This is the traditional monthly Thrift & Bargain Dumpsterâ„¢.

A fitting place for discussing rejects and leftovers spotted while thrifting and bargain hunting. If you please: cast those items in the T&B-Dumpster!

Add items you left wherever you were sniffing around. Don't fill the dumpster with truckloads of Monopolies, Trivial Somethings and other regular leftovers. But rather add peculiar items, items that looked as if the cat dragged them in or items that caught your eye in some other special way.
Regular stuff accompanied by a good story is obviously also worth listing. As a guideline, take this into consideration: "Do the thrifters want to know about this?"

This list is also well suited to discuss those should-I-go-back-for-it items. Feedback you will get, from either end of the scale, from 'how could you, you amateur!' to 'best decision you ever made, you are the King!'

In the description, try to mention the state the game was in, the asking price, the location and other details worth knowing about. Oh... and please close the lid behind you. Thanks.

Last month's T&B-Dumpster:
Wear protective gear before opening and be prepared to fend off any scattering rats.
Unwanted Rejects - Thrift/Bargain Finds Left Behind: October 2011


Our GeekGuild:
Please mind the stacks of games. Don't mention the musty smell and try not to sneeze.
The Ancient and Loyal Order of Thrifters thanks you.

$5.99 at GW, looked complete and mostly unpunched. The market for these appears to have dropped a lot, didn't feel like messing with it.

$4.99 at Savers (it's on a hangtab if anyone goes looking).

Trying to be careful about what I buy, and as much as I'd like to have this to add to my 3M stack I know I won't have a need to play 3 or 4 player mancala anytime soon. I also know I'll see a copy of this again sometime, likely for less than five dollars.

Still, was hard to walk away. The girl on the cover is super cute.

Loved Mad magazine as a kid, tempted by this. But I don't need it. And one of the die was missing. And someone had scribbled on the box top a bit, doodling over some of the faces. I passed. $2.99 at Thrift City.

Missing just a few of the grey side benches (or are they walls). Everything else looked complete. $2.99 at Thrift City.

Wow, the quality on this game is really sharp. But it's a little kid's memory game, and I don't need it. Missing the instructions, but all the bits look new. $2.99 at Thrift City.

Left this one behind at Texas Thrift. I'm just not a chit/war-game person. $1.07, didn't inventory it, but I took a peek inside and it was punched and bagged.

$1.99 @ GW - I have TUF so wasn't sure about getting this. At least it's small. Might have purchased if it had been 1/2 price.

Box is beat up, and bottom has severe water damage and some mold.

Left behind unless there is a market for the phone itself.. then I may be persuaded to go back and gets it.

Was debating picking this up since it was unpunched, but it's just on the edge of what I'd buy to resell. Unless somebody wants to make me a really nice trade it'll stay for somebody else.

Left behind for $4.99

Found at Half-Price Books in Frisco, TX. The box was in great condition, but was missing all the figures. They hadn't priced it yet (and were unaware the figures were missing), so I left it behind.

Missing the instructions, but otherwise complete and in good shape. $2.99 at the Goodwill on Speedway. Looked like an interesting kids game, but I have so many of them already and just recently got a few more.

I left behind a copy of Homestar-Opoly at the Goodwill in Bartlett, IL for $3.99.

I had a good laugh at the idea of buying such valuable assets as Strongbadia, the rights to the Stinkoman 20X6 video game, and any one of Strong Bad's crappy computers, but I couldn't justify spending $3.99 on it. Maybe if they would have included some custom Homestar Runner pawns I could have justified picking it up for that price.
