Whether it’s gadgets like TV’s, smart speakers and cell phones or gear like fishing rods and sports equipment, the fact remains purchasing retail can be expensive and leave you displeased when it’s time to upgrade to something new shortly after your purchase. Markups on retail items are often between 50-500%. According to BusinessInsider.com, “[t]he reasons for steep markup prices depend on the product. It could be that the item is in high demand, is difficult to make, or holds a great amount of symbolic value.”

One way to purchase the items you love at reasonable prices is shopping resale for like-new quality at a fraction of the retail price. Quality gently used or resale items are appealing for more than price, quite often you can afford higher quality items with a smaller budget that will ultimately last longer.
