    Pets? Eeek

    Certainly sports equipment and books.

    All my cars were bought used too but this could be a problem for others who never looked under the hood. Smile

      I sure wouldn't want someone else's problem pet! That's often why they get rid of them!

    All clothing can be bought at secondhand stores. You pay a fraction of the price and sometimes find things with new tags still.

    I don't agree with some consumer electronics and toys. You never know with electronics if they were taken care of so you might get something that only works for a week. And with toys, so many people try to sell recalled items, it's scary.

    I agree/disagree with about half the list. Putting pets on the list is kind of weird. More people should adopt if that's the point.

      I would like to hope that people are getting pets from shelters and not buying "used" pets.

    There is some jewelry you should always buy new. Used engagement rings and wedding bands are beyond tacky and cheap Big Grin
