Recently, we went to the local thrift store, and discovered that if you simply ask one of the workers how much it costs to fill a box with books, they'll let you buy it for $1!
Seriously???? I've bought books here tons of times, and had to weed out books because I was going over my self-imposed budget... when I could have bought so many more, IF I would have only asked for a box!
So I loaded up a box with some easy readers -- mostly from Scholastic, as well as some chapter books that looked intriguing for a little boy, AND some books with an audio recording (grouped in plastic bags).
So, have you found any great deals lately?
