Cheapest Person I Know

I love hearing cheap people stories. It’s hilarious what people will do just to save a dollar. Here are 12 stories submitted by AOL users. Some of them are hilarious. Like this one:

Da3B says:
“We superglued a quarter to the floor so our cheap co-worker would try to get it up. Not to our surprise, he tried and tried and tried. Finally after about a week of this, he bought a $2.00 chisel to finally scrape this quarter up.”

or this one:

Jerseygirl225 says:
“My ex would quickly pass the usher so that his movie ticket wouldn’t get ripped. He would then go see a manager and say that his friends had purchased him a ticket without him knowing, and he would get his money back.”

I have a very cheap coworker who never goes out for birthday lunches except for when it’s his birthday and he gets treated! This same guy crashes retirement parties at work. Yes, he attends them even when he doesn’t know the main person retiring and eats all the fancy food they serve at those things!

I think the older I’ve gotten the more cheap money conscious I’ve become. I try to bring my lunch more often and I always search for the best prices and make use of coupons whenever I can! hehe. Anyways, I am a full supporter of being “frugal” but I don’t think people should take saving money so seriously like some of these stories. Like my coworkers always say, “You can’t take the money with you to the grave!”

“A guy who works for me has a wife [who] unplugs the digital alarm clock when they get up in the morning to save on electricity!”

LOL! Thanks for the link!

I don’t consider myself cheap, I’m frugal :)
