Things you should never buy used

Updated on June 17, 2010

 One thing of the things I love to do, that I don't get to do anymore, is go to Garage Sales and Flea markets. There are some things that you just have to know that you should NEVER buy used!

One of those things is of course :

Baby gear of any kind! Let's face it. You know nothing about the gear in questions past! Was it involved in a wreck? Did the baby suffer some unfortunate accident in it? Never skimp and save when it comes to the safety of your child/children.

Undergarments and or swimwear: That alone should tell you enough!

Pet supplies : Things such as dog bedding, hampster cages etc..... Smells, odors, diseases, lice, ticks etc Even if they have sat unused in a dingy basement things like these can ferment and well lets face it....... Keep your pets clean!

Vacuum cleaners: Sometimes going cheap isn't always the best option. You really have to think to yourself......"there is a reason they are getting rid of this!" In the end the used vacuum could end up costing you more to fix rather than if you just went out and bought a new one! A good upright vacuum cleaner can be purchased for less than $100 at your nearest walmart, target, k-mart or even sears.

Shoes: Getting a great deal on a pair of gently used shoes may seem amazing at the time. But if you think about it. Why would you wear something that has been molded to someone else's feet. This in the end could actually give you problems in your back and even bunions. Don't risk your health over a great pair of marked down shoes!

Mattresses: Awwww comfort right? Think of all the things that you do in your bed.... Got the mental image yet? Now think of sleeping on someone else's used mattress that maybe have done the same things or worse! Really wanna sleep in that?

These are just a few things that you should really consider buying new instead of used.
