9. Welcome to DU!! like you, thrift stores and consignment shops and the
like are my favourite places to shop. much easier on my purse to pay .99 for an article of clothing than some of the absolutely absurd prices in the department stores (and most of that stuff is so poorly made, it won't last past a season anyway)
my friends continue to be amazed at my ability to use coupons, as well. I pay virtually nothing for personal care items (one of our local chains does double coupons, although not as well as southern california) and I wait for those items to go on sale. although I buy very little in the way of convenience/packaged/prepared foods, I still manage to make good use of coupons. and really good buys on the above convenience foods go into the collection boxes for the food drives.
if one is not using credit cards, one is not likely to overspend. if the cash isn't there, one cannot buy. amazingly simple.
