Find out what great things you can buy secondhand with these tips from Savvy Sugar.
Although I admit that new can sometimes be very nice, old or used can be just as good! Here are some examples of used goodies that are even better than new:
Books and Magazines
Go to your neighborhood library and take out a book or flip through their magazines. You can also buy used books that look practically brand new from websites such as Amazon, or trade them on the web at Swap.com.
There are plenty of cute pets waiting to be loved at your local shelter. Remember, adopting older dogs has its benefits, too. For example, you won't need to bother with potty training, and most dogs calm down after they pass the rapscallion puppy stage.
Vintage bags give the classic brand names a one-of-a-kind twist (after all, you don't see these golden oldies in stores anymore!). You can also consider renting a handbag from Avelle's Bag Borrow or Steal.
