yes. we all like money and that is why we are here also. We want to save money all the time but i dont like to bargain at all. I remember those days when my mom used to bargainin fromt of me and i would always tell her that mom he is here to earn also. And in reply i would always get that "you are a kiddo .you wont understand". Aww i hated those comments but if in one go i get the bargain i ll accept but if it takes me long i ll pay the price.

i love a bargain. especially when its on kids clothes. i hate having to spend a ton of money on clothes when they either outgrow it really fast or destroy it with holes or spilling something on it.

Yes, I also really like to shop for bargains. I always feel really good when I can take advantage of really great deals and save money. I find that if I take the time to really search for the good bargains, I can buy a lot more for the same price that I might have only bought one or two things with otherwise.

I absolutly adore a bargain! I recently went to the mall and bought a purse, a wallet, a coin purse and a t-shirt for less than 25.00$! Seventy-five percent off sales make my life complete. Except the occasional ninety percent off sales at Cartlon Cards but those are a very rare jewel to find. When bargain hunting I tend to find myself looking for something i "may want to need" which is not always good. Aside from my astronomical find the other day I have bought many a t-shirt at 3/10$ or 2/10$ and once even found a pair of jeans for 15.00$ that were regular 30.00$. Boy, do i ever love a sale.

I enjoy finding a bargain. It's especially nice with a growing child. My daughter likes new shoes. I found what I thought was a nice pair of brown tennis shoes. She loves them. They almost look like dress shoes. Anyway as most people with children will know kids shoes are really expensive most of the time. This particular pair I found $6. Wow, I call that a bargain.

I love a bargain, and will always try to save a penny. That's why my wife calls me a cheap skate.

Its two sides to the coin here. If you can't bargain you know the price and what you're getting and you know better how to spend. If you are bargaining nothing is definite and so everything is uncertain, including the dispensation of your money. Traders are really supposed to bargain and the costumer is supposed to be getting good value depending on the trader's ability. How much of that actually happens is anybody's guess.

I like to get bargains [in the sense that we get good value for money at times but I hate bargaining.I prefer a shop where the quality is assured and there is a fixed price. I can never bargain. I n our place many people bargain with vegetable vendors but this is one of my pethates.

Yes I too love to bargain provided I really want it and will really buy it. But wont bargain if it will make a loss for the seller as in gerneral I bargain with the street vendors and the like.

I do like to bargain a lot. My girlfriend calls me "King of Bargains" because everytime we go shopping and haggling is possible, I haggle to my heart's desire. I think that it is important to do this nowadays because things are now very expensive. So if you really want the best buy, bargaining and haggling should be in your list of skills.

I agree, there's nothing better than getting a bargain. But at the same time, I'm sometimes prone (though I don't do it as often as I used to, thankfully) to buying things that I don't need, nor want just because they're on sale. That's not good :(
