As a general rule of life, buying things used saves money. In fact, aside from a house or a nice bottle of scotch, things generally get less expensive as they age.
Cell phones, computers, clothes and cars are all good examples of things people can buy used to save a significant amount of money versus buying new. Cars especially. Only in some kind of bizzaro world would buying a used car cost more than buying a new one.
If we’ve learned anything the last couple of years, though, it’s that bizarre just might become the new reality. Better get used to it.
