Save. Every. Day. Different slot. And other tips.
I beat this game on the second try (to do it in one loop) and I enjoyed it so much more with a few tips:

- Save every day on a DIFFERENT slot, sometimes your mistakes compound like a night of binge drinking. Every shot is a regret waiting to happen. So are your purchase decisions.

- Don't always buy the most expensive stuff to sell, sometimes your customers are broke a$$ DlCKholes and I hate that little cu nt child with no money trying to buy hats and $hit. Buy a cheap book or hat on hand just for that turd. You get a feel for who wants what depending on the brilliance of your store and how enthusiastic people are on your purchase recommendations.

- You will get proggressive XP bumps as a merchant for guessing precisely what the price is that the customer is willing to buy at, but forget about XP bump when you're down on the wire two days before deadline, haggle like your dad will sell you in to prostitution if you don't win.

- You must take the risk and continue on to the next five levels in a dungeon if you want better loot, otherwise you may be stuck just playing the merchant game. You can probably win the whole game just merchanting.

- The rich blonde cu nt will buy at 137% cause she's a bag of DlCKS

- Cheap a$$ hoes in order of broke a$$ --> wadding money and throwing it at your face:
little pigtail cu nt (below value for mid-range items, you can go maybe 110 for cheaper), rival pixie hoe will almost always buy at 103, dungeon heroes (your outfitting them so don't be a cheapskate), disgruntled stay at home mom, old man who didn't save for retirement, really nice merchant guy who hilariously buys back stuff he sold you at 50% markup, and I have nothing bad to say about the handsome dudes that give you almost 130 everytime. I am likely missing some customers here and there but I'm writing this because I"m drunk, not cause I care.

- Sometimes buying "hot" items while hot is a good investment, only if you're certain you can sell them while they are still hot. Hoarding "cool" items for when they become miraculously short in supply is not always smart.

- Vending machines are of dubvious value and take up an entire table. People won't buy anything except heavily preserved cherries and other food stuffs, I hope they die of cancer from the formaldehyde.

I think that's it. I'm on new game+ and despite the rage against pigtails cu nt child customer, I really love this game.

(One last thing, the voice actress who sings the theme needs to be put out of her misery cause she can't hit the notes even if someone shoved a hot poker up her bumhole)
