Everyone Loves A Bargin....

Did that get your attention?
Well it does for me everytime...
But...
What exactly is a bargin?
For me  it is getting a good deal on what you are looking for...
It could be anything...
Food, clothing, furniture,electronics, going out for dinner...just to name a few.
So...you decide(in your mind)...
How much you are willing to pay for something...
Do you want it  NOW...
or
Do I wait patiently to see if it will be just a little less next time.
I know it is hard to wait sometimes...
But it may be well worth it...
Here is my recent example:
Shopping for a camera for my daughter for her birthday...
She had one picked out at Costco...
I looked at the price EVERYTIME I went in the store.
(Now...Costco has some perks...
We have Executive membership...
 we spend enough to pay for our membership
and usally get some money back...
which means...we get paid for shopping at Costco!)
So...the birthday is getting closer...
the camera has an instant rebate...
I get it cheaper than planned and before the birthday.
Yea!!!!
That is not the end of the story..
like I said, I look at the price everytime I go in the store.
2  weeks later...
I look at the price...it is $30 cheaper!
In the back of my mind...I think...
doesn't Costco have some policy...
that if a product is cheaper than
what you bought it for you can get it for that price.
So...
I ask...and yes...within 30 days of purchase!
Double yea!!!
SO...
sometimes it pays...
not to be in a hurry...
And check prices(especially on big items)
AND...
Look for rebates(instant are the best)...
and coupons(they are everywhere)...
BUT...
I will save coupons for another time...

Take care,
Mommy 2
P.S.  
I want to thank my Mom...
for planting the seeds a long time ago...
about getting more for your money...
by looking for bargins.

You have even influenced me, the anti shopper. I think the way you bargain shop is the best. You are so balanced and patient (Without the strike through:)

Could you buy me some new tummy muscles?
