At least it was better than using it to buy cream crackers.  At mid afternoon,I stepped out of the house, heading for the market with my head held up high and straight, looking for a good bra merchant.

I personally do not buy second hand underwears ,so I opted for my ready made ones better called, The Aba Made Bras.  After walking round the market for an hour and some deadly minutes without any success,nearly cursing my fortune for giving me big breast and small waist,i resolved that the woman I saw ahead with an undies merchandise would be my last.... The rain I saw coming was not funny, so I approached her and the following conversation took place.

7 Life Saving Market Hacks For Ladies

Growing up back in the days, I watched my mother display the art of cutting cost before going to the market and I am pretty sure everyone has had such experiences with or without you ever noticing, little wonder our moms could spurn some magic in getting so much for little cost and still have Apriko to spend on something else.  Trust me, it's not different from our day as you can get a lot for little.

1.find out what day is the general market day at your location.
