Love hunting for bargains

When I go shopping I love to look for bargins and get the best value for money. My hubby often laughs and says that my purse never runs out of money as I'm so careful. But when we go shopping together he doesn't like shopping that much and will buy the first thing and not look around!! So the other day we spent £10 on a rucksack, but if we had gone into a few other shops we could have got one cheaper!! Makes me laughs so much.

I am a bargain hunter but I am also the type of person who doesn't like to shop much. So I am usually pretty quick to find what I want. I do spend longer shopping online though. And if I can make a wishlist, I'll often do that first, then later see what I still want. I used to be more frugal back when I made hardly any money, but now that I'm doing a bit better in life I must admit that I do splurge every so often.

I try to be very frugal, much more than my hubby. I do the food shopping and try to do it as cheap as possible and try and make as much as possible but it is lovely to splurge every now and again. We never ever go hungry so must be doing something right

I think lots of us will try to be cutting the food bill back in the new year 2013.

I love bargain hunting.I am a fan of thrift shopping.most of my clothes are from secondhand shops.I love wearing nice clothes from these stores.I even got designer items from these secondhand shops.I got designer items at dirt cheap prices.I can spend almost $10 in thrift shopping and go home with nice dresses or skirts.

I like to look around the second hand shops you can get some very good bargins and since most of them are charity shops you are helping out as well.

Hi Anne, I know men are totally different with women as far as shopping is concern...They don't like to roam around and look for the cheapest...They always want to get the stuff and then leave... I also love bargains and prefer to be alone when shopping because I can explore more without thinking that my company wants to go home already!

It is natural thing madam. A lady always wants to buy the cheaper ones and best one among a lot but sometimes confused about which to pick . That actually bothers me lot but men are opposite . but not all men. some men also keep searching for the cheapest ones. I also remember that one of our uncle in the colony used to go to weekly market at the evening time because at that time he will get the cheapet of the prices .So don't worry. Actually Men are of mars and women are from venus.

I know, he just hates shopping so much. I'm not that keen on shopping and will only go and look for something cheaper if I know or think I can do so, if not I just buy what I see.
