Every New Year begins with great expectations. This will be the year you become a domestic goddess with a supremely organized, clutter-free closet, you tell yourself. This will be the year to tackle the tall stack of jeans that’s been growing since seventh grade. This will be the year to finally say goodbye to those platform sandals you haven’t worn since 2002 and toss out silky blue top number three.

You stay strong in your resolve and start pawing through the racks, but almost as quickly as it started, your determination dissolves. There’s just. So. Much. And, trust us, we know it’s hard to bid adieu to once-beloved fashion finds (yes, even those bell-bottom jeans you wore on freshman move-in day). Although cleaning our closet is definitely not a favorite pastime, we’ve found a fantastic website that makes it much less of a hassle — and maybe even fun.
Meet thredUP — it's one part e-consignment shop, one part e-commerce store, and it makes it a breeze to whip your closet into shape. Toss any unwanted clothes in good condition in a complimentary Clean Out bag, ship them back for free, and in exchange, you’ll receive shopping credits or PayPal cash when your items sell. It’s that simple. Then, shop other thredUP customers’ like-new clothing and accessories from name brands like ASOS and Club Monaco — all at up to 90% off retail prices. Failed resolutions, you’ve met your match.
If you’re not already tearing things off hangers, get ready for even more organizational motivation. We’ve partnered with thredUP to giveaway all the tools for a truly revamped wardrobe in 2014. One lucky winner will receive a grand prize of $250 worth of storage essentials chosen by R29 stylists and a $1,000 shopping spree on thredUP — enter here, and it could be you! Plus, your closet will be cleared and ready to welcome all those new clothes after a free styling Skype session with an R29 editor, who will give you a personalized assessment of what to keep and what to toss.
The dreaded closet clean out is starting to look like a piece of cake, right? With thredUP making the process as painless as possible, maybe 2014 will finally be the year to transform your stuffed-to-the-gills closet into a decluttered oasis. All you have to do is enter here for your chance to win.
