How supportive is your significant other about the frugal living, coupons, stockpiling?

Very! He's always been WAY more frugal than I am, though I now know more about coupons/sales than he does since I do it regularly.

He is very supportive. He likes to see all the money we save the grocery store from my coupon clipping and stuff!

Mine likes to see all of the goodies I get for free or next to nothing! A few years ago money was very tight and we couldn't really afford snacks etc, just basic stuff. So now I am able to get many snacky type things(not nec. junk food) for cheap and he loves it :-) My boys would always tease me about coupons but I would say..you know that..xxx that you are eating? You wouldn't have that if I didn't use coupons

DH frequently brags about the money I save. Especially when talking to his siblings who don't use coupons. He also loves the fact that we never run out of any HBA products.

My DH also brags to people occasionally. I am VERY anti-clutter, so it's myself I have to battle with to stockpile stuff. I'm not TOO bad about it though, like right now I have 3 additional bottles of dish soap, 2 deodorants (until sunday lol) and 5 bottles of pediacare, and that's my high end stocks so far.

I don't have a huge stockpile.

I have some extras of the things we use most, laundry soap, dishsoap, toothoaste, stain spray.

My dh is excited to see my savings.
Typically when I come home from my cvs or walgreens shop I show him everything I got and ask him how much I paid. He might guess $30 or $40 and I'll show him my reciept for $6 and he gets excited, lol.

My DH is very supportive. He laughs at me sometimes when I bring home more stockpile items, but he loves how much we are saving and that we never run out of things. He's always been a saver. He never spent much money, but he also never used coupons or watched for sales. So, we are a good team.
