Cheap LEDs in Bulk?

I use Light Emitting Diodes for nearly every project I make. I have been looking as my receipts for the last six months at Radioshack, and found that I've purchased over 400 LEDs, and I have none remaining. I obviously go through them quite quick. Therefore, I am looking for a reliable website that sells LEDs in bulk for cheap. It is, quite obviously, expensive to buy 20 packs of LEDs from Radioshack (I've spent nearly $100), so I'd like to buy in bulk (which usually results in lower prices). Thanks in advance!

Bulk/Cheap Electrical Components

I am growing tired of spending large amounts of money on few quantities of components. Are there any [trusted] sources to buy in bulk (for cheaper) from? I'd be more then happy to buy 1,000 LEDs for $20. That's fine with me. I'm currently spending about $2.00 on just 10 LEDs. Anything is an improvement. I'm trying to stay away from auction websites like eBay. Any suggestions are useful! Thanks!

Where to buy citrus peel in bulk?

Remember that orange peel cat litter that was briefly on the market about three years ago? The cats hated the stuff, but oh how it worked in the bunny's litter box. I want to buy orange peel in bulk, since the litter company appears to have gone under. But I don't want the fancy pants potpourri or medicinal or culinary stuff. The bunny won't come in direct contact with the litter, so such properties do not matter. Citrus peel + baking soda = best DIY bunny litter. Any suggestions of websites where I could order such citrus peel would be awesome. Thanks in advance!

Artistic project with bulk cd/ dvd cases?

Couldn't decide if this was more of an art question or a craft question... but... You know the ones... the clear cylindrical cases that encase the 50 count blank cds/ dvds? I've seen a few projects here and there, but most look pretty ugly/ college dorm-ish. Guess I'm hoping for some magical suggestions for something kind of artistic? Modern art-ish? Esthetically pleasing in some way? Just plain fun? Doesn't have to be practical at all if it's interesting enough. I've got quite a pile going if it helps the juices. Any suggestions gladly accepted!

Where can I get bulk synthetic hair?

I want to make a plushie My Little Pony and I'm going to need a good amount of hair to do it.

I want the colors to match the Friendship is Magical cartoon as closely as possible. The first one I do will be Fluttershy, so I'm looking for a light pink.

LED powered party

So me and some friends a month ago got together and threw a party together last minute. Well it was more then just a hit, people turned around and begged us for more. So now that we have cred for this "epic" party which really was just random shit tossed together in a house in an hours time. So this time around we are going to go all out and spend our budget fully. But my job is to do his house like my room: I only have LEDs for lights. But the LEDs I used for my room I bought at radio shack and thus paid top dollar for them. Which was fine, for my room, but a house? I need bulk. Bulk LEDs, bulk resistors, bulk wire. But that's only half the problem, I was told my deadline was the 23rd. Well even with this short time frame I still need some good bulk dealers. Does anyone have any good links to places that sell LEDs in bulk? I'm looking to spend around 50 bucks or so on the lights. As I do this project though I will either make an inscrutable out of it or the very least a slide show!*

How can I hole punch thin plastic page protectors in bulk? Regular punches don't work...?

