cheap cheap

folks know hes cheap
many know who he is
i wont name names today
you know though

hes got the shortest alligator arms you ever seen
real short
in fact
the first thing he says when we all go out to eat
i want my own ticket
only just that ticket
his arms only extend far enough to reach just that one

now some of these stories i am about to share
these folks arent broke
they are middle class many upper middle class
its sort of in their dna

sorry but that dna runs in our family

at habitat for humanity i was known for my dumpster diving
i pulled many a pvc pipe out a lot of metal and cardboard
to recycle

not long after we moved here
we had zero nada furniture
just some pots and pans and our glassware and plates etc
i saw this old green chair with peeling paint on it on the side of the road
for some reason it appealed to me
its sitting now in our bedroom
its that chair you have in your bedroom that no one ever sits on
its just to hold the clothes you take off you might wear tomorrow

my wife she and her mom
they be the queens of dumpster diving
they grab stuff off the side of the road
in fact
in the dining room here we have a lamp thats unique
its my favorite lamp
we cleaned it off
put in those last forever bulbs that look old
no one would ever know
it gets a lot of compliments

we have friends that are not poor
they are always grabbing things off the side of the road
i hate to go visit them
since our car sometimes is full when we leave
ok so i did get a lot of planters for the school garden from her

clark howard the consumer im on your side guy
we need more of them since now the government consumer folks
they are for the rich guys now
he gave a long list of extreme type cheaper folks

after i read them
i wondered
does he know our family and friends

now he did list folks who saved shower water for watering their garden
i am guilty as charged
i was more aggressive at the country n since all we had was rainwater
this person even scoops out the bathwater to use on her non edible plants
well we did run our washing machine water to some of the trees

now this one is cheap
i might feel guilty doing this
when she goes to amusement parks like disneyland she brings along
toys etc from cheap places and gives them to her younger kids
who apparently are quite happy with getting those toys from disneyworld
wink wink

another person goes to the grocery store when they are giving out all
those free samples of food
they make it their meal

ok ok
so when i go to traders joes
i do drink 1-3 of their little coffee cups to top off my coffee for the day
somehow they just make their coffee taste so rich and bold

i look at all our furniture and stuff in our condo
none of its is new
its either used or dragged home by you know who from off the street
we are good with all this

here is the link to all 31 of the cheapest of the cheap
many of you may recognize yourselves in that list
i hope so

he really does have real short alligator arms though
