While it's so easy to just jump on Amazon or run to Barnes and Noble to buy the newest release, it definitely pays to wait it out and search those massive bookshelves at the local thrift shop. They suck me in every time.
We buy probably 99% of our books second hand and it saves us SO much money!
Whether I buy them garage sale-ing, thrifting or used online, it's so much cheaper than buying them brand new. And while I may not have a book right when it comes out, we have such a good stash to choose from that I'm never without something to read.
Here are just a few of our fantastic book finds:
[thrifted: Left Behind for kids, almost the entire series]
[thrifted: my favorite books in the world- Reader's Digest books Complete DIY Manual, Fix It Yourself Manual, and Back to Basics]
What great books have you found second hand??
