Yard sales, junk stores, flea markets. Sometimes it takes a lot of time to hunt down the right items, but it is wonderful when you find great items for next to nothing. And speaking of nothing, don't over look dumpster diving. We American's only throw away the best. :wink: Of course there is also Freecycle. http://www.freecycle.org/ People list stuff they no longer want, but don't want to take to the dump or junk store. If you stay on top of it, you can get some really cool stuff for free.
