Let's buy some shoe- er, LEGOs!

Alright, guys, let's do this.

I'm planning on making a Bricklink order soon. This is something I've never done before, so I need tips and pointers and such. Which shops to shop from, pricing, etc.

Also, any helpful tips on pieces you find useful for building microspace, I'd love to hear you out, although always try to provide an example pic so I know what piece you're talking about.

Advice for Bricklink? Well, personally, shop at places with good inventory and decent prices, and try to make a few large orders rather than multiple small ones to reduce overall shipping costs. You probably shouldn't buy from any place that's on the other side of the continent or overseas, since shipping will be horrendous.

Really, though, there isn't much I can tell you about Bricklink. Just cross-reference prices, shop wisely and you'll do perfectly fine.
Were it that simple...

I go for the lowest prices and if I can't get that then I got for the place with the most of what I am looking for.

Here are screenshots of the last three orders I made not sure if it will help in some way but figured id throw them out.

Dude! You spent $12 on a severed hooker torso.
I suppose you can now say you've paid for a hooker.

Just wait until you have to pay for things other than Lego; you'll probably banhammer yourself if you're content with spending all that money on single pieces.

How do you get all this money anyway?

We just went over this in another thread after J+B tried to wall o' text'd us into submission.

Upon translation, it was revealed that J+B thinks he is the shit as far as LEGO goes and gets his kicks laughing at all of us thirteen year olds and our underfunded armies.

No, how do you get the money. There has to be some way you get the money in the first place to save it, otherwise I work for nothing.
