Just how cheap are YOU?!

I was watching The Tyra Show a few days ago, and they had a thing on there called "Princess of Cheap" they crowned the cheapest of 4 people. The winner was crowned because she goes to stores like Goodwill where they sell clothes by the pound, buys about 50lbs of clothes for like $10.00, then brings them to another factory where they buy clothes from you. She makes enough money to buy herself a cute outfit or two for a couple nights out. So it made me think.. How cheap are you? I find some people will do anything to save even just a few dollars. I'm not cheap when it comes to my clothes. I like to buy things I know are going to last me a long time so I don't have to go shopping for almost another year. Which is nice, right? Not having to shop too often. I'm not very cheap though. I like to buy the best of things while it's on sale. I don't buy things for regular price anymore. And when I buy things that are on sale, I buy lots. Just because I know when they're not on sale. I'll most likely run out of whatever it is I need. So, I admit..I'm not a cheap person, but it does save me quite a bit of money! I shop with coupons too. You'd be amazed at how many coupons I bring with me when I shop. My sister does the same thing. She has stacks of them in her purse. How far do you go to save money?

I do buy some clothes on cheap stores, like clothes that i wear inside the house. I think that for me is called, being practical. I buy clothes that are of good quality, but not to the extent that it would almost cost me. For example, I would buy good things that are not that expensive but as the same as those signatured ones. Well she's a good example of how to make ends meet, afterall, the money she makes are also for her own good...

I sometimes shop at Goodwill and resale shops. You can often find name brand clothes in good shape, even with the tags on. I also don't buy alot of clothes or extras. Most of my money goes for my kids.
