They know me, the shopkeepers know me now Q: Do females bargain more or men? A: Females Q: Why do you say so? A: because they shop a lot more Q: Is it that they have better market knowledge or is it the fact that they like arguing more? A: No no! it is because of their market knowledge.

However, the prices are increasing normally so the prices have gone up a little but not that much Q: So do you discuss your purchases with your friends and family? A: Yes I do.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
