(BPT) - Although everyone loves a bargain, they are often very hard to find. Usually, the best time to find a bargain is when a product is out of favor with buyers. In retailing, when an item is the wrong color, style or size, it is thrown into the bargain bin. Its price is then successively marked down until the product is finally cleared out. Astute buyers willing to take a chance on an unwanted item may discover that they snagged a great deal when it returns to favor the next season.

the Editor” in The Record some time ago. After reading it, I felt
it an excellent letter and that the information should be shared
with the good readers of the Lodi News-Sentinel. The letter covered
a 30-year period regarding things that caused the burst in the
housing bubble. After verifying the information in the letter, I
wanted to give a brief history of why the housing bubble burst and

"multi-national" corporations (no allegiance" with "free"
