AbbeySomeone: I pride myself on being thrifty but there are some things that you should not skimp on. This woman is disgusting and the fact that she is on camera demonstrating her toilet habits just puts it over the top.Crist people, have some dignity.
Gortex: I'm one of the cheapest, most frugal people there is...but wow.not-so-CSB:The best household money-saving tip I've come across is to actually plan your week's meals in advance, and buy only what you plan on eating (including leftovers for lunch). It saves on impulse purchases and cuts down on stuff going bad in the fridge.
AverageAmericanGuy: I'm probably in the minority here, but I don't think the problem is necessarily that she doesn't use toilet paper. There are plenty of cultures that wash after using the toilet, as crazy as that sounds to Americans.Rather, I think the problem here is that she has no class, as evidenced not only by her actions but also by her use of language. "After I take a dump" is something I'd expect a punk teenager to say, not a grown woman. She is the lowest of the low and disgusting.And to what end is she skimping to this degree? This seems self-imposed rather than a problem of income. At the end of the month, what is that 6 dollars she's saved going to do for her? Somehow she's gone off the rails and needs some serious help.
JWideman: Oh, and hand washing your clothes is still doing laundry.

AverageAmericanGuy: She is sick. These cable channels are milking these mentally ill people for all they are worth.
Hawnkee: Why is it called "taking a dump" when you're actually "leaving a dump"? I mean, you're not really taking it anywhere?/Funk dat.

Fark Me To Tears: FTFA: Frugal-minded: Kay doesn't 'believe in spending money on something that you're just going to throw away'So we're recycling the tampons, are we? Or is it stuff-folded baby socks? I guess they would last longer through the washings...
Lt_Ryan: Agreed that 'dump' is a classless term. That said I took an assignment where I could work from home most days, then jokingly told the guys in the office they'd still see me everyday when I came in to take dump because it would save me on toilet paper.In all seriousness though, how much time does it take to her to save $6 a month. 5 minutes per day to wash clothes in the shower x 30 days is 2.5 hours a month for $6. That time would be better spent calling up and fighting your cable/internet/phone bill monthly it would take less time and save more. Or get a second job on the weekend.
markie_farkie: Washing instead of wiping is much more sanitary.If she was using street drainage ditch runoff instead of city tap water, she might get a crazy label in my book.Otherwise, nothing wrong with thinking how to undo what we've been brainwashed into doing, because some marketing guy's plan to sell something somehow became the norm.
Lt Los3r: I don't understand why washing oneself after using the bathroom instead of wiping with paper is such a weird concept to Americans. Billions of people around the world use water instead of paper. However, this woman is disgusting for showing her act on tape and going into detail using such language like "taking a dump". She could have just discussed it in a much more sophisticated way. Also saving six dollars over not doing laundry is utterly retarded.
AbbeySomeone: JWideman: Oh, and hand washing your clothes is still doing laundry.If she lives in an apartment she isn't paying for water either.
