Cheapskate owns only one light bulb

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

We love a good money saving tip as much as the next person but Stephanie Bennett takes things to an extreme as she walks around the house with a lightbulb, among many other things.

Stephanie is on a mission to keep her outgoings as low as possible so she collects lint from her dryer to turn it in to makeshift cotton pads which she will use to take her nail varnish off and apply her make up.

When it comes to the lightbulb, the mother will move it around the house with her and reckons doing so saves $60-a-month on electricity.

One time on a local radio station I was listening to at work they had people call in with stories they knew about "frugal" people and there was a guy that would hang is dental floss from the mirror and use the same piece all week.  There was another that would peel the two ply toilet paper apart so he would have twice as much :lol: This woman definitely has them beat.

She could save the same amount of money if all the lights had bulbs but she just had on light on at a time.  It would be the same and less hassle.   What a dumb***  her mother might trip in the dark and hurt herself, then no money has been saved because medical bills are expensive.

Exactly. But when that happens maybe she'll think twice! Or maybe not.

Probably not.  She will find some way to patch herself up and not go to the doctor.  I heard about a woman who was miserly and very rich, but no one knew until she died.  When her son was a teenager she wouldn't pay for antibiotics for her son even though the doctor said that if he didn't get them he would loose his leg, which he did.   I can't even imagine that.
