If I took a dump then I also grab soap, wipe myself down with the soap, then I take the water and rinse off the soap

never say those words again

Uhhhhh...huh. Well....

The entire point of being frugal is that you spend less on the things that matter less so you have more to spend on the things that matter more. Spend less on a car and clothes and electronics and food so you have more to spend on a home and family and such. It's about living beneath your means so you can afford to do the things you want to do.

This does not seem anything like this. This seems like a weird OCD.

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.

So we're recycling the tampons, are we? Or is it stuff-folded baby socks? I guess they would last longer through the washings...

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.

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.

Wiping your ass with paper instead of washing with water is disgusting when you think about it.
 
2012-10-02 06:15:59 AM  
What's funny is she admitted she *still uses paper towels* - to dry her cooch/ass off after going to the toilet. Sure, it's a lot less than if she didn't use water/soap and used toilet paper exclusively, but still. Taking frugality to a whole new level of crazy there.
 
2012-10-02 06:26:57 AM  
Is that soap free? Because toilet paper is so relatively cheap that unless you are using free soap, you're probably coming out about even.

Preparing your own food is the healthiest, most cost effective thing you can do. Example - roast chicken dinner night 1. Leftover chicken is either prepared with alfredo/pasta or made into chicken salad for lunch. Carcass goes into a crockpot with leftover veg and spices to make stock for soup or frozen for future use. Stock up on staples when they are on sale, etc. Simple really.

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.

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.

we can thank Morton Downey Jr for pioneering trash talk TV in the 1980's. there have been many since, some in disguise as otherwise but they too are exploiters. i cringe knowing what the rest of the world must think of americans when they see the content of our television broadcasts and the people on these shows.

---it's good to be a wise steward to your money. it's commendable to be frugal with your coin. it's another thing to go through life as a cheapskate.

Asian? Jeebus, people has also prbably seen her digging through trash cans trying to find returnable cans and bottles as well. If I had a bidet I would try to save on toilet paper but what she's doing id kind of gross. More power to her though.

Mother-of-five Vickie from Ashton, Idaho, refuses to shell out cash for a telephone, a television or even new clothes for the children. And for meal time she scours the local area for road kill.

That other stuff bothers me, but this gets me the most. It's one thing to indulge in your own neurosis, but to inflict them on your children is a whole other thing. My God woman, we're in the second decade of the 21st century, get your kids some food to eat and some means of communication.
 
2012-10-02 07:16:30 AM  
I suspect she's using a hell of a lot more water to wash her clothes in the shower, and they're going to be distorted and ruined before long unless she also has a mangle. And by the look of her, that's exactly what's happened.

/the only thing you can wash in the shower are socks or tights, if you're a businessperson in a hotel room.

'Whenever I have dirty clothes I try to wash them while I'm showering. Today I'm using a free sample of detergent I got.

'Once I'm done showering then I lather up the clothes. I think the last time I did laundry was maybe three years ago,' she says.

What about "dropping the kids off at the pool"? Does that count as classy? I say dump and I'm 38.
 
2012-10-02 07:20:16 AM  
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.
 
2012-10-02 07:34:19 AM  
I don't know what's worse....this lady or the lady last season who used towel scraps for toilet paper and washed and reused them.

The worst part of that whole scene is watching her kid fold the washed poo towels and saying, "this one is kinda dirty should I throw it out?" And holds up a streaked cloth. She then tells him no bc it is still good.
 
2012-10-02 07:39:11 AM  
That just seems excessively nasty. Yes, sure, once the appocalypse arrives luxuries such as toilet paper and nice warm water and lenor lavender and mandarin clothes conditioner may be hard to come across..

But till then... Who in the hell could,no would live like that from choice? that's gone beyond frugal and thrifty and into downright 'icky'.

And seriously, you can buy a 6 pack of toilet tissue for 99p. That doesent exactly break the bank. If you really think that's expensive you could still use the 'one up one down and one for polish' mentality to make that ever so precious roll of paper last that little bit longer.

Besides the obvious India and China, Indonesia, Pakistan, and Bangladesh are in the top ten largest countries on Earth. I'm going to suggest that well over half of people use water and their left hand, not TP, and the ratio is probably closer to 3:1.

That's because it works. I've been on the underwear line of an institutional laundry. People:

Indeed. If we made basic econ a high school requirement, a lot more people would know what opportunity cost is. Maybe.

We must be farking billionaires then because we use both toilet roll and moist toilet paper - and still manage to have enough in the budget for laundry detergent and a washer/dryer. I'd hate to see the rest of her apartment, more to the point I'd hate to smell the rest of her apartment.
