There was a show on TLC last week and the same episode ran last night. It is called Extreme Cheapskates. One of the guys takes food home from other diners when they go out to eat. He dug through dumpsters and went to the dollar store to find items to give his wife for their 25th Anniversary.
One lady and her family uses rags for toilet paper. They keep a container next to the toilet and they wash them as necessary. She said they have used the same rags for 5 years. She and her kids picked “greens” at the park to make a salad for neighbors.
You don’t need to go to these extremes, but little changes in how you spend your money can make a difference.
I am working on compiling some of my blog posts into e-books. The first I am working on is how to save on groceries and dining out. I am planning on having it completed in the next week or two.
