good deals at Goodwill

money
Went to Goodwill today to drop stuff off and they had a Lego-type building kit waiting for pricing in the dropoff area. AngryDandelion asked them if we could buy it and they said just wait 15 minutes for the price sticker and it was his.

So we waited, bought some gift wrap (.99/roll), an overnight bag, and then the kit, priced at $10. AD is putting it together. It's huge, 2450 pieces, seems fully intact, no pieces missing; it has lights and motors.

Mom looked it up on Amazon, and this is what the kit normally costs:

So, yeah, we got a good deal.

This beats the last good deal - I got a $125 Eddie Bauer leather jacket for $10. XD He still wasn't done assembling it after several hours yesterday. It's a huge project.

Nice timing! Am extremely jealous.

Thanks! Even used this is $150 on eBay. The instruction booklet alone is worth $10, and it had the instructions, the electronic parts, everything. We think someone may have bought it, opened it, decided this was too huge, and stuck it in the closet for a while until housecleaning came. It's the only thing we can think of for why such an expensive kit was at the donation dropoff.

Thanks! For $10, you can hardly go wrong - you can't even get a tiny Lego kit for $10 any more!

One mini-fig is $6 here! So even $10 for a mixed up incomplete kit would've been awesome!

It is! He's taking breaks from it, but I think it'll be at least another day to finish.
