    Default Buying second hand

    I was just watching sunrise and they were discussing the things that are best bought second hand. Some of the things they suggested were:

    Baby/maternity clothes
    Tuxedos/formal clothes
    Cars
    Furniture

    What do you prefer to buy second hand?

    I am planning on buying a second hand car and and am happy to buy second hand kids clothes as they grow out if them so quickly.

    We have a secondhand cot from my mum - really sturdy Boori cot, second hand clothes (whatever we're given), but we'll also buy new ones of course. Secondhand wraps etc.

    The only thing I really want to buy new is a decent pram.

    We got a new pram, cot mattress & car seats, but everything else was pretty much second hand. We got some new clothes, but I love hunting for bargains at the markets etc.

    We'll probably buy a second hand pram that's in good condition. Car seat and cot I'd like to buy new... But with my husband studying and working part time we may need to go exploring for second hand bargains

    This time around I will buy new cot mattress, car seat and a few items of clothing, but most other baby things i will get second hand.

    Pretty happy buying second hand these days, purely from an environmental point of view

    I didnt have anything second hand for my children. It never actually crossed my mind.

    But id probably buy a pram, toys and possibly a cot and some clothes.
