Bought a Nintendo screw driver set years ago, one of my favorite purchases. I open any cartridge, controller, or system and clean them just because I have the tools to do so. So many items that appeared DOA ended up working/looking perfect after a good cleaning.

Went to a GW and Savers about an hour away.......sports games/$20 PS1. Closest GW was uneventful as usual, which I expected because they have an NES and a stack of games up on ShopGoodwill right now. The second GW I went to was a nice surprise, past on a $35 Xbox, some sports SNES/NES games, and a NES rf adapter. Got the NES games with cases and Zapper for $4 apiece, composite cables for $1 apiece, complete Pokemon Platinum for $20, and sealed Xbox One charge kit for $20.

Well I decided to give the thrifts a chance today since Ive barely been going......so much fail! 3 various completeness $20 PS1s.....even though they cant sell them when theyre marked $8, a filthy complete Xbox with broken pieces in the body for $20, a filthy complete Wii for $40, a silver slim PS2 with cables but no controller for $30, and the most shovelware/sports games Ive seen in awhile! There was also a system only pink DS Lite for $20 and a system only black GBASP for $15, bodies werent bad but their batteries werent charged and the screens had scratches.


I ended up getting 3 sealed Yak Baks for $1.50 apiece. All 3 need a new battery but I couldnt pass up that blast from the past.

Nothing at my Goodwill stores last night and today, but I found stuffs that might interests some local Cagers. I tried asking the manager there to part out Super Smash Bros and MarioKart 64 but mananger said "Nope" :( .




Torrance Goodwill (on Western) N64 Bundle $70 - comes with 2 controllers, rumble pack, all wires, 6 games (Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart 64, Goldeneye, etc.)

Carson Goodwill (on Avalon) - Bunch of Wii Storage Cases $10 each, DS Storage Cases $4 each



Doesnt that suck? Knowing that they didnt pay a penny for that stuff and they refused a sale? So much for being a "nonprofit" company amirite?!

HA I hate you guys and your finds! I almost decided to just sleep in but I ended up going out for 5 hours since it was my first Saturday morning off in almost 2 months. 


Heard I missed out on a few PS2s and Gamecubes (eh no biggie), and 2 system only NESs. Passed on PS1, PS2, PS3, Xbox, Wii, DS, GBA shovelware and a couple PS1s. "Thats the deal of the day"..........dirty ass Wii with dirty controllers and shovelware for $50. They had the case for Super Smash Bros Brawl marked $5 but no disc or booklet to be found (we checked inside the Wii). Most people said "no we dont have anything like that" or "we do but we still play that". I actually had a few people go inside and double check for once, but no dice! Had one lady say "we dont.....we actually had some guy drive by around 4am when we were setting up and asked about video games".......WHO THE FUUU GOES OUT AT 4AM?!

Well I hope he wasnt too shocked that people lowballed him at yardsales.........who asks $100 for a SNES at a freaking yardsale?! Its like the morons on Craigslist, if you want "what it goes for on Ebay" then PUT IT ON EBAY! 


With that said, I just drive around in a circle around town looking for sales and signs. Sometimes I go a few towns over if I decide to hit up the Goodwills as well. If theyre smart enough to put it on CL then theyre probably looking stuff up on Ebay. If its on CL or in the paper and mentions video games I dont even bother because I know someones already gonna be there.
