Frugalistas Frugalistas

New show on TLC. Extreme Cheapskates

Posted by   + Show Post

Some time back they had the 1 hour show of Extreme Cheapskates.   These were the most extreme cheapskates around. I remember the woman who made her own reusable toilet paper.  That she washed like cloth diapers.The guy who came home with 2 goat heads for dinner.       It turned into a series that started this Tuesday.  I watched.  I couldn't believe some of the cheap skates.  I am frugal. But not like them on the show.  A woman dumpster dived at a restaurant I think it was.  For food she took home to eat.   The guy who flushed his toilet only once a week.  He shower with his clothes on.  That was his way to wash his clothes. Instead of the washer and dryer.

 I agree....it's nasty.  There's frugal, and then there's being just sick.  I wouldn't classify these people as frugal at all!

yes!

I was hoping to get some helpful ideas from this show, instead it makes me sick to see what these people are doing and how cheap they really are.  I have watched 2 shows so far and that was enough for me.

We watched a bit of it once but after the whole "staging" of the Breaking Amish show I dont trust TLC anymore. It all comes off staged to me now even if its not.

There's a difference in being frugal and just down right stupid.  I refuse to watch those extreme shows because, to me, it just promotes more stupid television.

I like to save money but that is a little to extreme for my taste-more power to them though-they are saving -
