All good examples. You guys are, as the comedy relief in Scorpion King says, "tigher than a crab's buttocks." I drive 5 miles to save 2 cents per gallon on gas. Old habit, and very hard to break. I always order water and rarely order fries at a restaurant. I am magically drawn to 99 cent value menus. I buy factory-direct HT stuff whenever possible. Beware of substandard TP... John G
WOAH! I surely hope that most of these replies are jokes! I'm not usually cheap, and if I do have a cheap side, it's more due to laziness than cheapness: -I'll drink milk days after the exparation date to avoid buying a new gallon. -I'll wear underwear and socks with holes to avoid buying new. -Adding water to the laundry detergent bottles to make them last longer. -Using the soap until it virtually disappears. Etc.
Back in college, I bought a jimmy-hat out of vending machine at a gas station for 75 cents and intended to clean it after each use and reuse it for the whole semester. Sadly, it stayed in the original wrapper.
I'm cheap but not that cheap. The only things I insist on buying name brand are condoms. That .50 saved by getting one out of a vending machine is insignificant compared to the college education i'll likely be financing 18 years from now due to its failure
My cousin likes to "catch rain" in large buckets in order to save on the water bill. Plus...To save additional water consumption, this individual doesn't like to "flush" unless absolutely necessary. (Top that.)
McDonald's biggest money maker is their fries. Compared to what they make on fren...excuse me...."freedom" fries, they are virtually giving their burgers away.
Isn't it strange how you are cheap on some things, but then totally waste on others? I spend almost 55 dollars a month on my internet. But I freak out if someone leaves a light on when not in the room. Because of course that saves me about 12 cents a month.
I'm a cheapskate but your cousin should seek professional help. Thats just absurd.
If the guy is paying water charges by the number of litres or gallons he uses, collecting rain water for certain uses (eg: watering plants) makes sense. It would help keep his water bills down to a small extent. Not flushing though......now that is weird.
