I love sale. As I have mentioned in one of my discussions... I started shopping for Christmas gift as early as January. Sale saves me a lot of money. I enjoy going to barn or yard sale or even the flea market because I see a lot of rare and unique stuff from there. I don't usually go for mall sale because there are lots of people there, except after Christmas season. I also enjoy midnight sale when I was still in the Philippines but hate the traffic. What about you? Do you like sale? What kind of bargain/sale do you usally go too? Why?

I love a bargin and like in particular the pound shops here in the UK. It is sometime amazing what you can pick up for just £1 so when we go into town we always go and look to see what there is. Sometimes there is not much but on the odd ocassion you can pick up really good stuff. I have bought scrapbook kits,card making supplies as well as good quality make up and bath products. Of course it is good to know about the different manufacturers and prices

Wow, we have the Dollar Tree here in the US. I love it too, I can buy a lot of things for only a dollar. It's a great deal.

i used to love the 3day sales at SM malls here in the Philippines but eventually i got tired of it (or is it because i got older and didn't actually need a lot? hmm).. anyway, i still love bargain hunting in Divisoria from time to time but mostly i just like mall hopping and trying to find some nicely-priced and unique items on the shelves..

Oh, I love sale also. I like go for anything bargain be it bags, shoes, clothes, furnitures, appliances, porcelains, gift items...anything as long as the quality is good and you've got value for your money. I also like to take advantage of special offers such as buy one, take one or coupons. We can save a lot from bargains and sales.

Coupons... they are really cool. Buy one take one... I love them. These are treats for shoppers like us. (Where you been? I was curious )

I love going to tj max or old Navy to shop for sale items. When they have a sale they really have one. I bought so much house clothes over the winter months. I have some nice ones that I could even wear out in the street. They are so comfy as well.

Yep I am a bargain hunter.. I look for places/shops that have on going sale. If I want to purchase something with depreciated value, I dont buy it immediately. I wait for the time it will be of sale, saves me a ton of money.

I wish my husband is like that too. He opts for internet shopping. He hates the store whatever season it is.

Yes, and I think it's fun. I am fascinated by the rare and unique items I find there, but I don't usually buy them when I dont think it will be useful to me.

Yes, I'm a bargain hunter. I love buying things that are cheap and useful. My mom too loves it. She brings vegetables every week at the cheapest rate from the vegetable-shop and she feels really happy then. I also accompany her many a times. Sale really gives me a happy feeling. Recently I bought some gifts for my niece from ZEE Maha-Sale(trademark) and she was really very happy and it gave me a good feeling. If things are good and cheap, it's not bad to bargain.
