I was in Goodwill yesterday and here is what I picked up:
Jillian 6 Week 6 Pack and One Week Shred (previously traded these away), Slim in 6 (also had and traded) Ashley Turner's Element Weight Loss Yoga and Shiva Rea's Yoga Shakti. They had a lot of titles including the New York City Ballet workout and TA Pregnancy Project set (for 6 bucks). I wanted to buy both of those even though I know I would NEVER use them so I stayed strong and put them back on the shelf.
Now I want to go check out other Goodwills in my area! I bought a new house this summer and I think I accidentally donated a big stack of dvds I had separated from the others. Additionally, I haven't worked out at home consistently since 2016 due to joining a gym and had gotten rid of many workouts during that time. Now that gyms are closed here I have returned to my collection. I am finding I need intermediate dvds! I lift moderately heavy to very heavy at the gym with my own very long rest periods and dvds are kicking my butt, lol.

Great finds! I'm sorry to hear you lost a box of dvds in your move. I've been seeing more and more dvds at Goodwill lately. I wonder if it's because people are moving to streaming or You Tube. Good luck in your search!

Thank you. I have a collection of storage totes and I was fairly sure I had put a big pile of dvds in it because making the decision to get rid of them or not was too stressful while moving. It was all my barre and Ellen Barretts along with some yoga, pilates, and my Toniques. While I never felt compelled to actually use those workout (hence the reason I had them separated from the main collection) finding them gone was pretty devastating. Our closing got pushed out 3 or 4 times and we ended up with just 3 days to move so those workouts were a casualty of that I'm afraid. I was especially sad to lose Ellen.
However I now have space for more workouts, lol.

Wow, Jeannine, those are some rare ones! I have seen Patricia Walden a few times but never Tracie Long or any of the barre ones.

Wow! That's a good find for $1.99. I still haven't used my set but that's a really good deal.

i agree - i was tempted, but DB has never appealed to me. i re-read the review on 2Lazy4Gym to make sure, though!

Those are really great finds! I havenít seen those in my Goodwills. The only Suzanne Bowens I see are 10MS. I did find a KCM and some Leslies.

I saw Tracie Long's The FIRM Maximum Body Shaping the other day at my local Goodwill store and was thinking of buying it just so a VFer could snag it from me... What a great workout classic (and I already have my own DVD of it).
