9 Items You Should Be Buying Used

In recent years, second-hand shopping has increased in popularity. Buying items used serves two purposes: sustainability and saving money. When it comes to sustainability, more people than ever are donating unwanted items instead of throwing them away. This minimizes waste, while also giving vintage and secondhand shoppers more inventory to choose from.

As for saving money, shoppers have plenty of options to find cheaper alternatives than going to the local mall. There are second-hand stores for everything, including high-end items and furniture. Secondhand shopping is great for the environment, but also great for the budget, especially for items that you know won’t last forever.

Shoppers can take advantage of local thrift stores or look for used items online. Places liked Poshmark, Ebay and even Amazon allow you to see the quality of an item before making the purchase. Just make sure to check the return policy.

Since shopping secondhand is more convenient than ever and there are great reasons to start doing it, we feel there are certain items that should be purchased used. Keep reading to see the items we chose and why we feel you should consider getting them secondhand.

The Misadventures of Johan O’Malley: New Year, Same Old Johan

This Misadventures of Johan O’Malley: New Year, Same Old Johan takes place two weeks after The Misadventures of Johan O’Malley: A Very Merry Johan.

Who doesn’t love a man in a tuxedo? I couldn’t believe that someone my age would be hosting a black-tie New Year’s Eve party with champagne.

I made sure to triple check that I had the right invitation this time. I didn’t want a repeat of Halloween night. Melody’s invitation came the day after the holiday concert debacle. It gave me an opportunity to finally win her over and tell the truth about the song. After what Craig pulled, Johan Sebastian Craig disbanded after only one performance.
