In today’s world, we pay the high price for almost everything we buy. But there are ways of paying a little cheaper the things that you want. Personally, I love to barter and save money on things that I desire. It’s very satisfying to be able to save a few bucks when I go shopping.
The art of haggling
Haggling, commonly known as bargaining, is an ancient tradition rooted in the Middle East. Contrary to popular beliefs, the art of haggling isn’t only reserved for markets or garage sales. Actually, you can save a lot of money on many things like insurance, travels, etc.
According to Wikipedia, here is the definition:
“Bargaining or haggling is a type of negotiation in which the buyer and seller of a good or service debate the price and exact nature of a transaction. If the bargaining produces agreement on terms, the transaction takes place.”
