Frugal Living: Why Buy New?

If you find something that you really need (or occasionally really want), don’t automatically go to the store and purchase it.

Ebay, Craigslist and your local classifieds are all great resources for finding great deals on used items. Did you know that you can buy many items in used (sometimes even new) condition AND save a lot of money?

Last year, I was on the hunt for some new tires for my truck. For several weeks, I scanned craigslist daily trying to find some tires for a cheaper price than my local tire dealer. Finally, I came across 4 brand new tires for $175 less than what I was quoted locally. It was a rare find, but a deal none the less.

So next time you’re on the lookout for something new, try doing a quick search for it on these websites for a few weeks and see if you can find a deal!
