Overview

Forget fashionistas. Meet the bargainista. Annie Korzen is a thrifty woman with expensive tastes. Raised by an immigrant mother who reused tea bags, Annie learned early on how to be an economista.

In Bargain Junkie, Korzen shares her hilarious tales from the trenches—the garage sales, estate sales, thrift stores, rummage sales, and online auctions. Korzen haggles, scrimps, saves, and stretches her dollars and her imagination so she can afford to travel, dress well, and eat out whenever possible.

Whether she's getting a cardiovascular workout at the store, getting revenge on a yard sale con artist, or eating herself sick at the free green room buffet before appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Annie is the ultimate bargainista.
