Extreme Cheapskates

Extreme Cheapskates is a reality television series that documents the lives of those who take frugality to an extreme. It profiles people who stop at nothing to spend nothing. From making reusable toilet paper and reusing dental floss to diving in garbage bins for gifts, these penny pinchers devise outrageous ways to cuts costs by any means necessary.

In the half-hour episodes, viewers meet nifty-thrifty folks including Kay, who washes her clothes while she showers; Greg, who flushes his toilet just once a week; Ben, who makes his own toothpaste; Abdul, the “ultimate haggler”; and Vickie, a mother of five who refuses to spend money for a telephone, a television or even new clothes for her kids.
