    In this economy wherein you work hard for your money, you should try to safe money as much as you can. For instance look for groceries & food items on deal, check gas price before you refill and do your due diligence before spending money.

    However, there is a school of thought, which believes that you shouldn't do all this and shouldn't be cheap. If you cant meet both ends and save enough then just make more money.

    Would like to hear your thoughts on this subject.

    I think what you mean is when someone has to pay for some special party. They are ment to go all out and not care for money. To me it feels like it has to be a bit of both. You gotta obviously save your money but make enough for you to satisfy your significant other. Has to be done with planning not mindlessly.

    Nothing wrong with the examples you gave imo being cheap is when you spend too much effort in order to save very little.
