I am generally a pretty frugal person. One thing that I do seems to garner looks and reactions every time I do it. To me, I see great value in getting the most out of things we purchase.
I am so frugal I keep all non-working lighters in the house. Then, when I run out of a lighter that is 100% operational, I combine the efforts of two lighters. Meaning I use one that still sparks with one that still has fluid.
I have done this for a long time, and here’s the best reaction I have received when someone witnessed me using two lighters.
“Oh my gosh…what are you doing? I’m gonna give you $1.00 to go buy a new lighter.”
I politely declined the offer, but it sure made me chuckle. 🙂
