This is a question Tightwads

There's saving money, and there's being tight: saving money at the expense of other people, or simply for the miserly hell of it.

Tell us about measures that go beyond simple belt tightening into the realms of Mr Scrooge.

Back in the day......story number 2
When my parents had economy 7 heating installed, my father made sure that I wouldn't know how to override the hot water controls by hiding the switch. If I wanted a bath or shower after 8am in the morning, I had to say 'dad, can I have a bath/shower in an hour please?' I was then told to stand in my bedroom so I could not see where my father was going, where the override switch was or how to use it.....

dude, I have over 30 years of these stories from making furniture out of tv stands to controlling the weekly shop, my father was frugal. Unfortunately my other half has turned out the same!
