I started using coupons because I like nice things but we don't have millions of dollars, and because I was tired of fighting with my husband about money. I was lucky enough to marry a guy who has a clue about finances, and I have no doubt that without him I'd be penniless. We worked out a system that worked for both of us--separate accounts--and I quickly realized that the less I spent of things I need, the more I'd have left for the things I want. But a funny thing happened along the way: I realized that I actually like saving money. To me it truly is an adventure, the adventure of finding style and luxury on a budget.
