Summer is prime time for yard sales, but the site Money Talks News says you should avoid buying certain items used!
Here are some examples, taken from Money Talks News:
Stuffed animals - Children love to stick stuffed animals into their mouths, and you just don’t know where it’s previously been
Plasma and HDTVs – Old tube-style TVs held up a lot better than modern flat-screens, and repairs for the newer versions cost upward of on grand
Mattresses – A used mattress can come with a lot of extras you don’t want, bacteria, hair or bed bugs.
Laptops – You can’t know how someone else treated it, they might have dropped it or spilled coffee on it, causing it to quickly break down
Ssee the entire 20-item list put together by Money Talks News on the Yahoo! Finance site and tell us what you think:
