    My brother in law's dad had property on the side of a hill. He would lay down old carpet on the hillside to kill the weeds. I don't mean a little bit of carpet either, his son replaced carpeting for a living so he a ton of the stuff. He also didn't want the deer eating his apples from the apple trees. Why? I don't know because no one was picking those apples. To stop them he piled up old motorcycle shipping crates under those apple trees. Not only cheap but one ugly eye sore as you drove by and his place was right off one of the main routes out of town.

    I sold my brand new $300 roping saddle on ebay for $250

    The guy that bought it first emailed me not one, but 4 times in one hour saying if was unreasonably priced and he could find it somewhere else for $100. I told him go for it.

    Then he changed face and paid for it.


    ONE month after shipping it to him he called me...no freaking clue how he got my # but he left a message saying he wanted his money back because I had misadvertised as a 15" when it was really a 14 1/2" seat..

    So I called him back, nicely explained that there's no 1/2" differences and eBay policy is 14 days after sale rhere is no refunds or exchanges etc.

    So he goes on a rant...and I see it on eBay from him 2 days later for....$800. Needless to say nobody bought it.

    I have only ever had 2 yard sales. I had never been to very many yard sales before the first one, so I had the items marked way below most "other" yard sales, as I found out. I mean, when a barely used $25 (retail) item is marked a dollar, people would ask, "would you take fifty cents?". That in itself had value, b/c my family and I laughed about it for years! One lady that never tried to "bargain" and that had bought a lot of stuff told me as I was helping her load her goods into her vehicle that she was buying stuff for her niece whose little daughter had cancer....I promptly gave her pick of any and all the toys (and there was a passel)..take em all if ya want. She hesitated - but I made sure she left w quite a few. So, even at a yard sale you can see "cheap"....but, honorable, too.

    My dad and I were at Tim Horton's one day and there was this guy who was asking everyone in there if they would buy him a donut and everyone said no, including my dad as he only had enough for us.

    While we were waiting the guy finally gives up and orders a coffee and a donut and hands the lady a $20 bill...

    Donuts^^^OMG!

    I was in some fast food place w my cousin once, she is the type that would have bought the man a dozen donuts. Anyway, we had finished eating and about to go when a man that was, by appearance, very "needy" came in, didn't order, and just sat down. My cousin was debating on whether she should buy him a meal. I was like, "um, lets go..okay?". So, the man asked around for a cigarette, a man offered him one that was apparently a menthol b/c the "needy man" refused and said, rather loudly, "I don't smoke menthols". We left.

    Exactly why I smoke menthol.......does that make me cheap??? LOL!!!!! When I was poor (really poor student with two jobs) I switched to mentol roll-your-owns because everyone kept 'borrowing' smokes of me and I couldn't afford to keep buying them, nor did I want to be a hold out and say no, once I changed no one wanted to 'borrow' a smoke.....plus they couldn't roll!!!! Same goes with the BBQ lighter I kept on me, no one stole that either!!!

    I'm now beyond having friends 'borrow' smokes and I can buy regular packs!!

    An aside here, but I have never seen bathroom attendants except in Europe. You have them where you are?

    My mom is borderline gross cheap there's an organization here that gets lots of almost-done food from the grocery stores to feed their rescue animals, but they get SO MUCH of it that they can't feed it all to the animals and a friend of hers takes it home to feed to his own cows (and himself). She used to love having him come over and drop off veggies, fruit, bread, etc.

    Now she just steals snips off of all the neighbours plants and we have huge greenhouses full of plants, that's a better way of eating cheap IMO.
