We like the advice offered in this video about shopping at thrift stores. We totally agree with ThriftyTiff’s advice about stuffed animals and over-priced clothes.
But then she surprised us with another idea — one we had never heard of before: Her tip on hunting down products with a lifetime guarantee. What a great money-saving idea.
She lists a few items that have lifetime warranties, but here are some others:
- Pampered Chef cookware
- Cutco cutlery
- Ross Reels fishing reels
- Pelican transport cases
- Briggs & Riley luggage
- JanSport backpacks
- Zippo lighters
That’s just a few of the companies that offer some sort of lifetime guarantee (check with the individual companies for more details) on their products. It might be hard to find such items at a yard sale or thrift store, but it wouldn’t be unheard of either.
Anyway, the ultimate idea here is that you find some of these items at a yard sale, haggle the seller down on the price, take it home, contact the company for a replacement and end up with a totally new item that you can keep or resell at a big profit.
(Know of any lifetime guarantees? List them in the comments below!)
