Ok . . . I have a new addiction. I love books, anyway, but PaperBackSwap.com has me even more addicted to them.

Like many of you, I often find myself with extra books around the house that I will never read. Some of them I'm not even interested in, and can't figure out how I ended up with them. Well, as they say, "One man's junk is another man's treasure," and odds are that someone out there is really interested in that book I was never interested in.

PaperBackSwap.com is a COMPLETELY FREE way to unload those books you're trying to get rid of, and find the ones you've been dying to read. All you have to pay is the postage to send your books to the person who requests them. In exchange, other people pay the postage to send you the books you request. Follow? In the end, the cost balances out, and you end up with the books you REALLY want, instead of the ones you don't.

When I signed up, I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but I love it! I'm sold! You might have to wait a while for someone to post a book you're looking for, so that's the only down side. However, if you can curb you're impulse to buy it now, patience will pay off and you'll get that book you want. If you sign up, be sure to add me as a buddy (pala9801), so we can share books!

AND . . . don't forget to list me as the person who referred you!

Bargain Shopping Tenet #1: PATIENCE

For those of you who consider yourselves "bargain shoppers" or "treasure hunters", this first rule for bargain shopping is a no brainer. To be a successful bargain shopper, you must have patience.

The deal you are looking for will always come around—you just may have to wait for it.

This requires discipline and a willingness to not follow every impulse you may have. You may see the item you're looking for at a price you didn't want to pay, but because you want that item so badly you may be tempted to compromise your budget in order to get it. Don't listen to that small little voice that says, "Yes! Buy it now!" Resist the urge, and your self-discipline will eventually pay off.

Remember, this one little tip could save you LOTS of cash in the long run.

There's a reason they say, "Patience is a virtue," and that applies to bargain shopping too! That "it" you're trying to find will eventually go on sale, get marked down, get dropped off at your local thrift store, or auctioned off on E-bay.

Have patience, and it will come your way.

Bargain Log
Shopping Date: 11/30

Friday night, we visited the new Salvation Army Thrift Store just up the road. It's a nice store, and they have lots of stuff right now, since they just opened. I've been looking for a new/used comforter set for my in-law's new vacation place. We're in charge of decorating the room we use when we stay there, so I've been looking for ways to do that on a budget so it won't cost them a ton of money.

As I was perusing the store, I came across what looked like a really pretty comforter. As I approached it, I was hoping, "Please let it be a queen, and please let it be a good price!" It was indeed a queen, and it was marked at $35.99. The best part was . . . it was a Waverly brand, and it came with the pillow shams. And yes . . . it was REALLY pretty and in brand new condition. It had great loft and was the exact color scheme I was hoping to find. I excitedly added it to my cart, and thought, "Sweet!"

But, when I got to the counter to check out, the cashier asked what price it was marked at. I told her $35.99. To which she replied, "Oh, that should be $25.99!" To which I said, "Well, it's marked $35.99, but if you want to give it to us for $25.99, I won't stop you." So, she gave us $10 off!! Who knew you could ask for an even steeper discount at Salvation Army?!

Beautiful Waverly comforter & shams . . . $35.99
Cashier's discount . . . . $10.00
The thrill of finding an awesome comforter set for $25.99 for my in-laws on a budget . . . priceless!

And that's my latest greatest deal!
