When sold by the pound this stuff can be quite affordable. These things are never in a container, and sometimes they’re spread across multiple bins, but I will pick through and grab what I can, even if it means competing with other scroungers to get them.
The latest find was a bunch of Mindstorms NXT sensors (and tons of other bits and pieces). It’s kind of hard to judge prices on this stuff from FleaBay, but I suspect that the sale of one of these items should get me my $7 investment back.
I’m doing my best just to stay at home and not go to any thrift stores today. It’s tough, but I’ve got too much crap in the house already and too many incomplete projects...
