This is the traditional weekly thrift and bargain finds list.

These lists may start empty but as always: add your items.

Put in what you consider a bargain, tell us how much you paid and the place you got it from. Bargains can be thrift store finds or any second-hand purchases or discounted boardgames bought new. Don't forget to add your encounters with the Thrift Store Irritant Squad™, the Tape Monkeys™, and any other embellishments in order to make it even more interesting.

For a limited time only, why not try your First Citizen's
Thrift State Capitol Proposal Contest

Last Week's List
Check out the quality and quantity of last week's loot.

And then I found this for $1.99. I also picked up a 1999 version of NFL Monopoly for my son for $1.99. Definately worth the stop on my way home.

So, I tried to "retire" from thrifting, but it didn't take. The slide started when I stopped by half price books to buy some books for my staff...walked out with Java and Capitol instead.

But the real slide occured when I found a listing on Craigslist for a huge lot of strategy games. I emailed and offered an absurd amount, and they took it!

Picked up Ingenious on my way to pick them up.$4 at Crowded Closet. Complete but no insert.
