Finding Cookbooks for Less (Frugal Friday)

- Today’s Frugal Friday is brought to you by Lynn from Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures  -
I love to collect cookbooks and I have quite a collection. Some of my cookbooks I have purchased new, some have been given to me as gifts, but many of my cookbooks are ones that I have purchased used. In fact, some of my most used cookbooks are ones that I purchased for only a dollar or two.
My favorite places to find used cookbooks are garage sales, thrift stores, library sales, and used book sales.
I have been the most successful at used book sales. There are several in my area, and I often find books for fifty cents to dollar and magazines for ten cents each. I recently went to a used book sale and came away with all of this for thirteen dollars!
See that large book in the middle? That is a very large old Gourmet magazine cookbook that I paid one dollar for. It was worth going to the sale for that book alone.
What is your favorite why to find cookbooks inexpensively?
