Our HD here in Minnesota still puts the cutoffs in the sale
bin. I check on Sundays anytime I'm in the area, as they end
up cutting a lot more hardwood on Saturdays. This week I got a
couple of 6" red oak boards (26-28" long) for $1.01, and a
week ago I got just under a half sheet of 3/4" oak plywood for
$2.01. That was an odd one-- the sheet was cut to about 46",
and they were selling 3x4' precut sheets for $18.99 a couple
of aisles over.
