What was your deal of the year
I know that the New Year should be an opportunity for me to look forward, but I want to dwell on the past for a just a second. With all of the doom and gloom the 2009 economy brought us, there was a bright spot or two. For example, volunteerism was up and (less altruistically) savvy shoppers were able to snag some really great deals!
2009 was a good year if you were in the fortunate position of being able to buy a travel to Mexico (though the price drop was probably due in part to the Swine Flu epidemic). But there were plenty of deals smaller items too.
I am certain that my favorite discount retailer has been offering a bigger selection of designer label clothing than ever before. However, my deal of the year was actually found at the thrift store. I purchased a sterling silver necklace for $4. So, what was your the deal of the year?
