Thing is, Livin Large talk makes me nervous. I believe this is because one of my household duties is making sure the bills are paid. Can you relate?
Frugality, on the other hand, is the way to my heart. That and a clean kitchen. So recently, The Man did real good and I have to give him his just due.
When we moved into our new place on the shores of Lake Chatuge, the previous owner had left behind a propane tankless, Char-Broil Grill. Tom cleaned up the grill and then..instead of buying a shiny new propane tank...
He was at the landfill and spied someone throwing away a propane tank. Right, that isn't protocol for acceptable household waste for sure. So the fellow working at the dump was OK with The Man taking the dirty, empty propane tank.
The Man brought the tank home and cleaned it up. Yes, I said cleaned it up. Personally, I think it's superfluous to clean up an empty propane tank, but he did. Then we took it to the Bi-Lo where you got a $4.00 off if you exchanged an empty tank for a full one with your Bi-Lo card.
1 new propane tank would have cost $55.00. 1 propane tank exchanged for a full one at Bi-Lo was $16.98.
So we are now grilling at a total OOP (out of pocket) cost of $16.98!
Way to go The Man!
