    IBM Model M, or one of the newer versions made by Unicomp

    Not money saving, but these are the best keyboards.

    I have always been a fan of cherry keyboards & mice. They seem to do the job reliably and last. Not too noisy either! I do stick with wired though as find the bluetooth ones are not so reliable and the mouse in particular can be juddery.

    Yes, I have five from the 1980s and 1990s, all ex-corporate.  Bought them more than 20 years ago when few had cottoned on to how good they were and none of them cost me more than three quid.

    I bought a new Corsair K70 recently with cherry MX blue clicky switches, which has a nice feel and a USB connector, but still not as good as the buckling springs in the Model M.
