    Just thought I would share, I went to pick up some flooring with my Stepdaughter and they had a TON of 6 ft long pallets, I took two and got 6, 6 ft long 2 x 4s. It was on of the flooring warehouses. Short ones are pretty easy to come by, but every piece of lumber I do not have to buy is good by me.
