How thrifty are you?

With all the economic crisis we are facing right now being a thrifty one is the best solution in order to surpass this crisis. I have watched from a television (though i cant remember well what program is that) the thriftiest man on earth. He would ask for the free catchup in all fast food he went (so he would not buy a bottled one). He would take all the free taste he could have in the streets, malls and every where he went to. That makes a thrifty one. But as for me, i am being a thrifty by recycling left over foods, buying all the necessity and avoiding the luxurious items that would not be any useful for me. I turn off the monitor every time I have to do something away from the computer (to save electricity). ^-^ As for you how thrifty are you? do you what the thriftiest man on earth will do.

well, i am thrifty for the main reason that i do not have much to spend but if i were rich, i think i would be lavish, so i guess that's why i still don't have enough money right now. where did you see that show? that's not being thrifty, that's being a miser or being stingy. i wouldn't go to that length. even if i have to eat sayote every meal

Like to think i'm pretty thrify with the way I approach things concerning money. My parents never had much in the way of money so it has taught me to stretch it as much as I can and save whenever possible. Like you I turn things off when i'm not using them, switch lights off when I leave rooms and try and find the cheapest possible ways of doing or getting hold of something. I often use shopbot sites and cashback sites have proven very useful when it comes to making purchases.

I wasn't too thrifty until I found out my hubby lost his job. I'm working being better though I do turn off the monitor when I'm away from the computer and all lights are off if we are not in that room. I still need to work on being better though.
