Re: Cheapskate or Spend-O-Matic ?
Supporting a family makes me and my wife pretty spend thrifty. However, it is also a philosophical point; we try to buy what we need, which is a much smaller list than what we want. We both believe in living relatively simply. That, and I was raised by Cincinnati Germans, who understand that guilt and debt are the same word in the mother tongue.
When it comes to actually purchasing something, I would like to think we are wise consumers. Price comes in to play, but we don't always buy the cheapest thing if it means sacrificing quality.
And by the way, I"ll quote my dad on the comment about not paying full price for anything (Dom). He always says, "The price you pay IS the full price."
I don't really know what that means, but it sounds so pithy and authoritative. Especially when coming from a battle hardened salesman like my dad.
