I love the fall because its the perfect time of year to refresh your home, your wardrobe and your life! So let’s deal with home first shall we…
Getting ready for back to school always makes me do a little cleaning of the closets and packing up the things the kids have outgrown into neat little piles, then I place them in bags, then I start to congratulate myslef on what a great job I’ve just done. The bags sit there for 3 weeks and as I pass them I think… Now what am I suppose to do with them? They’re suddenly more annoying to me then they were cluttering up the closet!
If my habit sounds familiar, I have a Savvy Sassy Suggestion!

Another reason to give thredUp the thumbsUp
They just wrapped up a “green” back-to-school campaign that raised raised $3,000 for Cradles to Crayons, an organization that provides new and gently used essentials to children living in homeless or low-income situations.
FYI: Back-to-school season continues to rank among one of the most wasteful times of the year. With over 20 billion pounds of clothing and textiles headed to U.S. landfills each year, thredUP recognizes the importance of sustainably. Since the company’s launch, thredUP has helped parents recycle upwards of 50,000 pounds of kids clothing.
