Used to collect vinyl and it was nothing more than a large expense and a detriment on my already low-income life. If you're young and not making at least $20 an hour full-time then please don't give into meme hobbies that give you some consumer high that lasts for a week, before you end up throwing everything on a goddamn shelf and pulling it out a few times per year at best. I made the same mistake with guitars and guns too. The most important thing to do is create a fractional budget out of each paycheck you get and use that little amount to buy things you want piece by piece. Spending everything at once gets you nowhere in life. You have to be responsible and save some money.

This is why I'm a week shy of 23 and still living with my dad.

Buy an anti-static brush on amazon for $10, it is pretty necessary to get the small amounts of dust off the record right before you play it.

I know this can be contentious online but when I buy a really dirty record I wash it under my sink faucets with a very small amount of unscented dish soap. Then just use my fingers to spread the soap around, then making sure all the soap is off I set it out to dry. Works fantastically, I even wash new LPs with only water to take away any dust and static on the record.
Don't buy an expensive LP cleaner, huge waste of money and are only for fat married men with small penises. Honestly, fuck anyone who suggests you buy an LP cleaning rig.

Don't follow this advice. It is smart to invest in a cleaning system. Spin Clean is very good. But if you're broke, I recommend using a mixture of mostly distilled water and some 99% iso alcohol with an old Discwasher brush.

I fucking new someone like you would be waiting to say this.

How is a cleaning rig not the biggest money grab ever? It is literally cheap plastic made to get your LP wet with a cleaning solution. What is wrong with just holding the record in the center with your god given fingers and then using cleaning solution on the grooves? Cleaning rigs are just $100+ replacements for your hands.

>old discwasher BRUSH
sounds like something that would scratch the shit out of a record. Just use water and your fingers.

Ten years ago vinyl used to be affordable and you were able to find rare stuff for a decent price, but now everyone's jumped on the bandwagon. The regrets I have is not buying 20 dollar records back then because "too expensive", while you now see them go on ebay for five times that amount.
