How do I *actually* find cheap hotels and flights

I'm organising a "big" holiday for this Christmas. I've searched for cheap flights and hotels but there are a million different websites out there. How do I actually get the best value for money? Which websites would MeFites recommend? Are there any good (step-by-step?) guides available? [more inside]

Do other countries do this?

Cheap clothing worldwide: OK I see ads for very low dollar cost clothing which leads to short lifespans for those clothes and a never ending repeat cycle. Is this something other countries outside the US do for their garments? Do say German middle class parents buy cheap items for school or do they buy better grade products and buy them less often? Is the Wal-Mart/Ross/K-Mart junk clothing limited to the US? Same with cheap shoes, are the quality shoes found in German or Swiss or French stores better and therefore longer lived?

Cheap but bombproof II

A while back there was a thread regarding insanely overbuilt, reasonably-priced consumer goods "like an AK-47" such as the WRT54G and 90s Nokia phones. It was really useful to me, and by the looks of it it was to many other people. The sad thing is that it was closed in 2008, and lots of the products aren't on the market now or have had design changes. 4 years later, what products now deserve to sit in the cheap but bombproof category?
