Share your Bargains!

One of my favorite parts of the changing of the season, are all the amazing sales that happen. I love getting a bargain, and not to toot my own horn or anything but I am a master at negotiating. I've found that you can generally get really good deals, just by simply asking for them. For example, last month my husband needed four new tires, and I only wanted to spend $200 so I went into the tire place on a mission, guess what I spent $200 out the door.

This is a great thing to do when thrifting, know what you want and know what you want to pay. It will get you a long way I promise! Also bring Cash, you can get way better deals that way! Show the cash when you are negotiating, if you only want to spend $20 pull it out of your wallet why you are talking.

So what I want from you dear readers is to share your best bargain you have in your home!

Mine has got to be my coffee table! It was $15 at a thrift store, It was marked $20 but because they knew me, and I asked they gave it to me for $15. The funny thing is I get more questions about this simple and cheap coffee table.





What is your best bargain? Send me an email including a picture and the price you paid, and hey if you have any good bargain shopping tips pass them along! I will share all the fab entries on Friday!  

*San Diego readers= My favorite place to go for Vintage finds is The Estate Warehouse in Oceanside, Across the street is the best place Treasures by the Coast (price are higher but worth it) Also the Community Resource Center is having a huge Sale this coming weekend 17, 18th everything is 50% off
