My Goals with this Blog...

Are to document my experiences with various income streams and programs in my quest to becoming a full time freelancer working from home. I plan to list my current 'eggs' and to post the things that have and haven't worked for me.

Galoo.com

I am always on the hunt for bargains. Whether it be coupons or a store card (like a Food Lion), a discount store like the Dollar Tree, or thrift stores, I’m on it. Or Craigslist, or Freecycle, or heck even online places such as ebay and Amazon. All offer deals and discounts for items either new or reasonably used.

But one day I saw this - Say what you want at the price you want for products and services at Galoo.com. Now what is Galoo.com? Well this place is like a flea market but one, it’s online, and two, for new and rather expensive items. This place lets you basically haggle for products with a price you set.

You go in with your asking price for an item, and a retailer comes in and if they agree, sell you the item at your asking price. It’s a rather novel idea. I assume you can’t just ask for stuff for free, or an absurdly low amount. But going by the testimonials people have walked away with items at half price. I may check this place out a bit more. It is assumed you can request anything and even any service. That alone makes this rather neat.
