I've been a bargain hunter from a young age, most likely inspired by my parents and getting dragged round various carboots and auctions at the weekends, I enjoyed it though, I come from a family of bargain hunters and here's a few key confessions of mine that I am sure many other bargain hunters also share.
Poundland is our favourite shop
This of course, is unlikely to be a surprise. Obviously if we love a bargain, we're going to love Poundland right? Our natural instinct is to head to poundland but the reality is that we may be actually able to get the same item elsewhere, savers for example, which brings me on to my second point.
If it's cheap enough, we will by it
We constantly unnecessarily by things we don't need simply because it's cheap. We don't need it, we aren't even sure if we actually want it but if it's less than a pound then why not, it must be a bargain.
We could open a shop with the amount of things we have
My garage is full of stuff, stuff from when I was a kid, my dads antiques, stuff I'd forgotten I ever even had. You couldn't fit a car in there. I've actually started selling some of these things through various apps, think it's about time I had a clear out.
We'll probably buy your birthday present in January
Yep. It's true, I've actually done this before. Not because I get really excited about birthdays but simply because there is a lot more savings to be had in mid-January than there is in September, it's just a fact, common sense.
We will annoy you
We'll find bargains and you wont understand how we keep managing to do it. It's like we have a specialist set of skills, maybe we're just ninjas.
So that's some of my confessions of being a bargain hunter although I'm sure there are many more, if you're a bargain hunter let me know in the comments one of your confessions (or tips) on bargain hunting.
