Estate sales are the perfect places to begin looking for a discount lawn tool. Besides usually being in a great condition or sometimes even new condition you can easily get them for a portion of what you would normally pay for them brand new. To find estate sales you should look in your local classified section of the newspaper or special sites online that advertise for these type of sales.
Thrift stores and outlet stores are other good places to consider to find these. Outlet stores will get unsold merchandise from other stores such as hardware stores as well as other places that sell garden items. The ones you will find at thrift stores are usually used but they are almost always in great condition with a lot of usage left in them. The best part is they are usually very inexpensive, so you will be getting a great deal on them.
Yard sales are also worth looking at when you are looking to find discount garden tools. Yard sales are usually held over the weekend and many people will put up signs or put ads in the local newspaper.
Another good idea for finding quality garden items at a cheaper price is to consider doing a swap with a friend, coworker or other type of acquaintance. This works well if you have unwanted items they may want. You could also put up "wanted" signs around your neighborhood or in a newspaper. Be sure to specify what type you want and what price range you want to stay in.
An online auction site is another place to consider when you are shopping for these. You can type in what type you want as well as what you are willing to spend. Just be sure to consider the shipping cost you will have to pay.
Lastly look at stores in off seasons to find discount garden tools. This works great if you do not need the tool immediately. During the later Fall and Winter months you can find garden tools sometimes up to 90% off! Take advantage of these sales and you will get the tools you need at the prices you can afford!
