I used to check out used clothing at thrift stores in my area but many of the clothes are even more expensive than new ones on sale. The ones that are cheaper are those I don't really want to wear. Besides that, my closets are currently full and have no room for more house clothes. When our utility vehicle's transmission counter gear broke recently, I had to browse online and offline suppliers to look for the best priced disassembled transmission parts that match our vehicle. I've checked out well known places for engine and auto parts and ended up buying in a surplus auto parts yard near our place. I think, it's a good idea to check these stores out so you'll have an idea where to look when the need arises.
