I don't like buying used things but I have in the past. I've got some books, a game and some earings. All because I didnt have enough money for new ones , haha.

well i buy not because of money constraints but by choice. If you can buy it half the price then why not? but there are some things that you cant buy brand new like some of the historic books that i have.

I've bought books, definitely cars, I've bought used furniture, clothing, dishes. I have even made a rule with my family that we will not purchase any brand new dishes or glassware from a store since there is so much already out there. You can always find some really interesting dishes or glassware and it's fun. I do have to say never have I bought used shoes. Only because feet are individual and important and it's best to walk a mile in your own shoes. :)

i sometimes bought the second hand thing like cellphone and television. The reason is that my neighbor is in need and that she is selling it to me. so to be of help i bought it and at the same time, i was able to have those things in a second hand price that it just slightly used. like you, i buy second hand books too. its a one of my way of saving

well i have bought a lot of 2nd hand books about the web, web designs in a fraction of the real price. the best thing about it is that even if you have a 5 year old book it is still useful because web language dont change that much over the years.

I haven't, but my parents have. They bought me a used car a few years ago. I love my little silver 1998 Acura Integra. It's a good car. I wouldn't ask for anything else!

I buy a lot of second hand items, from eBay and from charity shops. Last month I bought a bundle of summer clothes on eBay for my daughter - 3 tops and 6 pairs of shorts, and they were as good as new - for a fraction of the price. As long as the items I'm buying don't look tatty, I don't mind.

I have bought plenty of used things over the years. Cars, clothing, books and other miscellaneous items come to mind. A lot of times used articles are just as good as brand new ones.
