Have you found any good deals lately? Care to share?

Yesterday I bought 10 bumGenius one size pocket diaper inserts (just the inserts) for $20! They were used, but in like new condition. Now for the really exciting part...A few months back, a friend gave me 10, size L/XL Fuzzibunz pocket diaper shells, for FREE. So I spent a totall of $20 on our size large diapers! and at $2 a piece for inserts, that's cheaper than nice prefolds! I'm so excited! I love a good deal!

This isn't store shopping, but it was a deal! I called U-Haul after getting the best online price I could find for our 26 foot moving truck, and simply asked if they had any other discounts or specials they could give me. He put me on hold, and came back with a 15% discount!!! ALWAYS ASK! It brought the total price down $200!!!!! I was thrilled!
I've always told my girls, It never hurts to ask. The worst thing they can say is no, but most of the time, it works! This goes for stores, too. I got Hunter ceiling fans once for the same price as the store brand ones because I asked why they cost more and what the difference was! He gave them to me for the lower price.

Even thrift stores will sometimes bargain with you if you ask. I have had them call the owner and ask if they're willing to take less on a larger item. I've had them give me a discount because the item had been there awhile and it was soon to be marked down anyway and it saved them the time and trouble.

Quite honestly, I haven't been shopping in ssssoooo long that I can't really remember anything

Up in the north, we will be coming into garage sale season, my favorite! My Grandpa in law calls it "Mari's Malls", because I get everything at garage sales, well almost everything. I get the kids clothes for all year, birthday gifts and Christmas gifts if I can find something for them. We are really big on appreciating what we have, so our kids always get one used gift at Christmas.

But I can't wait until May!
