Navigate thredUP`s seemingly endless number of apparel, shoes, and accessories by sharing these shopping secrets, at ThredUp.
  1. Look frequently. You know how some people unwind for the day by looking at Facebook for twenty minutes? That`s what Janssen does with thredUP. She browses through a couple of times a week because their inventory turns over all the time so you never know what might pop up.
  2. Start with shoes. She looks at shoes most often because she knows exactly what size she is and shoes aren`t as tricky to figure out online as other items.
  3. Stick with brands you know. If Banana Republic clothing never fits or flatters you when you buy it new, it`s very unlikely to start magically fitting when it`s secondhand. On the other hand, if you`re a loyal Gap or J.Crew or Anthropologie lover, try those brands on thredUP - you`ll know what their sizing means and you`ll have a good feel for their style and fit.
  4. Shop with a goal in mind. It`s one thing to go to Old Navy without any particular idea of what you want to buy because they have things organized beautifully and mannequins all over the stores to give you outfit ideas. But when it`s just individual items on thredUP, it can be overwhelming. You`ll have much better luck on thredUp when you enter the site thinking, "need a new pair of black jeans" or "I`d like a striped sweatshirt."
  5. Use the filters. The filters will help you narrow things down really quickly. For instance, if you decide you need a few new t-shirts for the summer months, filter to tops, then ones with short-sleeves with a scoop or v-neck iny your size, which will reduce your number of options to a more manageable amount. The search tool is pretty excellent too.
  6. Buy higher-end than you might normally. One of the big draws of thredUP is that you can buy a $95 J.Crew top for $15. Higher-end clothes fit so much better.
  7. Try things on twice (or three times). When you get your box from thredUP, try everything on. You may find that you immediately put things back in the box to return that you don`t like. The ones that you do decide to keep? Try those things on again a day or so later to make sure you really want them.
  8. Return things that don`t fit. When something comes from thredUP that doesn`t quite fit or flatter you, resist the urge to say "well, it was only $5." Send it back. Think about choosing to get your refund as in store credit so that you can get free shipping the next time you make an order.
  9. Keep in mind the clearance items aren`t returnable With thredUP, clearance items aren`t returnable so the other categories might be a better bet if you`re not 100% sure.
  10. Don`t forget the extras. You can also buy scarves, hats, and handbags on thredUP (note: the handbags aren`t returnable, so keep that in mind when you`re ordering).
  11. Kids too! They don`t have men`s clothing on thredUP but they do have tons of kids` clothing. You can cost-effectively restock all of your kids` wardrobes. And since thredUP`s prices are higher-end, they`ll actually hold up for more than one washing.
