Do you love to shop? I do! I especially love finding great bargains. When I bargain shop, I compare it to deer hunting. Like a deer hunter goes out hoping to bring home a prize winning deer, I go out anxious to bring home the prize winning bargain! The deer hunter likes to hunt it, kill it, and then drag it home. I like to hunt the bargains, bag them, and drag them home! It gives me great pleasure to hunt the bargains and save money. I especially love finding those SUPER bargains. It seems like mid January is a great time to find those.
I wouldn’t consider buying something at a great price that we won’t use a bargain. To me, a bargain is finding items at a great price that I am going to be purchasing anyway. I keep a Birthday & Christmas list in my purse at all times. As I run into a great bargain, I can look at my list and see if I need it. If it will make a nice gift for someone on our list, then I am excited that I found it. I purchase it and then record it on my list. Some years I find a lot of great bargains and some years I don’t. I love knocking off part of my Christmas shopping a little at a time all year long.
Going to the stores and finding the bargains can be fun, but they are definitely harder to find that way. Shopping online makes bargain shopping so much easier! You can search for specific items or you can check out the clearance sections of your favorite sites.
Over Christmas, we found out that we will be getting our first baby Granddaughter in early June. I have been having so much fun looking for baby girl bargains! My husband, who came from a family of 4 boys and then we had 4 boys, doesn’t seem to understand that baby girls not only need adorable outfits, but they need the accessories to complete them. Maybe “need” isn’t the right word, but for this Mimi, I want her to have those things. Especially while she is too young to care what she wears! LOL! After buying for boys for so long, I can’t decide which is more fun, buying the bows or buying the sparkly shoes. Earlier this week I went shopping. I brought home a few articles of clothing, 3 pairs of sequin shoes, and numerous headbands sporting bows or flowers on them. I was so proud of my great bargain finds. I couldn’t wait to show my husband the adorable things I had found and then tell him the fantastic price I got them for. After all, if he brought home a deer, he would want to tell me all about the hunting process: where he went hunting, how he spotted the deer, how many points it was, and the way he got it home. I thought he would take as much interest in my baby girl bargain shopping, but I was wrong. He looked at all of it and said “She is only going to wear that stuff once and then she will outgrow it”. Thankfully, I knew he wasn’t in his right mind or he would have understood that I had saved us a boat load of money! LOL! I went on to explain to him that over the last 30 years, I had looked at and smelled more baseball gloves than most women ever will and that I always acted interested and excited about their purchases. He then came to his senses and asked me to show him my bargains again. This time when I did, he at least acted interested! He doesn’t have a clue what is in his future or how our little Scout is going to wrap him around her finger! I am sure in a few years that I will have to worry about him taking her shopping and buying whatever she wants. There won’t be any bargain shopping going on then! LOL! As for now, at least in my opinion, I will continue to look for those bargains that she can’t live without.
