    I comparison price (very often online before shopping in the stores or online) to get best prices.

    I get some things in off brands or generic but not everything. 

    I like resale stores for current in style and like new things

    I am careful with the lights and combining shopping trips and errands to save on gas

    I AM willing however to splurge on something pricier for better quality at times or if its something unique and special.

    I clip coupons and I shop on the sale rack and at the discount stores. Does that count as being thrifty? If I find something I need and it's not on sale, I usually will get it anyway.

    I buy almost all generic medicines, unless I have super awesome coupons.

    I try to be and am for the most part.

    Linda, that made me smile. I'd do squats for money as well. That's a funny way to look at it.

    Quoting LindaClement:

    We get money BACK for bottles --we pay the deposit in the first place. 

    We also pick up bottles and cans when we find them, which is 100% free money. That always feels thrifty.

    I also happily squat down to pick up even pennies ... I'm happy to be paid a penny to do one squat. Even happier when it's a quarter!

    Quoting TexasWife:

     I wish we got money for bottles. It stinks we don't We do the can thing though by selling it to the aluminum people.

    Quoting LindaClement:

    In some ways:

    I dry clothes on a clothesline all year 'round, whenever possible.

    I return bottles for the deposit instead of donating them

    I cook from scratch for a number of reasons, money being one of them

    I buy 2nd hand clothing (and gleefully accept hand-me-downs)
