3. Lying About Your Kids

Here is another case of lying about your children’s ages. There are plenty of restaurants that let children eat for free if they’re under a certain age. It seems like a good deal, but it invites people like this family to get their kids to act younger than they really are, just to get a free meal. It makes you wonder how often they got away with it.

2. A Free Ride Without The Quarter

You’ve seen those mechanical horses outside of stores. It costs 25 cents for a 30-second ride. But this dad didn’t want to waste the money, so he would end up just standing behind the horse and rocking it back and forth himself for as long as his kid wanted. More money is in his pocket, and his kid was happy.

1. Reusing Every Single Brick

Some people take the penny pinching to extremes. This person’s father had their garage demolished, and instead of carting it all away, he made his kids clean every single cement-covered brick with a pickax so that he could use them in the future. It took them almost a year to get it done, and the father only saved about $500. Talk about a cheapskate.
