Before You Buy Anything, Look For It Used.

Although you might not want to buy your underwear used from some guy on the street, most anything else that you are interested in picking up can be found somewhere online for less than retail price. Some of the best things to look for used, that can save you the most money, include:

Computer Monitors
Office Supplies
Moving Boxes
Home Hardware

Although only a partial list, these are things that do not necessarily need to be bought brand new. Online, check out Craigslist, Freecycle, Ebay and Amazon for used and/or refurbished goods, and Goodwill, The Salvation Army and other thrift stores in your neighborhood for even better deals. For most non-personal care items, there is usually always a way to get what you want at discounted pricing. So before going shopping, see if you can get what you want from one of these places and save some money!

    I’d throw “cars” in that list, too!

    All of these items should be easy to find. I often struggle with giving away stuff because people would rather buy something new than take something used for free. I’m trying to get over this mindset in certain areas (shoes, for example, would be tough) but as far as books, CDs, electronics, and the rest of the list? Easy. I can’t even begin to imagine who would rather pay for a CD than get it used.

    Now I just need to find a decent used cellphone…

    Cars, too…forgot to mention that one. Try Ebay for used cellphones. I have sold my last 2 palm phones on there!

    It certainly is worth checking for used cellphones online. When I lost my phone, I thought I would have to shell out hundreds of dollars for a new one, but I checked eBay and the same model of phone as the one I had was on auction for under $10!
