This steal of a deal is a bit different, and I had my doubts going into it. Having gone and analyzed my haul, I can safely say it was money well spent.

Bulk Smash 2018 was a smallish charity event run by the folks of Southington CT's Bricks and Minifigs store. In most cases their prices are prohibitively high for me, but Bulk Smash was a $30 USD event to fill a beach toy bucket from their immense bulk Lego tables. It took me several hours across multiple days to sort what I got.

The event was three hours long, pre-register only, and they refilled the four main tables at the half way point. Good mix of old and new parts, either unsorted in the main tables, or in tote bins loosely organized by color or element type (tires, large plates, transparent, et cetera.) I feel I got more than my money's worth for terrain and modeling parts, and the only down side is I don't know when the next event will be, or where. You can sign up for an email newsletter, which is how I found out about this one, but they seem infrequent.

Mine's more of a regular buy. I got the Speed Champions McLaren Senna for about $12 at Target. Plenty of good decoration pieces, tons of newer, rare pieces, plenty of dark grey and black, and more. It had two padlock pieces, two Bad Robot Arm, a lot of the angled 1x2 slopes, lots of other angled tiles, even some clear orange and red pieces. It's not quite suitable for a SSC, but it's definitely worth the price. I spent about $0.06 per piece, as compared to the average $0.10, a price made better by the fact that a lot of the pieces have individual prices of over $0.10 on LEGO.com. So, yeah, good set both to build or to restock on your parts with.
