What do you preffer to shop for? Do you like new things that have never been owned before, or do you like to shop for bargains that are secondhand? I love the idea of having new things, i like to save money but i would usually preffer to save my money and find a good deal on a brand new product. I have bought many things secondhand things that i needed and could get for a small percentage of the retail price, so of course i jump at the chance but i eventually replace all the old with new.

I have never tried buying a used one. Maybe it's because I haven't been into a shop to sells used items. Actually I have seen those booksales that sell used books, but I still prefer new books than used ones, eventhough I just read this books for one time as well. With all the books that I have bought and read I'm thinking that I can sell them in Booksales as well, but sometimes the thought of letting them go makes me sad. Maybe I'll just keep them and have a library instead :)

Yeah i know it is a bit weird going to somewhere that sells old things to buy something new but it does come in handy for alot of people sometimes.

I will not shop ofr used things, especialy clothes. I do liek to bargin shop and look for deals but will not buy something that is not new or has been previously owned. Mostly because I am a germaphobic and fear then unknown, also I feel that I can get more shelf life out of something new vs something that has been used for quite some time.

I like the idea of both, but I find myself buying more and more new as thrifts shopes are not that close to me anymore. (good things to have secondhand are books, purses and things like that)
