People who eat in dumpsters aren't usually frugal; they're called the homeless. And if they don't have a dime to their name, its that or a soup kitchen, if they can find one...
As to the knitting with dog hair, I've heard worse. CNN had a news story of someone who used a breast pump to get more milk then they needed for breast feeding purposes. The problem is, when junior didn't need so much, they made cheese out of it. Now THAT STORY, was gross; especially because the person went to sell some of that cheese /barf
Some of these suggestions are gross... if you want to be frugal, try some of the following:
Use a "TracFone" instead of an expensive Smart Phone. I mean, do you really need play with that toy 24 / 7?
For internet I have cheap dial up. You can't watch videos too well, but you can get email and it does save a lot of money.
Use coupons, go to clearance sales, yard sales, too.
Instead of having expensive cable, read a book. You can go to a library and get books (or use the internet) for free! There is nothing but garbage on TV, anyway.
Don't use credit cards all over the place wherever you go. You can save by using cash. If you don't use your credit card, it slows you down and makes you think about what you're buying first.
And, oh, yeah, people, please stay of topic. I'm sick of every freakin' online article being turned into "get rid of Barry," etc. Grow up, people.
i used to dumpster dive every day at work. i was supervisor of maintenance at an apartment complex every morning i would start by walking the grounds picking up loos trash and sweeping around the dumpsters, i would check inside the dumpsters and recycling. while i did not take food out i did recover two pairs of timberland shoes in nearly perfect condition. one had a small scuff on the toe. several pieces of native American art peace pipes bead sashes and the lot bicycles computers/parts/software and enough coke points to get 6 years of popular mechanics for free
oh and i did once gather up pallets for fire wood to help heat our house when it was really cold and the power was knocked out by storms
as for the rest of the things they showed um no thanks
