Special K Challenge & Threadflip Goes Mobile
First, an announcement: I’m excited to work with SHAPE and participate in the Special K Challenge! I try to eat the best that I can, but sometimes I get sidetracked or stressed at work, which leads me to make some bad food choices. While I don’t want to lose a lot of weight, I thought trying a modified version of this challenge would help keep me on track. Instead of replacing two meals every day with a Special K product, I’m just to replace one. This will come in especially handy on nights or weekends when I have to work my second job and don’t have time to eat a full meal. I will be blogging about my progress a few times over the next two weeks, so stay tuned!
[FTC disclosure: SHAPE Magazine provided me with the funds to buy the Special K products with the expectation of blogging about my experience. However, I am only blogging a few times so not to lose sight of what Fresh Squeezed is all about]
Now, on to the fashion stuff.
“The latest funding round was led by Shasta Venture, with participation from Lowercase Capital bringing total funding raised to $8.1M. Shasta Ventures’ Tod Francis joins Threadflip’s board of directors,” said Jessica Mullens of Mullens Public Relations in a press release.
I just had the opportunity to download it last night, and I must say it is very easy to use and streamlined. The user interface is simple and basic, just like the desktop website. I can’t wait to use it to upload new items to my closet using the app! As I said in my first post about the site, many brick-and-mortar consignment shops will charge you up to 40% to sell your clothes. You barely make anything off of that! Threadflip charges just 20% and helps you factor in the cost of shipping the item as you are pricing. The best part? Everything can be done from your home. In pjs. I love it.
I just made my first sale (woohoo!) so I will be uploading more items to replace that one. I also plan on adding more shoes and accessories as well. If you’re looking to clean out your closet and want to make a few extra bucks, definitely give site a try.
What kind of items would you buy on Threadflip?
