Do you haggle with sellers at yard sales or with car dealers? You are not alone if you negotiate the sticker price! When we sell an item we hope to get top dollar; but when we buy we want rock bottom! My husband almost always makes an effort to talk down the selling price; and I distance myself from the conversation.
Apparently haggling is an age old dilemma, "It is good for nothing cries the buyer; but when he has gone his way, then he boasts (Proverbs 20:14 NKJ)." The penny pincher confidently walks away. He is proud of himself, believing he closed a big deal. I am not a haggler; but I am a bargain hunter and thrift stores and yard sales are happy hunting grounds. I may not bag a big one for the wall above the mantle; but delight in a bag sale to brighten up my wardrobe!
