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.

I might have to change my name after this job.

I've been working recently for an Agency, usually catering, but this week I've been cleaning up in the offices of a mental health centre. I am hover monkey.

The daily ration of black bin-bags, for an office with 25 staff and twice as many patients, is one bag. While being shown around I was instructed to tip the contents of the old bin into the new bag which I carry around.

It's not so bad, mostly paper. The worst part is delving through the masses of teabags that are used each day...by hand.

Works for me when I'm poop-scooping.
