Posts Tagged ‘what not to buy garage sale’

I came across this article from Reader’s Digest about Things You Should Never Buy at Yard Sales:

Reader’s Digest Yard Sale Article

Some of the items I agree with: carseats, car tires, Laptops/computers

Some of the items I disagree with. We’ve gotten some bike helmets that are in excellent condition (never used, even). We’ve gotten swimming suits and shoes for our kids. And, we always buy cheap DVD’s at yard sales.

What would I stay away from at a yard sale? Underwear (duh ;), VHS tapes (I can’t believe people still use them), electronics (unless they plug them in for me and I can test them), worn out clothing, etc. . .Pretty obvious stuff. I did buy our crib second-hand w/ my first child, but I don’t think they had so many regulations then (10 years ago). That’s just the list off the top of my head.

What will you NOT buy at a yard sale?
