What to buy used

Posted: Updated:

Scoring some of the best deals is not only a feel-good moment, it is also a great moment for your wallet! These are items that can save you some big bucks when bought used...

  • Furniture...like cabinets, tables, and chairs. Your best bets are estate sales, antique stores, and yard sales. Just avoid used mattresses!
  • Designer jeans, which typically cost anywhere from $150 to $300 a pair. Gently worn jeans run about a quarter of the cost. You can pick them up at consignment shops or eBay.
  • Video games. You can get them on Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, or Walmart for about half the price.
  • Tablet computers. Refurbished models meet manufacturer specifications and will save you more than $100. Just be sure to snag one with a year-long warranty.
