Another great tip on how to save money is to buy used stuff. Buying second hand items is not a bad idea. In fact, you can come across some great finds. And when you find good items, haggle over the price. Choose good quality items that are almost half the price. There are, of course, used items that are no longer in good condition; do not buy these. The key to buying second hand items is to know where to get the good stuff. Look up the ads in newspapers.
A family might be migrating to another country or a person may need to sell his slightly used guitars or amps. Choose the sources of your second hand prospects. Inquire why it is being sold and ask some background about the seller and the item. Where was it bought? When was it purchased? It is a misconception that second hand items are damaged goods. Buy great used stuff and save money.
