btw i suck at this, but my wife is a crazy good... lol
we don't hurt for money at this time but she still has the system down, for her it's like found money, she has a little file folder full of coupons, she knows what days the stores have the best deals etc etc.. the other day we went for a few things the bill was almost 80 bucks then she went to work lol, out came the club card then the coupons and she took something crazy like 48 dollars off the total the final tab was like 27 dollars...

I believe the word you're looking for to describe that second bit is "thrifty"
