is there 1 thing you refuse to get/ use if it is not new?

I am all about saving money and doing yard sales/ freecycle/ ebay and all that but I refuse to get used children's books. My thought is I can't really sanitize them...Clothes I can wash/ toys I can bleach but kids books (baby books really) I can't sanitize it without ruining it...

  • hmmm....I have bought a ton of used books and shoes??

    I'd say the only thing I wouldn't buy used is underwear- even though it can be washed so I don't know why that is a big deal LOL so maybe a toothbrush would be it??? LOL
