Before you buy, do you consider whether or not you could resell the product to recoup the costs? – @debtfree

@digerati – As for cutting healthcare costs… yes, eating healthy/following a healthy lifestyle helps but if you are sick or have a chronic condition you need to stay up to date with the doctor. The best savings my family has found is using a high deductible plan with our HSA. Instead of paying extra premiums we are spending our money on the services.

Favorite way to sell things: craigslist. To give things away free (which I do a lot) CL or Freecycle

When purchasing toys for my kids I consider the possibility of resell, especially when trying to decide between multiple items.

@waeqhswife Yes, and probably by the time you add up your deductible and lower premiums, you’re saving more than you would if you had to pay high premiums every month … whether or not you used your plan

I don’t consider the resell value, but I think about how long it will last in the long run!
