My workmates were tidying out the rotten fruit bowl today after complaining there was a smell......made me wonder if it was me cause I decided to wait till tonight to have my bath as my granny always told me it was cheaper to wait till evening to heat water LOL

    You order the cheapest curry rather and than the one you want and the bill gets split 10 ways and you realise you've saved 20p and subsidised everyone elses....

    Your friend who unknowingly earns half what you do offers you their discount vouchers as they have assumed you're in financial crisis because of your attitude to money and hint they will do whatever they can to help :o

    you nip into Aldi for one item, buy 27 others whilst in there and carry your shopping out to the car rather than pay 3p for a plastic carrier bag and then have to find your car key without dropping all the stuff you've just bought! Still at least it amuses the passengers in the next car........

    You only consider buying new clothes or shoes when most of yours have fallen apart and are beyond repair!

    You spend most of your lunch hour walking to a cheap card shop and back because you find the clintons on the corner too expensive. (in my defence I go for a walk in most of my lunch breaks anyway)
