Do you bargain before buying any item while in shopping?

When you go to shopping, knowing the exact and logical price is the most difficult task. How do you know that the vendor is not making a huge profit by selling the item to you? If you are charged too much big amount than the actual price of an item, then how can you know that you are not falling a victim to the vendor's trap? I cannot trust the shopkeepers. Most of the time, it appears to me that the price the vendor is offering as the price, is much more than the actual and logical price. So I start bargaining with him to turn the price down. If I come successful in doing so, I become very pleased. Do you bargain with the shopkeeper when buying an item?

That is the only kind of shopping I do these days, I always wait and look for the best sales and prices on my favortie itmes and will only shop at those places with the best prices. I don't get to shop as much for this reason but I do save a lot more money then I ever used to.

If I am making a more expensive purchase I will use the internet to research products and prices. It is a great way to see who has what you need and how much they are charging for it. Many times I will see something at the store and really want it, but I tell myself to check out online if I can find it for a better price and 9 times out of 10 I can. I do bargain with vendors at the flea market..It is a bit fun like a game. Seeing how well I can bargain for the day I do know a lot of vendors there already put more on the price than they really need to sell if for to leave some room for the customer to bargain..
