Please follow this thread if you are into non gaming stuff too. A lot of the people that post here are very knowledgeable about a wide variety of items. I know I have learned a lot from other users and I thank them for sharing.

Don't know if it's the lack of finds or old age, but I've been sleeping in more often on Saturday mornings.  Also, after moving I realized I have way too much stuff already. 

 

Been slowly going through boxes of stuff trying to decide what to keep.  I think I'm going to do a combo of trade-ins and online sales to eliminate the bulk of what I have.  While packing I stopped counting at 14 NES systems.

Technically a facebook find, but got the stuff in the picture for $40.  Listing popped up yesterday for $180 so I ignored it.  I saw it again 4 hours later and at some point the guy lowered it to $40.  There were already 5 people in line for it.  I got really lucky and the guy wanted to get rid of it immediately, but everyone else needed to wait until morning for pickup.  The guy lived a few blocks from me so I picked up last night.

 

I'm hoping to get out to more yard sales this year.  I didn't go out at all in 2015.

$25. Not pictured Final Fantasy CIB and 4 crappy loose carts.

 

I see a lot of vets have retired from the Gsale forum.

Awesome find on the DW stuff! I still need to grab them for my collection. I had a pretty great find today as well that included not one but TWO copies of Gotcha Force for the Gamecube. I'll post later after my phone charges.

I think a lot of people have retired from CAG.  This site seems dead compared to 2-3 years ago.

Me included, I just chime in from time to time. Getting too old for this shit.

If I have another good score this year I'll come back and post it.

So here's my score from yesterday, picked up for $110. It was from an estate sale where the sellers were just trying to clean out their entire house, but it wasn't a professional outfit. I emailed ahead and new they Wii and DS stuff, but when I got there I found a box brimming with Gamecube stuff, too. I nearly lost it when I saw Gotcha Force in there, but then I opened the case and found that it was empty. I started going through the rest of the games and saw there were a few empty cases, but I figured I'd keep them with the box until I could look around the rest of the house. So I grabbed the box and start poking around and eventually found a teenager's room. I spotted a GBA game on the desk and started rooting around in there, where I found games for the empty DS cases. Then I saw a CD case waaaay in the back of a drawer, which turned out to Gotcha Force! Content that I had found the game I checked out. When I got home I was laying everything out for a pic, and that's when I noticed there were actually TWO copies of GF. So yeah, great pick up and I'm really psyched to try GF.

I didn't find many gaming items last year. I wonder if this year will be worse. Maybe more people are using Facebook or eBay for selling their games now...

Nice pickup on Gotcha Force. An incredibly fun game imo. I'm glad my brother picked it up a long time ago. And I'm really glad we didn't trade it during one of our Game Trade In "Purges"

 

It was really fun trying to collect all the Borgs, especially all the Transformers and Future Borgs. The Voice Acting is stupidly hilarious.

I'm guesstimating at least 20.  That's way too many.  I picked up virtually all of them in bundles just to get the games when they were still dirt cheap.

 

I'll see if I can keep a tally on the total number of each console I have before I start getting rid of them.

Last year it was hard to find good deals on video games, or games in general. I may make it a goal to leave at an earlier time but that may not help much since I'm stuck with just Saturday, I work 8-5 weekdays.

I didn't really go out garage saling until October and even then, I didn't really put much of an effort. 

 

But since I exercise every day in the morning now, I'll put a bigger effort.

Found some good soundtracks for a dollar each at the local indoor flea market: Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Trespass (The Ice Cube/Ice-T flick).

Sadly live in the DMV area and everyone knows what stuff cost or overprice.

Found some decent stuff last year, but 2014 and 2013 were better for me. No yard sales here yet.

It's been a while, since I've posted anything (there have been finds though). Here's the first finds of the year for me! I calc'ed everything and the prices summed up to $67 (not too hefty). I have no idea, why I"m so hyped to play that Mosquito game, lol?! I don't know much about toys but, $7 seemed reasonable for two boxed old MegaMan toys. Oh, I also found 3 PS3 Call of Duty games but, I think I left them in the car (TBH I don't really GaF about those)

Oh man, nice find on Mister Mosquito. I love finding crazy Japanese games in the wild.
