I had discovered auctions a couple of years ago. I quit going because I got tired of going alone. I now have an "auction buddy". I am not sure that is a good thing. Don't get me wrong. I am having a good time, but I am coming home with way too much stuff, most of it junk. When you find that one item you really want, some how they sell it with a ton of stuff you don't want. My house is becoming full again, so I have to resort to freecycle, recycle, Blujay, and ebay. When all else fails, there is always the trash can.
Not only are auctions fun and inexpensive, you can start your holiday shopping early. You can find many items that have never been opened. Your friends and family all collect something special and they don't care if it new or used. Do you want vintage furniture? Go to an auction. Just keep yourself budgeted and don't get carried away in the moment. Go early and get an idea of what you want and watch for it. Sometimes it will get mixed up with a lot of other things and you will miss buying it. Most of all, have a good time.
