So settle in as we start the conversation today with these questions:

Is your family doing something special to stretch spending dollars in this economy? Do you have tips for other families?

We do all of our Online Shopping at www.Bucks4Me.com and the savings get us all types of other needed items.

We use coupons, we eat at home a lot more, we called our cell phone and cable companies to get better rates, we try and get all of our errands done on the same trip to save on gas, we canceled services that were unnecessary or that we can take care of ourselves (gym, lawn care, satellite radio.)

We have, as yet, not turned on our A/C. We probably won't use it until well into May. When we do use the A/C, it is set at about 82. If we want to stay cool, we take off some clothes. We also use some of the strategies that Ms Manes mentions. In addition to using coupons, we exploit the buy one get one offers.
