When it comes to saving money, are you cheap -- or thrifty? Well, meet one mom whose daily money saving methods got her national attention, and now she wants to help you protect your pocketbook. "I always say... you can't spend what ya ain't got!" And Margie Read means it! That's why the Rachel Ray Show picked her the thriftiest mom in America. Her frugal ways -- are a way of life. She's re-used paper towels for years, long before it was "in" "I use the paper towel… rinse it out, dry it out and re-use it again… but now they think it's green!" She only runs some appliances at night to slash her energy bill. "Dishwasher, dryer, washing machine… only after 9'oclock… because it's half or three-quarters of the price less!" Dryer sheets get used up to three times. And shopping is all about sales! "You have to go to the back when you go into any grocery store or any store but especially grocery stores… you have to go to the back because that's where all the markdown areas are…" "Another thrifty thing I do is when I go to fast food restaurants, collect all the condiment packets…" Of course she clips coupons and scours the classifieds. That's where she found this designer dining room deal! "...Just shopping there, that classified one, saved me $35-hundred dollars…!" As for new trends? "...Six months down the road it's like half, and a year down the road it's maybe three-quarters off…so why not wait?"
