Samsung 55inch UN55KU6500F 4K HDTV from Dell. I was going to pick one up at Target for $800 but Dell was throwing in a $300 giftcard if you paid their $900 price. Ill probably end up using that on a PS4 Pro which I wasnt actually planning on getting before!

Went to a really small thrift store that is usually closed when I drive by. I cant believe how much stuff they have crammed into that little space! I member last time I was in there the guy said the fire department told him to make more path ways..... That looks like it last about 3 months! There was 2 sports SNES games, all sorts of cables, controllers, misc Xbox/360/PS2/PS3/Wii games on the bookshelf. They had an Atari Flashback 2 in the box, 3 fatty PS2s, and 2 Wiis for "idk like $30 apiece". I pulled this stuff out of the box of randomness sitting by the shelf, he took $20 for it.

Wii RockBand drums and the wireless guitar dongle from Goodwill for $4.....once again no drumsticks, they never have the drumsticks!

I know what that feels like. I'm from DMV and in a popular city, video games are in demand. Congrats on the full time job. What job is it?

Library Assistant......I should probably buy a sweater that I wear all the time even when its hot and some thick black glasses so I can play the part!

I wish some games like that would slip onto the shelves around here just because the employee thought it was a VHS! I always glance through all the VHS's just to make sure.

You guys are killing me with those finds! I went out a couple hours on Saturday and there was nothing video game related. Clothes on clothes on clothes on clothes! Just got word today that I was picked for the fulltime position at work so probably very few Thurs/Fri sales for me anymore! Thats okay, I usually do better on Saturdays anyways.

..........nothing like that will probably ever be put out around here again sadly. The local stores are so into ShopGoodwill now its almost not worth going for game stuff. Theyll have open Target returned 360-current gen games in the case and maybe some PS1,PS2, Wii, PC games in the media section but thats it! 2 GWs even bumped up controllers to $6 apiece from $3 if theyre official brands.

Got off my butt and went out for a couple hours before I had to go to work. No oldschool games to be found sadly, I asked at every sale. One sale a lady had about 20 decent PS3 games in a tub for $4 apiece, the games I got below for $6 apiece, and some BluRays for $2 apiece. I left behind a Monopoly game and Rayman Legends. Gave her the $49 I had on me. MGS and Dishonored are sealed. She said "some lady offered me $2 apiece for those games at 7:05 this morning.....we opened at 7!"

Pokemon Go Plus, def worth the price when your work is also a Pokestop. I dont have to look at my phone every 4 mins now to check in. GS by my work had all theres claimed before the store even opened.

Picked these up for $4/$5 apiece at some store that calls itself "Flea Market". Its pretty much a small thrift store that rents sections to people and those people can decorate/sell stuff in that area. One booth had some Mario KNEX sets, other games, and about 40 Xbox/PS/PS2/Gamecube/DS/PC games. $5 is pretty much what each goes for so no hidden treasures. Everything is complete except the disc only WaveRace Blue Storm.

Yeah I wont be telling an amazing story of how I got this stuff for $10 or $20. The Wii games were $1 apiece and I asked about other games and he brought this out. Said we wanted to keep the system and 5 games that they still play (wonder what those were, didnt ask) and his Genesis stuff. $40 for the box but quality games in there.
