Do you buy Used items? Or does it gross you out?

I'm not talking about your house or your car , I'm well aware that alot of us are FORCED into having no choice but used on those type of things.

I'm talking about smaller things like Used clothes , Used video games , Used instruments.

How do you feel about it?

Personally I'm REALLY grossed out by used things... If you buy a used shirt how do you know someone didn't like... die wearing it? If you buy a used game how do you know some kid didn't pick his nose all the time when touching it. Or what if you bought a used guitar that belonged to someone who lived in a haunted house or something? Maybe most of these scenarios are unrealistic , but it bothers me too much anyway.

Not to mention used items generally do show their wear & tear... or what about with used video games where they don't even have the box it originally came in anymore?

So take the poll and post a comment , whats your stance on used things?

    I only really buy used Video games. Which actually most come in their original cases...at least around here. And I plan to start cosplay more seriously once I get a job, and I will most likely go to thrift store to get bits of clothing for costumes, which you should always wash first, New or worn.

    And Really like someone had said, if it bothers you that much, buy some soap with the money you save.

    There is nothing wrong with it, so long as the items are still in good condition.

    I bought an entire dream cast system right before it went out and got the console and 40 games for less than $100 bucks! Who the hell cares if a nine year old kid or a 40 year old man traded it in. If your that grossed out because someone "touched" it....take the money you just saved and buy some friggin soap

    I don't buy used things, because most of the time it is a much better deal to just buy it new.

    There are items that I do purchase gently used (books, some tools, some types of camera equipment .. furniture .. things that I can take apart to incorporate into a sculpture project ... just have to be frugal (because I am SINGLE and yes, I do squeeze those pennies pretty hard too!) ...

    Just make sure you check the disk for scratches. Besides, it has longer warranty periods then new games so any issues are pretty easy to resolve.

    I buy used things, furniture, cars, tools and appliances because I love the thrill and joy of restoring them and because the older American made items are built of better materials and are so much sturdier than anything that comes from China, India, Brazil today. 90% of my furnishings are restored antiques Others are restored items I found in the alleys around my old home. My cook ware and place ware sets are all old cleaned up preowned items. I don't play video games very often so, used items are fine for me, Used CD's, and DVD's just because they are cheaper and many because they are no longer available new.

    One man garbage is another mans treasure.Everything has a use,and when one gets tired of it's use to them they sell it or give it away to others that can use it as well.
    Heck,there is thrift stores in Beverly Hills now,and the rich shop there.

    Well, I don't really care because they won't sell a destroyed used game so it's perfectly alright to play and even if it doesn't work you can just bring it back... and buy another one... I don't see the problem, but I've never had a problem with buying a pre-owned game.

    Buying used is the only way I can afford to have things I want. Have you never heard of cleaning?
