This post follows the same theme as Friday’s post regarding the concept of “used.” The word used, by definition, means that something has been previously owned or utilized. In some circumstances it makes sense to be wary of buying things that have already been used by others. Several news articles claim that cribs, car seats, bike helmets and mattresses – to name a few – are all best purchased in brand new condition to ensure quality and safety. While some of the items on these lists are up for debate to savvy shoppers, we wanted to highlight a few items that under any circumstance should probably not be purchased used (and we are 99.51% serious).
Unless you’re Buddy the Elf and it’s your first time in a world other than the North Pole, it is not likely that used chewing gum (also known as ABC, or Already Been Chewed, gum) is something you should be trying. It’s best to splurge and get yourself a fresh pack.
While you should probably steer clear of these used items, there are some things that you should definitely consider buying used – starting with equal2new networking hardware and phone equipment. Check out all the reasons why equal2new provides the quality and reliability you need for your business. When it’s done right, “used” isn’t always bad.
