Where To Get The Cheapest Gym Mirrors?
Have you ever been to a house where they have the old slider closet doors with mirrors across them. These make some of the best gym mirrors and you can get them dirt cheap if you just find them.
Sometimes old trailer parks will have them or you can find them on craigslist. I have a friend who got some for free because the people were letting their house go and moving.
Other places include Habitat For Humanity. I have helped with a couple projects and they get rid of a lot of the things they don't need or re-do. This is a great place to start.
