Buying Used Items Online

used booksOne of the best ways to save money on purchases is by buying used goods online. Many people are reluctant to buy used; At the end of the day, if you can have something that’s shiny new, why would you buy used? But once you realize just how much you can save, you might change your mind about this.

The fact is, we already buy many things used, like cars or houses. What’s the difference if you buy, say, a book or video game second-hand? Here are some great things that I buy used all the time:

  • Books
  • DVDs
  • Games
  • Electronic Items
  • Computer parts

On the other hand, there are certain things I refuse to buy used since they feel too personal. Such things include:

  • Clothes
  • Furniture
  • Shoes

However, if you do decide you want items like this used, one great site to go to is Craigslist.org.

It’s up to you what to buy used, and what not to. But believe me – it ‘s a terrific way to save hundreds of dollars a year.
