Save Money By Finding Awesome Used Stuff for Sale

Ready to buy? Before you shop new, you should always check into used stuff for sale. Here you’ll find tips to help you get the best deal and save more cash.

Gal 1, we’ll call her Sally, set a New Year’s Resolution.  She’s going to get in shape this year.  

So Sally looks through the ads, does some research, and picks out a couple of pieces of exercise equipment.

She’s got some money saved up, but she wants to get a deal.  So, she heads for the store with the best price.  

While she’s there, she picks up a couple other things and signs up for the warranty.  

And sure, she had to put some of the cost on a credit card… but she should be able to pay that off soon-ish.

Gal 2, we’ll call her Lisa, also has a New Year’s Resolution.  She’s going to declutter the house.  

Ugh. There’s that exercise equipment she bought two years ago.  It’s been nothing but a clothes rack ever since.

It still works just fine…but it’s pretty obvious she isn’t going to use it at this point.

(If I were a DIYer that might have been a bit more exciting.)
