My new year's resolution is not to buy in bulk this year. I will only buy things on a need to basis and only 1 item at a time. After watching extreme couponing, I had an epiphany that cost savings are only realised when the stockpile is used. Also, I can't believe how good things are in America - their houses are bigger (for the same price), cars are bigger (for the same price) and now they get their groceries almost free! No wonder a green card is so highly coveted.
