ClickHole Will Tell You What Kind of Shopper You Are

According to our favorite satire site, we're "incredibly smart shoppers."

If you don't already read ClickHole, you should. The Onion's satirical take on viral content is always on point, and yesterday the editors published a quiz that hits pretty close to home.

Aiming to find out whether or not you're a "smart consumer," ClickHole's quiz is full of ridiculous — but not entirely off-the-mark — statements about the hoops we savvy savers go through to get a deal. Case in point: "I buy all of my sleds in the summer because that is when you can get really good deals on sleds." I mean, that's just good advice!

Take the quiz here, and find out if you're smart shopper, or a "sucker for bad deals."

Apparently I am a sucker for bad deals...
Ha Ha! I checked off "I'm the reason why Black Friday starts earlier every year" or something to that effect, but it's not quite accurate. Black Friday only works if it has something you're looking for, has the price you're willing to pay, & you buy it then. My husband price compares large ticket items & many of the items have been bought then, but he does his homework & researches certain brands that he's thinking about buying.

I've tried to follow some of the advice I've seen given here (some of it's good, some of it not, & some irrelevant to me) and/or elsewhere such as purchasing winter boots after the New Year. I don't remember the exact month, but every time I wait, the boots I like are always sold out in my size. Sometimes it ends up working out in my favor because when I read other people's reviews, I end up being glad that I didn't immediately buy them. Of course I'm also finicky so I've missed out on a pair of boots that I really wanted, but I keep looking for a pair.
