    I've walked out on deals (cars mostly) when they couldn't get the interest rate where I wanted it. They'll usually call me back in a couple days and say that their finance guy found me a 'better' deal, lol! My poor DH won't hardly go buy a car with me anymore. That 'do-do' would pay sticker price for a car if I wasn't with him!

    I never pay retail. I can't stand it. I'm retailphobic. I'd rather go without, or make it myself lol, and that reminds me I forgot to get toilet paper....ugh....missed it for $3 a 12 pack with coupons and rebate for Cottonelle. Crap! Literally.

    That's super cheap! Crap is right!

    I went grocery shopping today, and every time I go I am shocked at the prices. The smallest jar of mayo, store brand even, was over $3. Stuff like that is amazing to me.

    I only buy that for my mother and stick up at $1.50 a jar for Kraft. I am an avid couponer and rebate seeker. I refuse to pay exhorbitant prices for over processed garbage "food" anyway, much less something I'll wipe my rear with and toss in the trash lol

    I'm terrible when it comes to toilet paper. Can't walk past a special offer on those. I remember about 2 years ago, just after we came here, we were out road tripping, exploring a bit. We stopped at a convenience store for a cool drink and a bit to eat… Or that was the plan anyway. I ended up buying about 50 toilet rolls because they had them on at a very good price :hide
