Re: Cheap people
I am frugal but not cheap. There is a difference. I have to be--I don't make a ton of money. Neither does my husband. He likes to joke that if we ever became insanely rich, I'd still love a bargain. He is not wrong. While it's a necessity, I get a huge thrill out of finding a bargain. It's a visceral reaction. It's a sport to me. If there were a game show about this, I'd totally win.
You could pull any handbag or pair of shoes or a coat out of my closet and I could tell you where I found it and how much I paid. It's weird, I'll admit, but harmless because I live within my budget.
If you want to see cheap, check out Extreme Cheapskates on TLC. That will make your toes curl. Those fools are C.H.E.A.P.
I couldn't be with a cheap man. Frugal, yes. Cheap, no. Money, while nice, doesn't impress me much. I'm much more impressed with a man who can budget and live within his means and take care of business.
