Secrets to saving on hockey accessories

The official thread to discuss all matters of saving $$$$ when it comes to hockey accessories and maybe equipment.

For example, one question I have is about the skate stone. Its some kind of material that looks easy to obtain. Has anyone ever used anything cheaper. Like actually obtain a large portion of the material its made from and make small pieces so you dont have to constantly buy one and what not.

Another is hockey wax. Can regular candle wax be good enough? Any other wax better to use but cheaper than the $10 for 1 piece of hockey wax you can buy at a pro shop or that new stupid coloring crayon of a wax their selling lol.

I look at companies like hockeymate? and they sell skate stones, helmet kits and what not and im wondering if there is any way to go around the crazy prices. Like helmet kit is about $10 bucks, maybe more. But go to a hardware store and buy a better screwdriver for under $5 or use one from ur garage lol. Screws, my dad has 10000000 but I also can obtain a handful of free ones at differ pro shops or buy a bucket of them at a hardware store for under $2.

Stuff like this boys!... and girls

I also was wondering if there is any company anyone has heard of where you can buy a huge amount of tape for the cheap. Its freakin tape. And best deals I find are like $10 for 3 pack. I am sure somewhere in Asia their is a company selling a box for $20 lol

Sorry if this came off weird, but I am sure we can all discuss the secrets behind saving money on equipment and accessories here. Lets try to be mature. Obviously posting something "put on your own visor and you save $10" wont get us anywhere.
