Sometimes, asking is all it takes. I saw one last pair of those Ugg type boots
at Target, in my youngest daughter’s size. She really wanted a pair but I didn’twant to spend the $20 when she didn’t need them. These were thrown in a 75% off
bin but had no price tag on them. I doubted they were part of that sale, but
decided to ask at the cash register. The kid looked at them, looked at theslippers I bought that WERE marked down and asked how did $2 sound for the
boots? I snatched those babies right up. My daughter, who is 11, was SOO excited
and has barely worn any other shoes in the three weeks since we got her theFuggs (my kid’s word for fake uggs LOL).
Gosh, I am not cheap, but I DO love a good bargain :]

Probably a good third of my grocerypurchases are markdown items. Our Krogerhere does it pretty well; IÃ¢Â€Â™vebefriended several of the employees, too J
If I see that something will be out of date in the next 3days, IÃ¢Â€Â™ll ask
them to mark it down. IÃ¢Â€Â™ve never had them tellme no. That goes forproduce, meat and dairy. There is anotherKroger about 20 minutes away that
marks all milk down 5 days before expiration(gallons for $1 and Ã‚Â½ gal for 50
cents!) I donÃ¢Â€Â™t always getout there in time to pick it up but will stockup when I can catch it. Seems more stores would be willing to recoup a little
money instead of throwingit all out, IMHO.
My advice is to always ask for a reducedprice. What harm can it do? The worstthing that will happen isthey will say no.
Does any one else do that too love to see how many people buy orangetagged food?
