The Art of Haggling…a guest post by Hubby

This weekend Hubby and I took part in the ultimate American Labor Day pastime…we went mattress shopping.  A few months ago we decided to finally fill our empty guest room with a guest bed.  We have been to over 5 mattress stores and have done endless research of our own online so that we could make an intelligent purchase.  Guess what?!  Mattress shopping is about as confusing as it gets!  Buying our first home was easier!  But in the end we succeeded and got a fantastic deal due to Hubby’s and my team effort of haggling.   I never would have known about the art of haggling had I not learned it from Hubby and his family.  We have come to realize that most people think Haggling is only meant for flea markets and street stalls in Mexico.  Indeed, most of the world haggles and I know on our trips to India there are hardly ever any set prices because haggling is expected.
