I’m super cheap frugal. I love a good deal and I hate to spend more than I have to, but sometimes being frugal is just foolish.
Take a look at this super foolish frugal attempt:
What is it? Allow me to explain…
Years ago I bought a lint roller. When my roller ran out I went shopping for a replacement. The refills were cheaper than a whole new roller, but the refill I bought didn’t end up fitting my old roller.
So instead of paying an extra $1-2 dollars, I bought a refill that didn’t fit my roller. It was a pain to use. When we moved last June I finally threw out the roller, but I kept the sticky sheets! Crazy, right??
I stuck the roller refill in a plastic bag and it sat there for the past 10 months unused. When I purged 48 items from my bathroom last month, this bag was ridiculously hard for me to throw away! Why?!?! I hadn’t used it for at least 10 months!
Don’t be like me folks. If only I had paid the extra money for a complete lint roller set… *sigh*
When have you been foolishly frugal?
