How Has The Bargain Bin Made You Happy?
Macklemore’s Thrift Shop song has led me to think about how bargain bins could be a saving-grace for many people. Although you won’t be playing your granddad’s games, you’ll be playing something pre-owned by someone else.
But not only pre-owned. Something that’s been drastically discounted, too.

Sometimes a few hidden gems lie in the metal cages of bargain bins. Although I am not particularly fond of secondhand technologies, I’ll admit that a few games I’ve found in bargain bins have been completely worth the overcoming of my irrational dislike of secondhand.
Some of my favourites include Forza (the relevant version for the period), and Rainbow Six: Vegas. I would have bought Forza, however the fact that it was lying in the bargain bin–no idea why–made it a lot sweeter. A R600 game dropped to R99 is always worth it.
Their mistake, my gain.
Rainbow Six is something I would have never bought, even at half price. I bought this years ago, and while I always loved the type of game, a high purchase price wasn’t justifiable to me. The bargain bin let me experience something I otherwise wouldn’t have.
Those are my two favourite bargain bin finds. And thinking back, I feel as if I should go back and have a peek at what’s available now days.
