Reasons for not negotiating are all false!
Think of a sale or purchase that you've got coming up. Make a list of every reason why you might not negotiate. You might include:
Not enough time
Now go through the list and think about how every single one is a false reason!
Here is some help on some of them:

Situation not negotiable - yeah right! Apart from beans at Tescos, they always are
Bloke too scary - be nice to him when negotiating. Blame yourself for being too poor. Wear running shoes. Or imagine him in just pants, or on the toilet.
Woman too scary - OK you've got me there.
Fear of losing the purchase - you can't, as long as you are a) nice and don't get thrown out and b) prepared to crumble and pay the original asking price if you have to.
I can afford it - so??
It's a bargain - would you like it to be even more of a bargain?
Already reduced = they are keen to sell it + they probably have authority to cut prices.
So: you can do it!
