I’m not talking about things like you got free tickets to Nickleback and it was amazing. First, I don’t believe you. Second, that’s not the cheap I am talking about.
I mean being an actual cheapskate. Like foraging the local park for greens to eat (I do find this interesting though). Just something that was so cheap you still remember doing it.
Embarrassing stories welcome! But if you were proud of your cheapskatehood, please share!
I’ll start with two of my cheapskate escapades.
Last year I moved into a new office. In one of the drawers was a Valentine’s day card from the wife of the person who used to work in that office. IT was really nice, it played music when you opened it. So when Valentine’s day came around this year, I glued construction paper on the inside and wrote my own message to my wife on it. She didn’t particularly mention anything about it, but…
The second thing is that I make my own lemonade whenever we go out. I order just tap water and a bowl of lemon wedges. Using the lemons and the sugar packets from the table I make my own. This is one I am not ashamed of.
So what about you guys? Please share some stories!
P.S. I plan on making this into a post on my website, all responses that make it into the article will have a mention of your name here and link to your site.
