I purchased a template once for $10 in order to use some of the tools needed to build something for a family friend. I was a wonderful learning experience as I was able to take certain sections apart and put them back together for my purposes OR in the cases where the original did not have the “best practices” in mind, I was able to recognize these from my own experience and code them in a “cleaner” manner (such as consolidating several css components into one declaration, or cleaning up css related to background images with rgba’s in lieu of a separate class for overlays. That kind of thing. I think HTML Boilerplates and inexpensive templates are extremely useful wonderful tools.
