I do a lot of things to be frugal, but after watching extreme cheapstakes I don't know that I'm that frugal, but I will not go to the extremes they do! lol

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”

IMO Extreme Cheapskates, is a put on, and it gives those like ourselves bad names and taints what true honest-to-goodness frugality is all about. Shameful really.
