    Yes!  I feel I am - sometimes to an extreme (ex - the boys 3T bathing suits still fit in waist from last year...so they wore them today, all day...and C has a rash all over his inner thighs bc the netting was too tight!)  Bad mommy!

    I sell most of their things at Consignment shops and I'm a big sale shopper!

    I love shopping at thrift stores

    I get water at restaurants so I don't have to pay two dollars for a coke

    Yes, I print coupons, shop sales, buy bulk pkg of meat, by large pkg of things that are for more than one dinner. Clothes are from sales at outlets. I love dollar bag days at the thrift store, I usually get books and stuff that way. I drive everyone crazy cause I'm always shutting off lights, lol. I do laundry in the evening so the drier doesn't heat up the house, but in the winter I do it during the day and turn down the thermostat.

    I shop the best prices and can make a dollar stretch far. I don't buy cereal my husband likes because he will eat it all as a snack the first night.
