I always do that, too, but not just for more soda; I hate watered down soda.

I "forget" meals all the time. Especially on weekends, 'cause what's the point? I might grab something in the morning and eat something in mid afternoon that's linner or dunch or whatever you want to call it. I am having a hard time bringing the bf around to this philosophy; he would prefer three formal meals a day. I don't mind the effort as much as I do the price. Groceries are expensive.

Order a glass of water with a lemon. Then add two sugar packets, stir it and voila. Free lemonade.

We just decided not to do holiday lights this year because it seems to tack a ridiculous amount onto our electric bill.

Just as well, because I need to decide if my hockey player display would now be a Senator goalie or just a random Blue Jacket.

I never got to see your hockey lights display from last year Kitsa. I was always at work when I remembered to look at it. Images normally don't display for me at work.

In progress:

Nighttime:



I'm a little disappointed because the lights were really something, but they just took way too much electricity. I might go ahead and put him up without lights, or maybe just the hockey net and not the big lights on the house. Then again, it's getting harder physically for me to do this stuff so it might just be a year without.

It is nice to have things lit when it's so dark and depressing outside, though

Edited to add: Yes, I know that looks like a green turd on his jersey. The perspective was weird and I screwed up the Jackets logo so much that I decided to do a stylized Christmas tree instead, but it tended to appear as a turd to most people.

I cut my own hair. Which isn't as bad as it sounds, I've shaved my head for the past few years and now that I've let it grow back, I take a pair of clippers and generally buzz it all over to a short level.

I don't know if that's me being cheap, or just knowing there's no reason to pay for something so simple.

Speaking of internet, my grandpa refuses to pay for it, and always goes to the library whenever he needs to look something up.

Thanks

The original plan was to make a whole scenario, but my energy left me after I finished the goalie.

hmmm...
well we lived in a cardboard box pretty much. :D it had no heat or ac and was in the middle of nowhere. but i don't think that makes us cheapskates, more like poor white trash. :') memories...

having a shit-hole house is actually kind of nice in a way (at least when you're a kid). Besides the not being able to have uber cool parties, you can trash the place and no one cares.

I just got back from holiday and my bag is full of free shampoo and soap.

I don't drink alcohol, so I can save a shitload when going out for dinner. I enjoy my food, and I don't mind paying for it, but sometimes you can end up paying something like $50 on drinks alone. I get water, not because I am cheap but because I like it.

I don't smoke either. Don't drive a car... these things save me a lot of money I figure, so I can spend it guilt free on other things pretty easily.

I reapair anything I can rather than buy it new. Electronics I get fixed. I hold on to receipts for warranties.
