    I've read some personal finance blogs and books and it seems I can't stop thinking about frugality, it's probably an ingrained psychological mindset that I already had and it's just beginning to develop itself. Anyway I'm finding myself thinking about extreme ways to save a few cents here a few bucks there and I'm really entertaining the thought of doing it. If you've got any extreme frugal thoughts then please share them, seriously I find it quite therapeutic.

    This thread is so wrong that it's right!

    I sometime get these extreme frugal thoughts! The one that keeps on coming into my head is living in a garage or car so I could rent my house out and make serious money, I don't think my wife would entertain the idea though!

    Found this really cool video on YouTube where people are converting their garages to living spaces! wish I thought of this when I was single.

    I get these thoughts from time to time, this is a great way to release as I seldom have a conversation with my friends about these kinds of things. LOL.

    Anyway my extreme frugal tip is doing all my laundry at the local library and washing myself there. My library has an abundant supply of soap which would work well as a detergent, I could wash a shirt or trouser each day and bath myself with a cloth. I could do my entire beauty regime here and save money on detergent, hot water and soap! Sorry if this is a little too extreme, the release felt good!

    This thread definitely relates, I also sometimes think of some of the most extreme ways of saving money, lately I've been thinking about living in my car so I can rent my apartment out! I could join a gym for keeping myself clean and doing the laundry. I could probably save thousands of dollars this way. Another question, why do we get these extreme thoughts? I thought I was the only crazy one here.

    Wow, this is extreme and fun. One thought that popped into my head was going to restaurants and fast food takeouts and ask for leftovers. As a person who dines out a lot I have seen so many people asking for leftovers and the restaurant owners are happy to give them to help out. If I can find 50 restaurants and then rotate then I could probably save a lot of money on food. As long as I thoroughly heat the leftovers it should be fine. If I could do this 4 days a week then I could cut my food bill in half.

    Check this vid out! if a bear can get away with it then why not?

    Whenever I visit a public building I get tempted to take extra toilet rolls or hand washes, I know it's theft which is why I don't do it but I guess there might be people who do. We go through a lot of toilet paper at home, I'm guessing I could save around $20 per month if I did this. (I Wont)

    I sometimes charge my laptops, cell phones, rechargeable lamps at work so I don't have charge them at home, I'm probably saving peanuts but it just gives me a buzz!

    I do this all the time, I charge everything from my laptop, cell phone, digital camera, and even the lamps so I don't have to use electricity at home.
