Browsing thrift and consignment stores can be a lot of fun but can also be really time consuming. You have to wade through racks and racks of clothes that aren't in your size, aren't the right style, or aren't even the right fit. And then there's the mothball smell. Yuck! Wish there was an easier way to get great deals on used clothing? Well, there is. And even better, there’s a way to get used clothing for cheap while helping the environment by recycling someone else’s old threads! It’s called Twice.

How to buy

Twice is an online consignment store offering a place to buy and sell used women's clothes and handbags at great prices. They have a wide assortment of carefully curated, used clothing. They only buy high-quality, high-end brands (no discount brands like H&M or Merona). Twice also allows you to sort by size, style, color and price so you can find exactly what you want. Or you can browse their collections which show off their favorite fitness gear, work outfits, outerwear or sweaters, just to name a few.  Twice offers full returns within 30 days and free shipping on orders over $49. You can snag an Ann Taylor midi skirt for $24.95, a pair of 7 For All Mankind jeans for $24.95, or a Trina Turk dress for just $90.95 (regularly $322!). Twice is also offering a free $10 credit on your first purchase or sale, so jump on it and get some great new (to you) clothes for very little cash.

How to sell

Twice will also pay you cash for your high-quality, used clothes. You can get paid via Paypal, check, or get credit to the site for more shopping! This is a great way to clean out your closet and get new clothes all at once. Twice offers both trendy and classic clothes so you’ll always find something you’re looking for. Selling your clothes to Twice is really easy to do. Just order a free bag from their website, which arrives in 2-3 days and can be filled with up to 30 items, or just print a pre-paid shipping label and attach it to a box you already have. Twice only accepts certain brands and doesn’t take discount or unlisted brands. They list all the brands they take on their site and will give you an estimate for what they pay for each type of item. Fill up the bag with those gently used and freshly laundered items that fit what they’re looking for and what you want to sell. Then take the bag to UPS and send it back for free since Twice pays the postage. Any items that Twice declines to purchase can be sent back to you if you pay shipping, or they’ll donate them to charity. Unlike with standard consignment stores, you don't have to wait for your items to sell before you get paid. Turn those unworn clothes into cash and let someone else love them!
