I like bargains, but I will no longer buy something simply because the price is good. I am trying to avoid spending.
Bargains I have indulged in: a size 6 gold lame cocktail gown (I never go to cocktail parties; I have not been in a size 6 since I was a teenager)
BOGO for trash
Meal kits

I do if it is something we need.

When I need something if it can be found at a thrift store or Big Lots I will check there. I look for sales and check the sales ads. I also check clearance areas.

I love shopping at yard sales and thrift stores. I only buy things I can use. I just love the hunt.

I like that title... I think I'll adopt that, 'bargain hunter'. Sounds much better than hoarder, doesn't it?

Definitely, but it took me a while to learn (years ago) that if I don't really need it & have a plan for it, it isn't a bargain.
