A Few Ways You Can Tell You're A Little Bit Too Cheap

Yesterday, I was taking shower and making a solid attempt to shave my legs. 
It wasn't really working because I think I've had the razor I was using for months. I literally can't remember the last time I went out and bought a new razor. Cheap or otherwise.
I guess there are few ways that you can tell you're a little bit too cheap. The razors are just the beginning. 
I have made two packages of toilet paper last me the entire semester. 
I am still on my first bottles of Suave Shampoo that my aunt bought for me when I moved in in August. 
Cafe Rio is literally the only thing I will splurge on and only because of the promise of an eventual free meal. 
Before I would buy more deodorant, I found the little crumbly pieces that fall down to the bottom and mashed those onto what was left and used that all. 

I do not drive if I can help it so that I don't have to pay for gas. 
I eat a lot of ramen noodles. And I only eat free ramen noodles. These particular ones were provided courtesy of my ex-work breakroom 
I take pictures of things that I want in stores to show to someone else who might want to buy it for me instead of buying it for myself. 
When I got my nails done for the Marine Corps Ball, I searched and search for the cheapest possible place until I found a full set for $20. 

I do not laundry until I have exhausted every possible wardrobe option because I don't want to pay the 2 bucks to do it. On top of that, I still have the same laundry detergent my aunt bought me when I moved in August. 

I don't have money and I don't want to spend money...I'm a little bit cheap. Hopefully that will change when a little bit when I get home and my mom is feeding me again. That is something I am looking forward to about moving back home. A full fridge and cupboards of quick fixes...

Is there any shame in being cheap? I don't really think so, but I wish I didn't have to be!

hahaha, I love it, you know what embrace the cheap. means that you are not occupied by the materialistic aspects of life. It is a humbling experience and much more appreciative of the finer things in life when it does happen. Or when someone buys you something that you were really wanting or needing.

Ha ha, I love the Cafe Rio meals ... that's me, too. And I do the same thing with taking photos of things people might want to buy me. I love this post.

HAHAHAHA! You crack me up and I TOTALLY understand! I will often steal my husband's shampoo or deodorant to avoid buying more for myself. lol And, I think it's necessary to try Cafe Rio if it's worth the splurge!

Haha omg I don't know how you do it with the deodorant! I hate the crumbly pieces, I toss it before it's even done just so I don't have to deal with them!

I'm the same way with razors. It pains me how expensive they are. I don't remember the last time I bought shampoo either.

No shame in being cheap. :p
