The Second Hand Economy – Earning and Saving With Kijiji

DISCLAIMER: This post is written in partnership with Kijiji in support of raising awareness about how the Second-Hand Economy can support parents who are looking for the best value for their family dollar. As with all content on this blog, opinions are completely my own.

Canadians are embracing the Second Hand Economy.

In its third annual Second Hand Economy Index, Kijiji revealed some surprising statistics:

  • $29 billion CAD was spent on second-hand goods in 2016
  • The average savings received in the second-hand economy was $843
  • The average earnings received in the second-hand economy was $1,037

These are just some of the facts that are proof points supporting our collective love of buying and selling gently-used goods.

I recently visited What She Said to discuss some of the report findings and to talk about how parents in particular can benefit from the savings and earnings through buying items online or through the Kijiji app. You can watch the full segment here:
