Save Money on Homewares by Shopping Smartly at Op Shops

How Much Can You Save? $10 to $50 on individual homewares and appliances

Have you ever considered becoming a regular at your local op shop? There are some great advantages of dropping into your local op shop every couple of weeks or so.

When you do, you’ll develop a relationship with the volunteers. You can share with them what you’re looking for and they can keep an eye out so that the next time  you drop in, they can direct you to items of interest.

When you arrive in the store, look around in all the nooks and crannies of the store. Get really familiar with the homewares section. This section can be a real gold mine, depending on where you live.

Particularly in up-and-coming areas, op shops often have some of the latest homeware items at better than bargain-basement pricing.

Don’t be surprised if some of the items are in their original packaging and look like new.
Special tip: Before you buy anything electrical at the op shop, test the item by plugging it in at the store to ensure it works. The clerks are usually very helpful if you want to check an item to see if it’s in working order. Also, verify your op shop’s return policy before buying any housewares.

Check out the homewares for sale at your local op shop. You’ll be pleased by the selections as well as the pricing. Save big bucks by shopping for homewares at your neighborhood op shop!
