Watching reruns of Extreme Cheapskates made me think about my own cheapskate ways and how a couple of things I do are a little embarrassing. My daughter has allergies ,so she blows her nose a lot and we go through a lot of tissues and napkins. So whenever I'm in any situation where I'm given a napkin, I take it home. When my daughter needs to blow her nose, there's a drawer of napkins including a napkin from a birthday party, a few napkins from a fast food place, some free samples of Puffs tissues that CVS was giving out, a paper towel from a spill station at Walmart and so on. As a single mom, and the sole breadwinner, I would rather spend my money on food than tissues which will be thrown away. Do you do any weird or embarrassing things to save a buck or two? I have another one. When I was in college, my dorm had a community laundry room. Girls would throw out laundry detergent bottles that still had a little detergent left in them, so I would pour all the remains of those bottles into one bottle and actually end up with enough free detergent to do one or two loads of laundry.
