Re: Extreme Cheapskates
I only saw the episodes with the Asian lady, PHD guy, and the internet date guy.... I have no problem being economical, but there is a HUGE difference with being smart with money and frugal versus being a skinflint. These people went to extremes that were bordering on unethical (saving tags on shirts, paying for 3 buffet plates for 6 people).
Seeing the Asian lady (who was a CPA so probably made half way decent money especially since her apartment was paid off) wash her dingy, grungy clothes in the shower while she bathed..... or the internet dating dude only flush his toilet once a week.... I could understand this more if they were legitimately POOR, but these people just want to hoard their money. Too bad they can't take it with them when they die.
