I don't coupon because there are rarely coupons for healthy food and I make my own cleaners because they're HEALTHIER for my family.  I don't buy much 2nd hand, but I do take hand me downs.  I would continue to do that, no matter our financial situation.

I would still take hand-me-downs sure.  And I do coupon for some items and would continue to do so.

I don't coupon much anymore but I would definitely still shop at goodwill and other resale shops.

I don't coupon.  I tried but I sent more money and wasn't eating as healthy.  I do ad match though because it save me gas money.  I would still shop at second-hand stores and garage sales for my kids clothes because they grow so quickly and abuse them so easily by just being kids!

Hell yeah.... why not still save your money and use it wisely. A lot of people who have a "never ending supply of money" (sarcastic remark by the way) coupon and buy second hand or at antique shops, etc.

Organic suppliers are actually coming out with a lot of coupons now. I've been buying a lot more organic and making healthier foods and it is coming out a lot cheaper that way than buying the processed foods and I use coupons. Grocery stores are also having deals in the organic sections as well now.

Absolutely, just because money is no object doesn't mean there's no need to be thrifty.

i would, i think i am cheap at heart........ it floors me when others go out and buy 100 pairs of shoes for example or think that just because it is expensive that it is the best..... in some cases this maybe true but not always......
