 I just recently started coming back to CM so if this post has been done before, sorry, I missed it.

I was just wondering if anyone was uncomfortable shopping at consignment stores, yard sales, etc.?

I am all for it. I always go to our local Goodwill for school clothing, and we have many facebook groups here that sell their used items. I just got most of my son's school clothes on there for $40! Some still had tags on them!

I know some other people feel differently about used clothes so I just want to know your opinion and why!

I'm a thrift store shopper. If I buy new it's from clearance racks. I'm kind of cheap. Lol

I won't buy used carseats or anything like that but I don't mind used clothes if they are in good condition. I just wash them first.

I am fine with used clothes. If I am buying new I normally buy from clearance also.

I don't mind used clothing from people I know, but I won't go to a garage sale etc and buy them. I'd rather purchase new from the clearance rack.

I love buying used and saving money. I actually just bought 9 pairs of jeans for my son($225 worth) for $25. A couple still had the tags on them. I'm hoping to find a good deal like that for my other son but even if I don't I have already saved a ton!

Theres a couple of good shops near me...I'm all about saving a few bucks. I've caught great deals on brand new items with the tags!

Nearly everything I buy is second hand. I even prefer second hand furniture, except mattresses.

The nice thing about used clothes is they are pre-shrunk and the colors won't bleed like new clothes :)

We have a local kids consignment store that I adore. I always find brand new stuff there for dirt cheap. And I love yard sales! I find so many great toys and clothes for my little guy. I hate paying full price for stuff he'll outgrow or stop playing with in just a few months.

I don't shop at places like that. I wouldn't want my kids wearing something used from someone I don't know. I donate most of my kids old clothes to salvation army though.
