How do you save money?

"I consistently buy this same bottle of wine, Alianca Foral, and it always costs $8 including tax. I think it's the only Portuguese wine you can get in town for under $10. I've traversed all the liquor stores in town and you can only find it at Mom & Pops. I also saved money by participating in 'Buy Nothing Day.' I'm not much of a consumer. Every day is 'Buy Nothing Day' for me-my mantra is 'Buy Nothing.' As such, I go to the library as much as possible to save money."

What do you splurge on?

"I recently bought an out-of-print edition of poetry for $90. I like to collect rare and old books. I'll also splurge on plane tickets for traveling. If the mood strikes, I'll invest in a more expensive bottle of wine."
