More on Haggling

Dear Mom,

I guess I just wanted to make it clear to you that I don’t always haggle. Sure, I love a bargain and cannot stand to pay full price for anything unless I’m really desperate in finding something that I need and time is running out. I have no problem paying full price for something if it is truly worth it. But there are some things that I just can’t seem to pay a high price for no matter how in love with it. I suppose that’s the value of something on either end—what one is willing to sell it for and what one is willing to pay.

I’ve had garage sales—and refuse to ever have them again because believe it or not, I’ve lost money having them—and I would be so irritated with folks when I would have a dime on something and they’d ask me if I’d take a nickel. Come on. Now that’s a professional haggler. I’m an apprentice haggler, only haggling when some serious haggling needs to be done.
