    Default I think i have now seen/heard it all.. LOL

    Just chilling in front of foxtel and watching extreme cheapstakes...This couple identifies themselves as middle class and own their own home. They have 4 children I think it is... and to save $20 a month they cut up material and use the squares as toilet paper ! OMFG that's disgusting.... surely if you can have 4 children you can afford toilet paper... Oh im flabbergasted ! she hot washes the squares... wouldn't that cost more than $20 a month?

    Certainly not my cup of tea, but I know it's a growing trend in the more crunchy types.

    Maybe she uses rain water heated via solar panels?

    Definitely not where I would be looking to cut back to save money either way.
