My garage is full of stuff saved for the next project. At some point one
runs out of space. Or recollection that one bought 48 extra capacitors

Your local Fry's must be far or you got a serious gas guzzler there... My point is
that when there was a RadioShack on every corner you could get a part easy and with
minimum fuss (and only $0.30 in gas).
20 miles away at $3.50/gallon and 23 city mpg gets one roughly close to $8.
A RadioShack selling capacitors on every corner made more sense when
electronics devices were made from more components that could be
replaced individually using inexpensive equipment. It is more of a
specialty product now.
