Everyone likes a bargain or a good deal, are you one of them?

Whenever I'm out at a yard sale or swap market, I try to find great deals on certain items. Most time I do, but when I shop at places like the furniture store or the car dealership, jewelry stores, places like that. I wonder if I got a good deal or not due to lack of knowledge. Today, I sold my old gold jewelry and I went to two places before I made a deal. I think I could have done better, I even asked for more and got it. Are you a bargain shopper, too?

I'm definitely a bargain shopper. I truly hate spending more money than I have to if I can help it. I prefer saving as much as I can on items even if it's only a few cents. Now, I'm not concerned about a penny or two here and there, I'm more concerned about 25 cents or more. If I truly can save that much on something then I'll work hard to do so. I keep in mind where all the great deals on items are and whenever I'm out shopping I'll make a trip to buy those items at the best price possible.

I'm a big fan of thrift and consignment stores for clothes and shoes. I also use my Speedy Rewards card whenever I buy gas and build up to getting fuel cards and such. I shop clearance any time I'm in a store as well. I got the most awesome dress on clearance once. It was a formal sequined sheath cocktail dress that was normally $250; I got it for $40. That's got to be my favorite deal of all time.
