Do you buy in bulk? Where do you buy your bolts? How much do they cost?

Use M6x1.0x20 as a reference.

I went to Lowe's to get a pair, and they were $0.56/bolt!!

They didn't offer any bulk packages, so I paid for what I needed and walked out.

Bolts can't be THAT expensive. Seeing how I always seem to be losing one here or there, I think buying in bulk might help.

the way u combat expensive nuts and bolts, well at least what i do is i'm a gearhead and i never throw away extras. i have a whole drawer in my toolbox dedicated to misc. nuts and bolts.
