adj. 1. Practicing or marked by economy. 2. Costing little; inexpensive.
My husband prefers to call me cheap. But cheap has a negative connotation, I like to think I'm economical, reasonable, careful, smart, or conservative.
It's easy to spend money, it's saving money that's tricky. I like to pretend the savings account is a black hole. Once money is deposited, I pretend it's gone forever.
My husband views our savings account differently. It's a money tree planted in the backyard that's attached conveniently to is ATM card.
The fact is...I'm the saver, he's the spender. It's proof that opposites attract. While he's content to squander away every last dime in his pocket, it's my job to minimize the number of dimes he has left to spend.
