Remember the old adage: one man’s trash is another man’s treasure? Many people throw out items that could be useful to you.

Before you buy something new, consider trying to locate a “like new” or gently used item. With the internet, finding what you want is nearly as easy as stepping into a store. Try online resale sites, local consignment shops or classified ads in local papers. You will more than likely save some money and reduce waste-a win-win!


Some ideas to help you get started!

• Craigslist
• eBay
• Amazon (used books)
• Yard/Garage Sale
• Auction
• Classified Ads in local papers
• Consignment or pawn shop
• Used children’s clothing and toy shop
• Used sporting goods shop
• Antique shops
• Library book sales
• Local Facebook swap/exchange groups
