In my previous post, I mentioned figuring out what I want to buy early helped. In short, it let me wait longer for the right price. There is another reason why figuring it out early helps. It also means I may be able to order it for much less directly from China.
It’s surprising how many products on sale you can find for a fraction the price on AliExpress.com. AliExpress is kind of like a Chinese Amazon. You can find virtually anything there. And it’s CHEAP. The catch? You often have to wait for about a month before you get your order.
Since 2013, we have another alternative. You probably encountered it already. It’s called Wish, and it is American. Similarly to AliExpress, you can find almost anything you can think of there (and something you would never think of!). And similarly, it’s dirt cheap and takes up to a month to ship. If you use my link above, both you and I will receive money in credit.
At some point I’ll highlight some of the more useful products I found on AliExpress. So stay tuned! Oh, and feel free to share your finds in the comments section.
I may get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.
