cheap weights

so my birthdays coming up but what i need are at least 2 25lb plates for my ezcurlbar.
i was thinking about getting an olympic bar but it'd be too expensive

but what i'm asking is where can i find cheap weight plates, or better a cheap olympic bar with weights...

i've been to one store and the cheapest i can get is basically a dollar for every pound, so 2 25lb plates=50 bucks

anywhere i can get cheaper?

A kindergarden. Steal 2 small children. If you lived closer, I'd let you borrow mine, I have a ton just laying around in my basement.

yeah $1 per pound is about the cheapest i have ever found new aswell

try craigslist, i got a bench and 300 pounds of weight with a bar for 80 bucks, well worth it.

Yardsales or used sporting good stores can often times have very cheap weights. I got 2 90lb dumbbells for like a total of 25 bucks at a used sporting goods store, great deal.

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.
