Ever find a good deal, that's so good, that you don't want to tell anyone, for fear there may not be enough for you?

True confessions...tell us your frugalista secrets ;). You don't have to name names if you are saving a deal for yourself :)

***raising hand***Normally if I find a good deal, or freebie, I tell everyone. There have been times though, that I make sure I get my limit first. There have been times I have avoided telling my local peeps for fear that good deal would run out. My most recent is a certain website I get curriculum for sooooo cheap that I'm afraid to tell my fellow homeschool moms, because I'm afraid I won't be able to get the things I'm looking for, hahaha!

 I usually tell everyone because I want them to be able to get it, too. I've never seen a deal that I thought would run out before I got what I wanted.

I tell them all no matter what.  I have been irritated as heck over shelf-clearing aholes though.  I may buy 4 chickens when they go on sale for $1.07/pound, but I don't clear the place out, dang!  Yeah, I may buy 6 boxes of cereal when I find a good deal, but I refuse to be so selfish that I would take them all!

I love to share a great deal...but sometimes ;). Like recently I got a tip on a store that had eggs by the dozen for 50 cents. I did share, but I just wanted to be sure I was able to get some, lol!

Well, one is local (but I tell everyone, because they won't be running out) it's a monthly book sale, adult books and text books/curriculum is $1 each! And children's books, and that is a loose classification because I've seen Harry potter and stuff like that in there too, is $10 for a full grocery bag full...as many as you can fit. Last month I got 85 books for $20. It's a huge warehouse! I get so excited leading up to that sale!

The other is a website...you may know of it. Lol. Shipping is always free, doesn't matter if you spend $2 or $1000+ all free. I bought a few hundred dollars worth of books last week for $30.
