Dance Frugal funnies

I am thinking that alot of us have funny stories about when we tried to be frugal, what are your stories? My mother's frugal story that we can now laugh at, now being the key word. I grew up with a single mother and money was really tight. One time she saved all of the pieces of soap and tried to melt them in the microwave into a new bar..and the microwave was ruined, OUCH...

My Grandmother tells me this story once in awhile:
A long, long time ago when she was still young and recently married, so wanted to make cherry pie with some cherries she had. Well, she didn't quite know how to make a pie and just had the notion that the cherries need to go inside a pie crust. So she lays out the pie crust and then fills it with cherries. Nothing else, just cherries. She covers it and bakes it. Well, when she pulled out the pie, it rattled Needless to say she threw it out before anyone found out

I used to save grey water in a bucket in the shower. I would use the water for watering plants or flushing the toilet. BTW, Dh thought I was nuts. Well once a cap from a shaving gel container fell in the bucket and I did not know. UNTIL, I poured the water in the toilet to flush it and the cap came out and clogged the toilet! Dh had to replace the toilet because it was stuck where we could not get the cap! Trying to be frugal cost me big that day!
