, “You know how hard I’m working on getting things OUT of my house, right?!” Then 2 of my other sisters backed me up in a playful way. I complimented the tutu one last time, and told her I just didn’t need it, but thank you.

I don’t think I could have done this in the past! I would have just taken it, with plans of donating it later, then one of my kids would start playing with it… Thanks to your videos I was ready!

She wasn’t letting me off easily either, “You could play dress up with your girls! this one is big and fluffy!” It was tough!

I am going to call her and make sure she wasn’t offended. She probably wasn’t. This is just the guilt, right? I’m not the only one who feels this way when they say ‘no’ to clutter. She has a very tidy house, and is also not a fan of keeping everything. That’s why she was giving me the tutu.

Signed,

A Girl with One Less Tutu

From Our Mailbox: Why Some Homes (Like Mine) Look Cluttered and Others Don’t

Nony here: I loved this recent comment from Amanda so much, I had to share it with all of you. She makes great observations about why some people’s homes (like mine) look cluttered, and others look awesome with the same amount of stuff!!

     I have a job where I am in and out of different people’s homes all day long. I was reflecting on what makes some homes (including mine) look “cluttered” with objects, while other homes have a lot of objects in them, but instead of “clutter” words more like “well-appointed” come to mind.
One of the differences that came to mind is that a lot of the “objects” in my home are “partially broken” items, or items “with potential” (you know, if I just do this-or-that with this item, it will be perfectly useful to us again, so I shouldn’t get rid of it). Thing is – I never actually DO the “this-or-that thing” and everything just ends up sitting around being CLUTTER.  It’s not the *only* reason for clutter in my house, but it’s a nice reason to have recognized and be able to “call myself” on to help with getting rid of things I should no longer hold on to.

I totally identified with this post!!!
