So which one are you?
Now you are a bargain hunter extraordinaire. You know where and when to get the most money off and are not seduced by a deal for the sake of it. You save hundreds, nay thousands every year with your skill so are to be admired. However, once in a while, treat yourself and buy something you want right there and then – you deserve it.
You have some serious bargain hunting skills and your friends and family can learn from you. But you do get a bit carried away at times and may not be all that popular. Hounding shop managers for sale dates, complaining in restaurants or asking friends what’s on the menu when you come to stay, won’t have people smiling when they see you.
Erratic. That’s what you are. One minute, you have stocked up on a years worth of baked beans, but the next you are buying £2 broccoli from Waitrose. Do a taste test! The 49p broccoli from Aldi tastes the same. Staying on the bargain hunting straight and narrow is a challenge for you. Maybe a high-pressured job or lots of kids prevent you from saving more money. You have it in you, but must try harder!
Either you are minted or need to get with the programme. You love luxury and the finer things in life. If you even did a little bit of bargain hunting, you could have even more nice things. Go on spoil yourself, get a loyalty card and visit an outlet village.
