Are you “tight” with your money?
A discussion on another thread prompted me to ask this:
How tight are you with your money, and what examples of being tight do you have? I’d like to hear your funny stories...
I never buy anything that’s not absolutely essential unless it’s discounted. So I’ll pay full price for bread and milk but that’s about it. I always look at the reduced section for stuff that’s near its sell by date.
I also used to have 1 set of batteries that I’d switch between the TV remotes depending on which remote I needed to use, rather than putting batteries in all of them. Before some clever clogs pipes up: yes I know this just meant wearing down the one set more quickly!
All that said I don’t see being tight as a bad thing, it is just being good with your money. If I have to throw my money around recklessly to be considered “normal” I’d rather not be normal.
