Become a savvier shopper with these tips and tricks from shopping experts.
“One great way to shop is at second-hand venues such as consignment stores, thrift stores, estate sales, flea markets and auctions. Not only can you buy things that you can personally use there (anything from clothes to artwork to items for your home), but you can often also re-sell them for more money. There’s a short period of time to sell items at estate sales, so you get better prices. Often, items are half-price the second day of a sale, so if you’re unsure if you want to make a purchase, check back a day later to see if the price has dropped further. This is a great opportunity to find quality items in good condition that you wouldn’t otherwise come across.”
