whenever the a shopping mall will have it's schedule sale, whether it's Christmas or their year end sale, lots of people are coming and i am one of them. I try to see some items which are on sales particularly clothes. i try to compare the original prices and the sale price, if it's affordable, i go for one, but sometimes i also find it expensive even if its already 50% sale. are you crazy of sales or bazaars?

I get excited over sample sales - I once scored a silk Nicole Miller dress priced at $600 for $30 and bragging rights. But in the mall, if I see something I want and I can afford it, I buy it - there's nothing worse than going back to get something when it's on sale and it's GONE - FOREVER - and I know there's someone else out there walking around in MY super cute dress/shoes/scarf/whatever.

since there are many people coming if there is a sale, then better we are more fast enough in order to get the things we want. hehehe. because if it''s on the others hand already, they will not let it go.

Most of the stuff i own were bought during sales... since if there is none... a lot of clothes, bags, shoes, household items can be quite expensive... so i usually just wait... there are a lot of mall in my area... and each has a sale once a year... so i try to save up before one comes... so that i can buy most of the things i need there...

I was working in a shoe store before. I discovered that most of the items which have discounts or almost lessen by 50% or below are those items that are nearly to expire. Some items also like bags and apparels, the store put them very high prices that even they give discounts up to 50%, they would still have a great profit.

yeah, I have noticed that in groceries, if the items is close to it's expiration, they will give discount on it. if the items is an old stock, they also give discounts for it. that's why some items on sale are still expensive and we the consumers think that we have save our money because of the 50% discount they give.

during Christmas,there are a lot of sales and bazaars sprouting around the metro.even if it's a sale on boutiques,I still prefer shopping in vintage and secondhand stores.I prefer having unique finds.I shop there merely as gift for myself.to buy gifts,I go in bazaars and flea markets for great unique gift items.

I think Mall sales are businessmen's strategy of drawing some consumers to one's mall. they say they'll have midnight sale but only to those selected items in which even if its up to 90% sale I wouldn't dare buy. But as I see some of my friends, they are easily attracted by mall sales but still end up buying those none sale products. It really is a strategy...
