Do you look for bargains when you shop, or pay full price?

Are you the kind of person that clips coupons, shops for bargains, etc. Do you buy something at regular price just for the convenience? I personally rarely pay full price for anything. I shop around, look for bargains and shop wholesale whenever possible. What are your shopping habits and why?

I try to look for things that are on sale in clothing stores or at a reasonable price. I haven't gone to a wholesale store or anything but I have used coupons before.

I shop at a store called Value Village for most of my clothes. It's a used clothing store where you can find great deals on gently used clothing and household goods. It's a lot of fun just looking through everything. I buy my household products wholesale from a catalog company that lets me shop online or by phone. That saves quite a bit of money as well.

You sound a lot like me. I used to love shopping, but time is money these days. I try to make time to look around when I can, but quite often I find myself just in and out quickly. I hate when that happens....LOL

I never pay full price for anything! I alway look for the deals and shop around. I do this because money is hard to come by, and what I do have I want to spend it wisely!

I look for bargains. If it's on sale I will buy it. That is if there is a need for it. I've heard of some people stocking up on things on sale, but I can't stock up on too many things. I'm afraid that they moght not get used.

I am definitely a bargain shopper. I think that even bargain prices are too high any more, though. I watched a lady on TV the other morning explain how she saves $5000 a year on groceries. It was kind of cool, but I don't think I'd have her patience.

I don't think I'd have the patience to do a lot of bargain hunting, so I go where I already know the prices are good!

If the lady was on the TODAY show then she was from the refund cents website I subscribe to. I haven't been able to save on groceries like that in quite awhile. However, mostly thanks to the refund cents webisite, I get tons of good deals on health and beauty products. I have enough toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine products, shampoo, conditioner, razors and much more to last for years. The subscribers alert eachother to many major deals. If a hot deal comes along, we try to post and help eachother out. The editor has a webpage to alert folks to deals also. I wouldn't be without my online subscription. It is only $4 for 3 months to try it out. You also can go many places on the site for free. If you like bargains, you might want to check it out. http://www.refundcents.com

Frugal is my nickname. I rarely buy anything full-price. When I enter a store the first place I head for is the Clearance Rack. I also shop at our local discount food stores, we have 2 in our town. I recently found Monistat powder which usually sells for $5-$6 for $1 in the discount store. I scarfed up the last 4. My husband doesn't like to shop these stores. Yesterday we were in the area of a Goodwill store. They have some great buys there. He refused to take me there. I will have to plan a venture of my own.

You'd love the store where I buy my household products! I get to shop at wholesale without buying in bulk. They deliver too, so I can take as long as I want to shop, then just send the order. If you'd like to know more just PM me and I'll give you the details.

I don't understand how a person can buy something at full price and find it much cheaper at another store down the road. I try to bargain shop anyway.

I always check the clearance racks first. you never know what you are going to find. Then I go to the sale racks, then I go to the regular priced racks.

I always shop the discount stores.It has to be something really special and hard to find for me to pay full price.Otherwise if it's not on sale,I don't need it.

i would usually pay full price. i hardly have time to look or wait for bargains. when i need something, i go directly to shops and pay as is, lucky if they are selling them for a lesser price.
