Question:Have you had to fight your way through the sale rack?

I've been a frugal shopper since way before the term "recessionista" became popularity, and I used to find my journey to the back of the store to find the sale rack was a lonely one, but always rewarding. This year I've found a lot more company not only at the sale racks, but at some of my favorite thrift stores. I was worried that this would affect my finds, but happily I was wrong. It seems stores have more to offer these days and the thrift stores have gotten more interesting. Have you noticed extra company in the bargain basement?
