Answer for question 4560.

How much do you try to be frugal, and what are your tips for doing so? What methods do you use to try to save a bit of money when you can (coupon clipping, stocking up, re-purposing things to reuse them, etc)? What's the greatest "deal" you've ever gotten on something?
"A penny saved is a penny earned" is what my Dad used to say. I buy what I need and will go to different stores to find what I want. Accept no substitutes because its not like the real thing. If its not on sale I don't buy it. I will wait . No, I don't bring cans and bottles back I always give them to a kid or someone I see picking them up on the side of the road. I did the coupon thing until they stopped putting them in the paper. We have a new "Aldi's" food store near my house and I will not go anywhere else… And yes, I will drive 10 miles out of my way to save a Nickle a gallon on gas.. Doesn't everybody?

I don't shop at ALDI. I support a local businesses owned by locals and a co-op. I buy petrol at my nearest service station which is also owned by a local family (and they still have a dairy farm plus one son now has a tractor business). Most of the time petrol is cheapest at this service station, anyway.

Unfortunately we don't have a deposit on bottles anymore. I wish we still did. I recycle all aluminium cans, glass bottles, cardboard, paper and all plastic that can be. I compost a lot, too. Such as all food scraps plus some paper etc.

Unfortunately in America where I live the local business is a boarded up shack or building and no more. Replaced by a convenience store or gas station owned by a Pakistani with a bad attitude who barely speaks English.. I say "Aldis" because a half gallon of 2% milk is $1.60 American dollars. Other stores are $1.60 a QUART. That is is a reflection of the fair prices in that store... Connecticut gas tax is high so I go to another State and its .25 to .35 cents a gallon cheaper.. Thank you for sharing..
