Why I love Shopping at Swap.com
I love shopping online, and I love shopping at thrift stores but I have fallen in love with Swap.com. This online consignment shop has everything I could need and more. I know my prices and my brands and these are from 50 – 90% off retail. Not only can I find inexpensive great quality clothing for everyone in my family from their huge inventory, but I can sell old clothes and items we don’t use anymore. If you haven’t tried Swap.com, read on to find out why you should!
I’m a frugal girl and I’m guessing that if you are a regular reader, you are too! I like nice things are every once in awhile, I crave some “retail therapy”, aka new clothes.
I really wanted a prairie-style long dress. They are so in right now, but like most trends will be out of style in a flash. I am not a big fan of going to the mall anymore, I don’t know about you. I did go to look at the prairie dresses in a few stores but I did not want to spend a lot on something so trendy. I found exactly what I wanted at Swap.com and can I tell you how much I paid? $12.00. You heard that right. Score!
I also bought this Ralph Lauren long black dress that is timeless. I can dress it up or down and add a belt and other accessories and I paid $10.00 for it. The fabric is luxurious and the dress is so comfortable. Yes, I have a new source for deals and I’m super excited to share it with you.
I also added a black top with bell sleeves because you can never have too many black tops, right? I paid $8 for the top. So for $30, I updated my wardrobe with 3 new items that I love! I can shop as often as I want to without busting the budget and I can do it on my own time.
When I visited Swap.com, I added items to my cart as I saw things I liked and then when it was time to purchase, a day or so later, I went back and made some edits to stay on budget. But I know I’ll be back! Like with any great consignment store or thrift store, if you spot something you love, you better grab it because it may not be there when you go back for it. I’ve learned my lesson with this one!
Each of my pieces arrived wrapped in its own package within the shipment.
Thrift Store Deals, But These Are Easier to Find!
Filter by type of clothing, size, season, colors, condition, price and more . Be sure and visit their Clearance Corner for more deals and markdowns. If you have a favorite brand, just type that into the search bar. That is how I found my beautiful Ralph Lauren dress!
