Honest Review of ThredUp

Selling Clothes:

The instructions that came in the kit and that were provided on the website were easy to follow. As someone who was concerned with how ThredUp would dispose of the clothes that they did not consider to be profitable, I was reassured that the items are passed onto third party sellers or their textile recycling partners. When then repurpose the items into new useful products. My only complaint when it comes to the selling of clothes is that I did not received as much of a store credit as I expected. For the overall concept of the company I will continue to be a costumer mainly for the fact that as an Environmental Studies student I am a supporter of their message of encouraging second-hand use. 

Buying Clothes:

When it comes to the functionality of the app and website I find it to be very customizable to the type of products I am looking for. There are clear and accurate descriptions of the products: size, fabric type, color, condition, brand, etc. The quality of the pictures on the products are a great representation of the item. The fact that they photograph a majority of the items on a manikin is a feature that I find to be very useful. I have had a few busts when it comes to clothing items that I have purchased from ThredUp. This is not due to the fact that the item was not accurate to the provided description, it was because I am particular when it comes to the fit and texture of my clothes. An aspect of the ThredUp that could use improvement is an increase in products in the Juniors section. I know this will just take time in part because the website receives most of its products in the Women's section. 


Even with the few complaints that I have when it comes to ThredUp they are not enough to deter me from continuing to sell and purchase from them. I would encourage anyone to give the company a try whether that means selling clothes or buying clothes.

2022 Update: ThredUp published their 2021 Resale Report, I recommend giving it a read. It has lots of informative statistics and graphics about fashion and secondhand shopping.

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule After my first semester of college I have developed a cleaning routine that I have been able to keep up with. You can read my previous blog post about What I Learned In My First Semester of College . Over the past few months I have experimented and I am confident in the routine that I have created.  Personalize When it comes to personalizing the schedule you could add or take out the different chores. For example I also wash my retainers weekly and monthly my roommate and I decorate the marker board on the outside of our door. We also only clean our mirrors when needed since we have found that they do not seem to become too dirty regularly. Something that I would make sure you sanitize every week would be the surfaces that you are constantly touching. That means light switches, door handles, and your desk. By doing this I managed to avoid getting sick when my roommate and other floor mates go sick. Another task that you could add to y

Bullet Journal Fitness and Workout Spread Ideas

If you want to purchase some of these spreads you can buy the digital bundle from my Etsy shop: Simply Paperless .  I had created six different bullet journal fitness and workout trackers/spreads. These spreads were made in my digital bullet journal using the GoodNotes App.   I highly recommend to use a stylus when using GoodNotes as a digital bullet journal. For this project I used the Adonit Dash 3 Stylus , which I highly recommend. I also recommend the Bargain Depot Stylus 2 Pack  from Amazon. Daily Workout Plan This first spread can be used to plan out what exercises you plan to workout each day of the week. I would recommend this spread for those who are just starting to workout.

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book: Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus was Jackie's choice for the month of October. Jackie is the host of The Readheads Podcast Book Club. This is a monthly podcast book club that I have been apart of since it was established in 2020. I love getting to hear the thoughts of the hosts each month.  Content of the Book: Elizabeth Zott is a chemist but is much more than meets the eye. She is not only beautiful but also extremely smart, confident, strong, and not afraid to beat to her own drum. Elizabeth is one of the only female chemists working at Hastings Research Institute. She is viewed as different by everyone there. It's there that she meet Nobel-Prize nominated chemist Calvin Evans. Calvin who falls in love with Elizabeth is described as a loner, grudge holder, and extremely brilliant. Fast forward a few years and Elizabeth is now a single-mother working as the host of the most watched cooking show, Supper at Six . With Elizabeth's ways of
