I am not a cheap person, but if I know there's something somewhere that will cost me very little, I have no problem going there to get it. I don't go out of my way to look for deals or anything, but if I know I can get something for significantly cheaper than another place, I will go to the place that has the same item for cheaper. And I don't mean a couple bucks cheaper, I mean significantly cheaper.
For example.. The Goodwill in my town often has Dual-Layer DVD+R packs for about $5, but if I go to Best Buy and get the same pack, it costs me $50. For reasons like that, I will hit up the Goodwill without question. I never knew they had good stuff at Goodwill, but apparently the Target in town donates things for whatever reason and these things are new, working items. I can thank my buddy for letting me know, cuz I always thought Goodwill only had used clothes and other crap I wouldn't want.
