Would you urinate in a jar to save $5.00 per month?

I got sick of the pundits on TV tonight and I flipped the channel over to TLC. There was a preview for a show called Extreme Cheapskates. A lady on one of the episodes asked her boyfriend to pee in a jar so that she could save $5.00 a month. Another episode shows a lady that doesn't use toilet paper and serves her guests food from the garbage can. Neither one of these ladies were broke but they still went through extreme measures to save a buck.

Do you think that Extreme Cheapskates is a real show?

1. I have seen that show.

I don't know what it make of it.

I believe in saving money but these people go to far.

The toilet paper woman was to much for me.

7. She would be, she never spends any money.

I wouldn't go to her place.

There is cheap and then there is cheap.

I have to DVR that show and watch it a little of it at a time.

2. omg I watched that too - I couldn't watch all the pundits and was desperate

The peeing in the jar was so nasty - especially when she put the jar on the kitchen table

She had projected her savings to age 116 - I would rather die early and flush than live long and pee in a jar.

6. You can't watch Honey Boo Boo?

I love Honey Boo Boo but I went one year without cable and I got to know my family a little better.

I am sure you don't have to pee in a jar there.

9. I love Honey Boo Boo

I think that Alana is a very intelligent little girl. Her mother June is well stocked up on TP...

10. June is into coupons.

She has lots of TP.

I like the show.

Don't know if I would like a train track running in my yard.

11. OMG No

Have you seen the episode where Alana is selling lemonade in her front yard? It shows a very busy road in front of their house. I wouldn't want a train tracks in the back of my house either. There are also telephone wires over the house but it looks like a clean home.

12. I live across the street from a railroad yard, that is close enough.

The house looks clean.

The family seems to love each other, seems to be happy.

Nothing wrong with that.

Maybe being on this show they can move to another house.

15. I haven't watched it but

it sounds like they'd be good candidates for a composting toilet if the issue is saving money on flushing. I've used them before at Dancing Rabbit, and they were fine. If that were the norm here, people would take it for granted and it would be a lot better for the environment.

16. I don't believe any of that so called reality tv.

It's strange that is takes so many producers to make a reality show, IMDB shows that one as having a dozen, some of those 'reality' shows even list writers. Hmmmmmm

17. I think that these people have mental issues.

 

It's okay to conserve, but they are way over the top!
