    I always thought an ISFJ's idea of ''slumming it'' was joining in on the 'extreme couponing' phenomenon.

    I'm almost there, now that you mention it I'm one of those people that only buy sale items, bogo's, or whatever "deal" items there are if I can get away with it.

    I meant that partially in jest, but actually, I do take advantage of coupons & particular store policies regarding sales and things, as well, but not to an extreme amount. It's still enough to enrage cashiers, and people waiting behind me---until they see I've easily hacked half the cost off my groceries/personal care items. A lot of the times, I can get things completely free, that way. Some people spend loads of time researching that stuff, & hoarding crazy amounts of shit they'll never even use. I just use coupons from the newspaper or go to the manufacturer's site of certain products I frequently use, & print out their promotional coupons..

    Likewise!

    I actually used to work at a grocery store and I was one of those cashiers and...yeah...with coupons I had a customer once cut down a $425 order to like $142 and some change. The other cashiers and I might sneer at these people or think, "Oh mother of fuck" when they'd come through our line but...it's hard to argue with savings like that.

    Incidentally, the grocery stores in my area have been cutting down on coupon usage considerably so there won't be a lot of that going on.

    Still (to try get back on topic) I like to keep my life fairly simple and while I don't understand why someone would like to live the more stressful lifestyle while having more stuff...if its what they want, well, I'm sure their are industries or markets willing to accommodate.

    One of the things I like about being a human being is all the diversity we have

    Yeah, that's remarkable.. but I almost feel like it might negate the purpose of the ''savings,'' as time is the more valuable currency one may wish to spend most carefully & efficiently. Of course, there is always a tradeoff, to some degree, no matter what we do.
