in thread At what level of structural complexity is Moose a win-win?
Sure, that's usually a better approach. I don't remember the details of why, but for one project it made sense to store dollars and cents separately. (Maybe it was because the retailer used the number of cents to indicate special information such as "manufacturer price" and "clearance price" and we didn't want to recalculate from decimal information every time.) Pre-breakfast, of course that was the first example to come to mind.
