This weekend, Tony was flipping through Netflix and stumbled across a TLC program called Extreme Cheapskates. While marvelling at the families presented on the show, it made us all think about the ways we try to save a few bucks here and there.
Tony is a huge fan of reusing gift bags. He can’t remember the last time he bought a gift bag. He keeps them in tubs separated out by holiday and occasion.
On the other hand, Julie hates getting reused gift bags, but she will totally reuse gift bags as lunch bags to send to school with her daughters. She also sneaks in her own food to the movies. One of the quirkiest frugalities is washing out ziplock bags to reuse them.
