Had a thrift itch that I decided to scratch at a V(eterans) E(mpowerment) O(rganization) thrift store. I was blown away, there had to be 10+ HOB filters, most new in box, all different brands. There was a industrial air pump with 12 valve attachment, an unusual gravel vac by Cobalt, an Ehiem canister filter, a few internal filters, even a UV sterilizer . I usually only find the occasional stand or somebody's 10 gal that's almost always cracked.
for $11 with tax. Now I need to gather up some seldom worn clothes and coats, and drop them off. Keep that 'thrift store karma' good.
If success or failure of this planet and of human beings depended on how I am and what I do. How would I be? What would I do?
I pretty much only shop at thrift stores. Why pay full price when you can go there and sometimes find things with the tags still on it for $5.00 instead of $50.00.
I have scored some pretty sweet things too. Filters, lights, heaters, a $300 camera tripod for $20, a 200mm macro lens for $25, unicycle for $15. Complete suit that looks tailored made for me for three dollars, ~$400 pair of skis with brand new $300 boots - $40.
You just have to look everywhere and go to the odd parts of the store.

Nice I recently picked up two 20 longs and a 10G in decent shape, all hold water, just needed a simple cleaning for a total of $10 not long ago! They still had few more 10s and 3-5 other 20s! I probably could've picked them all up for $25 or less! Gotta love thrift stores!
