Example. I picked all this up for £7.50 and it works great.

I don't have pictures but have been doing a bit of bargain hunting recently . Have been helping a friend of mine who is separating from her husband set up house . She left with a washing machine and wardrobe . We got a sofa from Ikea reduced from £350 to £130 as it had a cushion cover missing. Curtains £15 reduced from £60 from dunelm because it was old packaging . £20 lawnmower from cash converters currently retails for £93 in b&q. Lino for loo £5 off cut . American fridge freezer currently retailing £680 ex display for £450 . Just takes a bit of research and a lot of luck

No offence but if she can spend £450 on a fridge freezer then money isnt that important to her.

Fair point . The budget for fridge freezer was initially £250 but we were able to spend more because we saved in other areas . We had looked at second hand American ones but they were a similar price . You don't get much for £250 as I found out and I'm sure anyone who has been looking recently will tell you. I may have helped out with the purchase price with some stuff but that's up to me . Friends help each other out . The purpose of this thread was to talk about things you got at a bargain price . That's a bargain price .

To put things back on track, here's some of my recent carboot hauls:

No idea. Didn't think they had any CDs attached with them. Anyway, they were 40p and it's always useful to have the chords to 'Save a Prayer' to hand.

£1 each! I also had a nice chat with the guy about Dario Argento horror films, that was cool.

Great find. All those games are very good for that price. Annoying, I've been after a (reasonably priced) copy of 'Kingdom Hearts' for a while; it seems that despite everyone owning a copy back in the PS2 days, some kind of disc-based amnesty has seen them all traded in for copies of 'Fifa 08' and 'Just Dance.'

What surprises me, is there are quite a few games which should be super common have a fairly high asking price. Games like The Simpsons Hit and Run, The PS2 Spyro games, the Mario wii games and Crash Bandicoot: Wrath of Cortex (I was surprised to see the guy infront of me at Cex buy one for £15). Kingdom Hearts is the same. I'll probably pick up the DS Kingdom Hearts games at some point soon as well.

Nice PS1 and Tomb Raider haul. My Lara Croft diorama my favorite car boot thing ever. 50 or 75p I think I paid.

My latest 'crap haul' was 3 spares/repairs laptops for £40 delivered. No HDD/PSU, crap CPU single core celerons, upgrade cost c.£4 each to make them usable C2D machines. All working fine, just got to wait for the CPU's from china

My best pick up today:
http://i.imgur.com/da3tToF.jpg

£1.50 each (and they're not replica carts). I have the first and third Rune Factory games, the second has always eluded me, so this find was beyond fantastic.

Fuzzy Olga had a four for three special evening last Friday at our local. We started out with some rear end-sploshing, then had a really nice long slick Mickey. After a break and a glass of wine we ended a great evening off with a spot of familiation and a double oily reach around.

Pretty badcore evening, and since I had loads of Olga-points built up from previous visits the whole evening only cost £30! Cant post pics though the camera lens got too oily and the pics were too blurred to use, pity!

That diorama might be my old one. After I went to university and my mom did her routine spring cleaning, it seemed to disappear from my room. (_;)
