Thrifty Thursday – Money Saving Tip – Buying Used

Better late than never, right? In light of what I shared on Tuesday about the two greenhouses, I thought that I would just share one money saving tip that can save a huge amount of money – buying used.


Craigslist (be very careful though, we have had some bad experiences, but we’ve also had some good ones too.)

Recently, we have been blessed to have found a freezer, a refrigerator, a nearly new dishwasher, the greenhouses and a canopy tent. We keep our eyes open to many other things as well, especially farm related. I like to see how different people price things and get a feel for what we’d like to pay for things. It pays to research. I know when I don’t, I regret it.

By purchasing used items, you can cut your cost by half or even 75% which is a significant savings. I like new looking things as much as anybody, but with a bit of elbow grease most things can come clean relatively easily.
