Love & Money: Couples are saving thousands of dollars on their wedding day by buying used goods

Patty Angeles got the deal of a lifetime when she went shopping two years ago for secondhand furniture for her new apartment.

The 25-year-old from Austin, Texas picked up almost-new shelves — and a fiancé.

“We tell people we met on an app,” Angeles told MarketWatch.

That’s true, but not in the way most people think. Angeles and her husband-to-be Ben Vineyard made their match two years ago, not on Tinder IAC, -0.61% or Bumble, but on an OfferUp, an app that allows users within a five- and 30-mile radius of each other to buy and sell items like used furniture, appliances and clothing.
