[sdiy] Suggestions for stocking parts bins?

I highly recommend looking for used electronics in a second hand store or 
even in recycling areas where they have "trading posts" you can find some 
cast-off radios and such that will yield up good parts. I hardly ever have 
to buy parts, and then it's usually just electrolytic capacitors. But keep 
in mind that I have been collecting electronics junk since about 1984.
