depends. I used to shop at thrift shops. I buy store brand. I use things that are meant for other things. like the portable diaper wipes containers hold snacks bc the wipes dry out and the fruti bars crumble in the diaper bag so they fit perfectly in the wipes container

In some ways:

I dry clothes on a clothesline all year 'round, whenever possible.

I return bottles for the deposit instead of donating them

I cook from scratch for a number of reasons, money being one of them

I buy 2nd hand clothing (and gleefully accept hand-me-downs)

 I buy things for next year when they hit clearnance this year. Like I bought Ian's and Emma's swimsuit last year for a $1 on clearance. I also coupon and love thrift shops and garage sales.

 I wish we got money for bottles. It stinks we don't We do the can thing though by selling it to the aluminum people.

We get money BACK for bottles --we pay the deposit in the first place. 

We also pick up bottles and cans when we find them, which is 100% free money. That always feels thrifty.

I also happily squat down to pick up even pennies ... I'm happy to be paid a penny to do one squat. Even happier when it's a quarter!

I use coupons, shop sales, and go to salvation army and other thrift stores for clothes.  I like bargains, I even found my daughter's school uniforms there, the skorts she needed were like $3 each, which is awesome.  I always feel good when I find a bargain.
