I've talked numerous times about how cheap I can be. Which can come in handy for shopping. Like how I got these boots last year for under $10 or these pants for under $5.
But being cheap definitely came with a few challenges when we got married, as Chris was the opposite of cheap and didn't think twice about spending more money. Thankfully we've both learned a little from each other and have balanced each other out. He's learned the art of saving money and I've learned how to enjoy things like going out to dinner or a movie.
I kind of think if I married someone more like myself I may land myself a role on the TLC show Cheapskates. Who are the extreme of being cheap. Like not using toilet paper and making your own deodorant cheap. Or only getting furniture from dumpsters kind of cheap. It's one of those shows that is so disturbing you can't not watch it. And I really don't think I could ever go to those extremes.
Although in college we did do our share of dumpster diving runs to Krispie Kreme donuts. And believed we hit the jackpot when we'd find full packaged boxes of donuts that could fill up our trunk.
And I wish I could say that we only ate donuts that were in nicely packaged boxes, but that would be a lie. On the occasion we would grab the defect bag of donuts and we may have eaten those too. I think the Cheapskate producers should start visiting some college campuses for new candidates for the show.
