I’m not a junk-store junk-seller.
But I am a junk store junk-buyer.
And, at least in the last five years, that has led me to shop at a few places that sell auto parts for the very things I buy.
In fact, in those five years alone, I’ve spent $5,000 on auto parts from places like Kmart, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and Target.
I have no idea how I got here, but it’s a pretty good bet that, for some reason, these places have been the go-to place for junk-selling in America.
Why, then, should you care about junk-buying from the junk-shop, auto parts store, or auto parts dealer?
As a rule, junk-shops sell only the junk you need, and auto parts shops don’t care how much you need them.
Junk-shopping is a relatively low-risk activity, as the cost of getting the parts you need is generally far below the price you’d pay to repair or replace the parts.
And if you want the best deals on auto repairs and parts, go to a junk shop.
And don’t be surprised if the salesperson is a good deal.
Junk is the new oil.
The big auto parts manufacturers are getting rich off of junk-loading parts for less money than they’re paying you for your car.
So, why do I keep going to the junk shop and buying auto parts at a fraction of the price?
It’s partly because, in the age of the online shopping frenzy, it’s easier than ever to find the parts that will make your car work.
But it’s also partly because I like seeing the prices I pay go down.
If I want the parts I need, I want them for less.
Junk salespeople don’t even have to know I’m buying auto repair.
If you know the parts and the manufacturer, you can order them directly from the site, for less than a dollar.
That means you can buy the parts yourself, at a great price.
And that means I’m paying less, which is why I think it’s more important to shop online.
I also like knowing that the parts cost less.
If the parts are really cheap, you’ll be more likely to save money by buying them at the local dealer instead of online.
And I like to know that the people who work at the places I shop are really nice.
I think they have good jobs, and they know how to take care of their customers.
So I’ve been shopping at some auto parts stores for a while, and I like the way the shop looks and the prices.
I like that I can browse the catalog, see the price, and find a place that sells exactly what I need.
But as soon as I go into the shop, I have to ask, What do you actually need?
I need some sort of safety belt.
I need an air filter.
I want a headlight.
I don’t really need a new engine, or a new air conditioning, or an upgraded transmission, or even a new brake system.
But the parts, the parts to be had, are all available.
It’s not that I have too many choices; it’s that I’m shopping in the right place.
I’ve read reviews on other websites, and some are really good.
Others are just awful.
But that’s the way it’s always been.
Most auto parts dealers sell parts that are cheap enough that they’re worth a couple of hundred bucks, so if I need something for a car that’s worth less than $1,000, the dealer will sell it for less that the price I pay.
I might not like the price that the dealer is offering, but that’s no reason to go into that store to find out.
I just want to know what the dealer has to offer.
The prices at the junk stores are usually pretty good.
And sometimes, the price at the dealers is even better.
For example, the cheapest part I ever bought was a gas tank, for $60.
I paid $150 for the gas tank.
I went to the dealer to get it, and the guy at the counter told me he was a junk dealer.
I walked away feeling like I had to pay more than I thought I would.
But, the guy was good enough to tell me that I’d get a better deal at the next junk-marketplace, and he’d give me the same price as he had at the original dealer.
He was right.
In the end, I spent $1 on a gas line and a new valve.
That’s a $40 savings.
And the dealer told me that they were going to have a better price than I’d pay at the dealer.
That was true, and it was good.
The dealer was right;