Update: I found my answer, see comment below.  In short: I used a Carl Heavy Duty hollow-head Hole Puncher, and it works great! I've been using plastic page protectors (these, specifically) in bulk, say about 1000 a month.  However, I need them to be 8.5 x 8.5 and I also need to punch holes that are slightly off from the factory holes.  I'm basically using these as a cheaper alternative to 8x8 scrapbook page protectors (which are prohibitively expensive - say $1 a sheet or so). I've figured out how to quickly cut the pages (using a rotary cutter), and that works great.  However, I am still struggling to find a way to quickly & cleanly punch holes in these things.  The problem is that the plastic binds, stretches, and does not cut cleanly.  I need a very sharp & precise puncher to do this quickly, and I haven't found one yet. I've tried normal 3-hole punchers.  I can punch them one at a time, if I hit the punch hard, and occasionally it binds & sticks (since the plastic stretches instead of breaking and gets caught in the mechanism).  I've tried hand-held punches as well, same result.  Also, aligning each individual page is time consuming as well. The problem with paper hold punchers is that they're made for paper.  They're inaccurate, not sharp, but strong.  The cheap & heavy duty ones alike only differ in how much paper they can punch, but neither are sharp/accurate enough for thin plastic sheets.  Is there a high-quality razor-sharp & ultra-precise hold puncher out there?  I haven't seen any that look even close. I've tried holding them down & drilling them.  The plastic wraps around the drill bit and they rip to shreds. I also tried a leather punch, but the ones I got were much too dull - they just dented the plastic. The only thing that has had some success is a dremel 115 cutter bit.  That actually cuts into the plastic, and if I go carefully (eating a bit at a time) it'll go through a lot of sheets at once.  However, it's messy, takes a lot of setup, and leaves a very messy hole (all chewed up). Ideally, I'd love to line up 10 sheets or so, have a way to align them (a jig?), and then punch them all at once w/o any binding or sticking. Does anyone have any other ideas?  I've thought of melting a hole, but then the pages would all stick together.  I'm completely boggled - how can I do this?  What tool can I buy for this?  What method haven't I tried? Thanks guys!  Any suggestions are appreciated.

On iPhone iOS 10 Safari how do you bulk erase ALL bookmarks not in a subfolder w/o having to reset the whole phone?

I'm using Safari on the iPhone 6 with iOS 10 and am looking for a way to erase ALL bookmarks (and only the bookmarks) that are not in a subfolder, without having to reset the whole phone, or having to delete or reset the rest of the data on the iPhone or other applications. Just Safari. Over the past few years I evidently accumulated several thousand bookmarks on Safari on my iPhone.  I never created any folders, so they are all directly in the top level "Favorites". I can find no buttons in Safari to bulk move them all into a subfolder or delete them, the only way I have found so far is to go into edit mode and individually delete each one by tapping the red minus sign, which takes forever.  Especially if you have like 8000 bookmarks.  WTF. I looked it up on the Web and all I'm seeing are older threads saying that to clear all your bookmarks in bulk, you have to reset the data for your entire iPhone.  That would be a nightmare, as I have settings and data for hundreds of other apps and e-mail that I cannot afford to lose or redo. I don't have the countless hours that would be needed to back up my phone, wipe it, and then restore it. I also found a couple of 3rd party tools that claimed to be able to wipe out the bookmarks, but in the details they all seem to be variants of the above wiping out the phone, the only difference being that these tools just use their own method to back up and restore the phone - it's still the same time consuming and invasive kludge. As a workaround I tried turning on iCloud to sync iOS Safari bookmarks to the browsers on my Windows 10 PC, hoping if I then delete them on the PC, that iCloud will delete them from Safari on my iPhone. I turned on iCloud syncing for Safari on my iPhone, and I turned on iCloud syncing for my browser on my PC (I actually tried it for several browsers - IE, Chrome AND Firefox). After a few days(!) all the bookmarks from my iPhone eventually appeared in the bookmarks on my PC, but when then tried deleting or editing the bookmarks in my browsers, the changes did NOT appear on the iPhone. Rather, any changes I made to the bookmarks on my PC were overwritten by what's on the iPhone the next time iCloud synced.  In fact, I started to see many duplicates appearing in my PC's bookmarks, and the folders and bookmarks were all out of order.  What's more, any date information that was preserved for each bookmark on my PC was reset to the date/time of sync.  I often go to my Favorites folder in Windows and sort by Date Modified, so now that is gone.  WTF. But back to the main question, how do you bulk clear out all the bookmarks in Safari on the iPhone without affecting any other apps or settings on the device?  It would be nice if Apple supported the concept of a "Select All" button in iOS (this would be useful in lots of places!) As is I am ready to just quit using Safari and find another browser (alas not Chrome because it just crashes constantly since iOS 10).  Any help appreciated.
