Being one of Lady Gaga's bazillion Twitter followers has its perks. The Mother Monster is home for the holidays, and she has been hanging with the Germanotta family and tweeting shopping advice to her followers, fully admitting that she clips coupons and looks for money-saving deals.

Even though Gaga rakes in millions of dollars as one of the most successful pop stars of her generation, that doesn’t prevent her from enjoying the wares at vintage stores or seeking out bargains when shopping.

It also turns out that the OG Mother Monster -- her own mama Cynthia Germanotta -- put "Stefani" in her place during Christmas preparations. Oddly, Gaga spelled her real name wrong. But we love how Mama G wears the platforms in this relationship. So adorbs. It's like we got a real world taste of Gaga when she is home and hanging.

She posted:

I'm telling you, if your in a christmas pinch go to vintage shops, most have archive jewelry from the fifties + affordable! great presents!

She also loudly and proudly proclaimed that she uses coupons, her right at a native New Yorker.

why do people look at me like I'm crazy when i use coupons at grocery or try bargaining at retail, IM FROM NEW YORK WHERE IS THE SALE RACK

Gaga also offered a keyhole view of how things are going at her family home while Christmas approaches.

im a vision s---tily wrapping xmas presents getting blunt ashes on everything while everyone calls me "stephanie." my family is so eighties

Gaga wasn't shy and shared how Mama G makes the rules!

have "um mom, my name is gaga" she told me I changed my name every year since i was 4 + to please take the ends off the string beans #NYmoms
