I think it may of begun when I saw my dad haggle at an electronic store. That night I was watching the Simpsons on our 40% off LG plasma television. Why ever pay full price I thought.
I have a slightly above average pay scale for the odd twenty something year old but even so I will fight tooth and nail for that discount.
I always wondered if with age my buying habits would change. I still don't have the heart to part with my cash for upscale designer brands. Fashion trends continually recycle. Is it ever worth paying a week's pay on something that may go out of style in the next season? Maybe finding "The One" item is like finding Mr./Mrs Right, as the infamous lyrics of Mr Buble "I just haven't met you yet..."
Have you found your everlasting love? "The one"? (partner or fashion must have :p)
