I need to think more on this. I'm a big thrift store person but maybe only get to them about once or twice a mong on average. When I go, I stock up. But maybe it would be more efficient and cheaper in the long run to do one big discount store like OUAC. Thanks for the idea. I'll give this some thought for sure.
