Jody and Jesse Lewis with their son, Jackson
Name: Jody and Jesse Lewis,
Age: 28
Hometown: Downingtown, Pa.
Monthly savings: $45

We have signed up for the customer rewards programs at all the places we regularly shop -- the local CVS pharmacy, Staples, Best Buy, even the pet-supply store. Our savings at the drugstore alone are about $240 a year, and we figure we save about $100 at each of the others. Since we would be spending that money anyway, it's nice to get something back in return.
NEXT: Using cloth diapers
