BRITAIN is becoming a nation of bargain hunters haggling in the high street and trawling car boot sales, a survey found.
More than a quarter quizzed thrashed out a better deal with sales staff.
Half turned to eBay and 22 per cent went to markets and boot sales.
Nearly a quarter shopped abroad for goods such as alcohol, the poll by Alliance and Leicester found. In all 22 per cent saw themselves as bargain hunter shoppers.
But 68 per cent said there were the sensible shopper like Princess Anne, doing their homework beforehand to spot a good deal.
Three per cent are wannabe shoppers who would like to shop around but don't have the time.
Four per cent are must-have shoppers like Victoria Beckham who buy on sight despite the price.
