Just for fun!! Would you consider yourself to be a "spendthrift", "thrifty", "frugal" or a "tightwad"?

Most of us like finding a bargain whenever we shop, whether we save money buying "generic/store brand" items, clip coupons, or spend as little as possible. Which of these descriptions would you say fits your style of spending money the best?

Love to shop, but I love to save money as well. Everyone loves a bargain & there is something satisfying about getting good quality items on sale. Good poll Marie :)

Thanks! Yep, a good deal or a bargain is always welcome when shopping. Some items I TOTALLY always buy the generic, or store branded product. Other things, I've got my favorites and stick to them faithfully. I figure that I save enough on the "generics" that I can splurge on some of the name brand items. :-)

I am frugal. I would rather save money and when I want something I have the money to buy it.
