12 Things to only buy USED!

Sometimes finding a deal on a new item isn’t as good as finding a deal on a “formally owned” a.k.a. pre-loved, secondhand, recycled, used-not-abused, previously loved or whatever you want to call it!   Here is a list of some of the items that are well worth looking for on a resale basis.   Let someone else take the depreciation and you get the benefit!

12 Things to only buy used!

  • Cars or motorcycles
  • Baby and Maternity Clothes
  • Books and Textbooks
  • Video Games and DVDs
  • Furniture
  • Home Decorations
  • Sports and Fitness Equipment
  • Tools
  • Musical Instruments
  • Formalwear
  • Cellphones
  • Large Kids Toys (ie: playsets, bounce houses, wagons)

Check out resale apps like Letgo, Facebook groups.  These items can be found in clothing resale shops, consignment sales, Craigslist, or a good old fashioned garage sale! Resale cellphones can be found on Groupon and Apple.

Online High-End Consignment Place

I love a great consignment sale!  See some of my previous posts about my adventures in saving & how I buy and sell at them.  There is a new luxury online consignment site!  It’s like Ebay but easier!  This is a  great place for shopping or consigning luxury brand items! Last night I spent an hour checking out all the amazing items and realized this could be awesome for Christmas and Birthday gifts for Mr. Cameraman to give to me!!

Check out The Real Real is a fabulous online high-end consignment place. Check it out.
