Cold Turkey - A Thrifting Addict Muses After a Month Long Break
weekly thrift lists here on BGG for the first time. I was amazed at some of the great games people were finding so I started stopping by some of my local thrift shops to test my luck. Given that one of my first finds was the semi-rare and valuable Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel I quickly became an avid thrifter. From July 2007 to February 2008, I was an extremely active thrifter, often making several stops per day and contributing heavily to the weekly thrift lists.
However, for various reasons, which I will discuss in this list, I started losing the thrifting fire towards the end of February. I haven't totally quit thrifting, but I've been going much less recently and actually made no thrift purchases during the entire month of March. Part of that certainly stems from the fact that I was recently laid off and don't have a lot of disposal income (even for cheap thrifting games) but the reasons for my break are more than just monetary.
I want to specifically state that these are just my opinions and that I don't speak for anyone else on the thrift list. I'm going to organize this list into a group of pros and cons and would love to read comments from others.
