Top 6 things that you should not buy new

1. Cars
Unlike houses, cars depreciate 15-20% during the first three years.

2. Books
Most books are only read once and then put up on a shelf. You can find books at your local library or used books at garage sales, amazon.com, ebay.com, half.com, and bookfinder.com

3. Designer Clothing
Ebay.com and your local thrift store is a good place to start with used designer clothing.

4. CD's and DVD's
You can find great deals at garage sales, ebay, and craigslist.

5. Baby items, toys and games
Take advantage of garage sales and craigslist this Summer.

6. Homes
House usually appreciate with time. Right now is a good time to buy a used home that you can fix up.

I agree - you can get some great bargains (and recycle/reuse) by purchasing used items. I am a yard sale/thrift store fan for life!
