How to Save Money on Books

I love books, and I know I’m not the only one. I collect books like some people collect hockey cards. I have shelves full of books that are just waiting for me. Sometimes the bookstore is a dangerous place because buying books can get expensive.

How to Save Money on Books

I am at my weakest during a sale. I went to Chapters recently and they had tables full of books that were just $2 or $3 AND bonus Plum points of top of that! I couldn’t resist and left with an armful. Luckily, we have to travel at least 2 hours to get to the nearest Chapters, so that saves my wallet some.

If you love books like I do, you know the struggle is real!

How to Save Money on Books:

  • Thrift Store – While most people are trying to find a great fashion buy, I am heading straight to the book section. Last year I found a stack of Animorphs books – the collection was almost all there!
  • Ebay – Ebay is the perfect place to shop for hard to find, pre-owned books. My last book bought on Ebay was East by Edith Pattou. (Loved it!)
  • Yard Sales – Yard sales are a great place to find old paperback books that have been stashed away for way too long. A lot of yard sales have stacks of books that haven’t seen the light of day in years!
  • Second Hand Book Stores – These are becoming rarer by the year unfortunately, but we are lucky to have one in town. On Tuesday’s all books are just $2! The bookstore is run by Autism Resources Miramichi.
  • Library – If you don’t need to own the book, libraries are a great option and it’s entirely free! If the book you want to read isn’t in, just add your name to the wait list and find another gem while you wait.
