Taking Frugality A Little TOO Far

April 23, 2009

Frugal

There is such a thing as being a little TOO frugal. I found some pictorial examples for those of you who may need a little prompting out of your miserly ways. Take these, for example.

Like trying to cram as much stuff as you can for one trip.

Thanks, Blazing Minds, for photo.

Maybe it really is time to get a new car now?

Hair frugality. Interesting. FAIL.

No no no.

I’m all for buying in bulk, but…

Aw come on! Beef is only $5 a pound!

Something tells me this won’t fool the kids.

Going “green” with the street cleaning. It’s nice to see government tightening the belt, but…

So go ahead and BE FRUGAL! But, remember, sometimes a penny saved is really just a dollar wasted.

    A few years ago my nephew thought he’d found a really great deal on eBay: an X-box for only six dollars. Turns out the listing was just for the box that originally contained the X-Box (“Play a joke on your friends! Hilarious!”)
