On a rare trip to the mall this weekend to purchase several gifts, I realized how uncomfortable I felt there. I have gotten so used to buying secondhand, that even department store clearance sales didn't fit the bill (pun intended). I also couldn't help but notice all the shopping bags others were carrying. (On that note, I refrained from taking a bag from each store where I purchased something, and instead nested all of the items in two sacks.) I have never really been a "shopper," although I do like browsing certain stores, and am always excited to find a genuine and practical bargain.
What about you--do you buy secondhand? If so, what? What don't/won't you buy used?
