I haunt the second hand stores in my area. Budget wise best bet for me. Takes a bit somtimes to get what i need or wont. I only go when i got the few dollars in my pocket. Its a game though. You see it you wont it get it. Because you go back for it chances it wont be there. Iv gotten my $5 percolater coffee pot i love. When you live n apartments that occassionally gets lots of bugs. Call me paranoid but im not liking the drip pot then lol i had one roaches in an out. My mom has sent me lots of brands new gadgets bless her. Iv gotten my pots , pans set $5 when i was able to stop being homless. 4 Plates $3, 2 bowls $1 2 coffee cups $1 silverware - knives $2 im still searching so with time i know i will find more.
