Hello all members! Do you call a person who is very good at saving money "a vigorous saver" or "an aggressive saver"?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Steve, it is one of those cases where I wouldn't use either term but I am having trouble deciding what I might say. Perhaps because it is a very unusual thing to do nowadays. I may say that someone is a resolute saver, an active saver, a strict saver or maybe even an enterprising saver.

You may wish to have a look at the meaning of thrifty although that is more a way of living and saving would just form one aspect of that.
