Day 318 ~ "S" is for SALE!!

"S" is for Sale... SALE... SALE!  What better word could I have thought of?  Maybe one or two.  But none that could put a smile on your face like [a good] Sale!

Tell me one person that doesn't like a good Sale?  Honestly... I can't think of one, can you?  Please!  Who doesn't like to save money?  They'd be crazy not to.  After all, we have...
your proverbial 20% off Sales, 50% off Sales, even 75% Sales to name a few, then... President's Day Sales, Valentine's Day Sales , St. Patrick's Day Sales, Easter Sales, Mother & Father's Day Sales, Grad Sales, 4th of July Sales, Memorial & Labor Day Sales, Back to School Sales, Halloween Sales, Thanksgiving & Christmas Sales too, not to mention Fall, Winter, Spring & Summer Sales, and two most popular are the Clearance and Going Out of Business Sales!!  

Or how about a White Sale, a Red Tag Sale or a Black Friday Sale, a Bake Sale, or even a Sidewalk Sale or a Patio Sale.  Here's a couple more ... Under New Management Sale or a Grand Opening Sale.  

We also have non-retailer Sales or For Sale by Owner, and some of my all time favorites...a Yard Sale, a Garage Sale, a Moving Sale, a Consignment Sale, and an Estate Sale.  

You could also find good sales at Swap Meets, Flea Markets and Pre-Owned Car lots too!  It's a USED CAR alright!  Don't try to  sugar coat It.  Car  salespersons will do anything to get the  sale!  wink, wink.

Oh I am so sure I probably missed a few (quite a few actually, I keep thinking of more as I write- I'll leave those for you to add to my list)... and not that I don't mind saving a pretty penny... but maybe if everything was priced where it should be to begin with then the retailers wouldn't have to spend so much on all these Sale Signs!  

I know that last comment was and is a little unrealistic.  Especially in this economy.  You can't blame a girl for trying, can you?  wink, wink. 

Seriously now... how many more Sales can you come up with?
Everyone lives by selling something.

Hi Carla! Sale happens to be my most favorite four-letter word. :)

Other than absolute necessities, I rarely buy something unless it's on sale and I don't often buy something I don't need just because it's on sale. Sales prices usually reflect the true value of something while regular prices are inflated.

I added myself to your followers to help you get closer to the magic 100.
