Buying used items can save you plenty of cash, but there are some things you should always buy new. Let’s take a look at the items that — if you can afford to — should be purchased new.
Kids interact with their furniture in ways adults do not. Kids will chew on cribs and jump off bunk beds. You want the furniture to be as new as possible so that they’re up to date on safety guidelines.
Just like children’s furniture, you do not want to buy used car seats. It all comes down to safety. If you buy a used car seat, it might be missing parts or even worse, has been in a crash. Car seats that have been in a crash are compromised and not safe to use.
Used medicine is another safety concern. You don’t know where that medicine has been and why it was offered up for sale.
