Looking for ways to save? For more and more people, buying second hand has become a first choice for saving money. And second hand doesn’t have to necessarily mean rummaging around a musty old thrift store!

There are tons of websites where you can find nearly brand new stuff — for a fraction of the cost!

8 Items to Buy Used!

  • Clothing
  • Gift Cards
  • MP3s
  • Cars
  • Exercise Equipment
  • Jewelry
  • Books
  • Electronics

Save big bucks by buying used

If you’re looking for children’s clothing, try ThredUp.com. You can buy everything from 12 months to size 20 at discounts up to 80% off retail—all without leaving your home to go to a thrift store!

You may also want to check out ShopGoodwill.com, which is like an eBay of sorts for Goodwills from across the country.

You can also get great deals on pre-owned gift cards. There’s a whole resale market for cards that other people have gotten as gifts that they either can’t or don’t want to use.

Websites like CardPool.com, GiftCardGranny.com and GiftCardRescue.com offer a way to unload those unloved gift cards for a small profit.
