My husband is the best bargain shopper. I was born without the shopping gene. When my pair of black flats wears out, I go out to buy another pair of black flats. I never go shopping for "fun" or "recreation." For me, it's a way to get something I need. It's definitely not fun. I do try to find the best price for whatever I need. It's just not intuitive with me.
My husband, however, has a great eye for a bargain. He reads the newspapers and inserts constantly. He knows what we need, so he's always looking for a good price on something. He even thinks ahead to find great bargains on things we'll need for a holiday or even next year.
Here's a great example. The girls go up one size each year. We know they will need new winter coats next year. He found a great deal at a nice department store near our house. Tonight we bought the girls $100 Columbia jackets for $29.99 each. And, even better, the jackets are sized at 7/8. We might actually get two years out of them.
Okay, that might be stretching it a bit, but one can always hope. All I know is I'm really glad he's has an eye for a good quality bargain.
