  • Eun shares: “Belated, but thanks for the letting me know about this website, Trish! I used your referral and ended up with 4 sweaters for $6! Customer service was wonderful! They refunding the shipping fee because I had trouble checking out on the app that night. I haven’t received the package yet; otherwise, I would have mentioned the quality of the items. Becky, do you know about thredUP? They appear to take some Kohl’s brands… Apt. 9 and Simply Vera, but not Croft & Barrow or Sonoma (had to google the brands as I’m not familiar with Kohl’s so forgive me if I’m wrong). Here’s a calculator for the brands they accept. I think I’m going to sell my nicer stuff to Twice and sell my Target/Old Navy clothes to thredUP. They also currently have a $20 sign up credit which I did and I would give my referral link to get $10, but I don’t know if that’s allowed. I’m now aware of all the online consignment stores. lol”


  • Eun reports: “I had an amazing Target run the other night! They seem to have a lot of frozen food clearance right now. Of note, the evol chipotle quesadillas are 50% off to $2.08 (at my store), there was a 25% off cartwheel that expired Sat. (5% came out Sunday), but if you have the $1 evol IP (NLA?), they could still be a good deal. Also, Bird’s Eye Recipe Ready was clearanced to $0.98 and the $1 IP on smartsource went through beeplessly!”
