My husband and I wanted a puzzle. We looked at the store and found nothing we were passionate about so it seemed kind of silly to pay full price. We went to a thrift store and found the following for $9 and some change. We even used a coupon - at a thrift store. Haha.We bought two 3-D puzzles (already finished the little one), two LotR games (played one - was a little dull, but we got our moneys worth), Munchkin, and Acquire. We like Munchkin so that was a super find. We aren't sure if we are going to keep Acquire, but I bought it because we looked so hard for that game for my father-in-law several years ago and ended up just buying him the new version. I can sell this game on eBay and get our $9 back (+ some) if we feel the need.
The most exciting thing about this is my husband went shopping with me and actually didn't hate it. I was browsing the baby clothes at the thrift store and he said "You didn't tell me we were here for baby clothes!" So I ditched that idea right away so it wouldn't ruin his trip. I like to see my husband be thrifty. It makes me happy and excited.
