Extreme cheapskates getting even cheaper

Teehee! People who are already cheap, are taking their tightwad ways to the next level, according to the Associated Press. I believe it.

About one woman, Amy VanDeventer, in the article:

Before the economy tanked, she was still wearing maternity clothes from her last pregnancy, clipping coupons and using hand-me-downs to dress her daughters, ages 2 and 3. Now, she's salvaging bagel scraps left on their plates for pizza toppings and cutting lotion bottles in half so she can scrape out the last drops.

Gracious. That chica is not playing! I have no plans to salvage bagel scraps, but I know I've gotten a bit more, ahem, frugal in my ways. I can't remember the last time that I've bought lipstick. I rely on what I already have in my make-up stash.

Are you becoming an extreme cheapie? C'mon. Let Nat Nat know. Tell me your recession-infused cheapness!
