Ten things you shouldn't buy new

Liz Pulliam Weston, MSN Money: 10 things you shouldn't buy new.

Pretty good list:

  1. Books
  2. DVDs and CDs
  3. Toys
  4. Jewelry
  5. Sports equipment
  6. Timeshards
  7. Cars
  8. Software and games
  9. Office furniture
  10. Hand tools

She also notes exceptions, like hand-held power tools, which wear out fairly quickly (good to know!).
