So I just had the greatest find in my history of thrifting. I spent more than I've ever spent as well but I'd say it was worth it...
Started the day at a bunch of thrifts, finding nothing. Hit a Play n Trade and found this though:
Hogs of War (disc only, printed cover): $19.99
Dokapon 2 Cross Version: $2.99
Bionic Commando (GBC): $4.99
Sonic Triple Troulbe and Sonic Chaos: FREE (all handheld loose games were b2g2)
Thought that would be it for my day, was happy enough with getting Hogs of War. Then I stopped into one last Goodwill. Initially I only found 3 things I wanted:
Sonic Heroes: (PS2) $2.99
Deathrow (Xbox): $2.99
Sid Meier's Pirates (Xbox): $2.99
Was happy enough with that, just when I was about to head out a guy walks out of the back carrying a cardboard box filled with some game boy boxed games I could see. I immediately followed and when he got to the case up front I was there and got first dibs. PERFECT timing. All of the Gamecube/PS2 games were $2.99. All of the boxed Game Boy//Game Boy Color/Game Boy Advance were $4.99. The boxed GBA SP was $19.99. All are complete except for Mario and Luigi which is missing the manual but has the rest of the paperwork.
The initial 3 and the other 4 I'm keeping as I didn't have them.
Monster Rancher 4
Mario Party 4
Mario Party 7 (w/ mic)
Sonic Adventure 2 Battle
These 6 below are for sale, I already had them. All complete. Feel free to offer if interested.
Gauntlet Dark Legacy
Star Fox Assault
Super Smash Bros Melee
Phantasy Star Online Episode 1 & 2
Mario Kart Double Dash
These 7 I'm keeping the games, but the boxes/manuals/inserts are all up for grabs. I don't collect CIB:
Harvest Moon GB
Dragon Warrior 1 & II
Legend of Zelda LTTP
Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga
Tactics Ogre the Knights of Lodis
These 5 I already had and are completely for sale.
Metroid Zero Mission
Zelda Oracle of Seasons
Golden Sun the Dark Age (even has the map!)
Gameboy Advance SP 001 Cobalt Blue
I'm ball parking the total value at about 785.00... not bad, lol, spent 115.00. A lot for a goodwill trip but I'll make it back. Can't really trade on this one sadly, getting married in a month and need the money so sales only. Offers can be made until tomorrow, after that these go on eBay except for what I'm keeping.

Quite possibly my best deal ever today...
I went garage saleing this morning with $30.00 in my pocket. I ended up having to hit an ATM because I got this all for $80.00. $70.00 at one sale and $10.00 at another, almost everything was in the big one. They also had an NES with about 20 more games, some more paper, an advantage and a power pad for $40.00 but the rest of the games were common so I just picked what I wanted. That was also a good price, but I was already spending enough. I estimated the worth of this at about $500.00, give or take a few dollars. A lot of it will be for sale, but a lot of it I needed as well.
They also had a PSP with 5 games (all launch games, must have bought it and never bought more games), a few common PS2 titles, a bunch of other common PS1 titles, and about 5 more GC sports games. Still, I got the best stuff for sure.
Jungle Green N64 w/ expansion pack and with 4 controllers (various colors, all good sticks).
N64 Controller Extension Cable
Playstation Controller Extension Cable (She just threw it in the bag)
N64 Storage Unit (12 game)
N64 Transfer Pack
Two N64 Memory Card Plus' (one in case)
