Our Fab & Fru friend Afshar wrote in to tell us this Cheap vs Frugal story about his father- Mr. Bargain..
Mr. B lives for finding good deals and milking them to the max! One of his fave food bargains at his local Costco, is the $1.50 hot dog & all you can drink fountain soda combo. Ok, maybe not the healthiest meal on the block – but you can’t beat the price or the free refills! The kicker? Mr.Bargain likes to SAVE the drink cup and drive back and forth to Costco to refill his soda for free!
He once drove back again and again with the same old cup for TWO WEEKS straight… Now that’s getting a bang for you buck, Mr. B! Some folks say Mr.B is taking advantage of the system, and that he’s totally cheap. While others think he is a frugal genius. Tell us what you think about this penny pinching soda ‘pop’?| Print
