I will buy your Chelsea ticket for £50, then belt tightening will not be required (unless that's what you are in to)

1. Have you ever used the leftover milk from cereal to put in your coffee or tea?
2. Have you, or would you ever try, to haggle in a charity shop?
3. Have you ever re-used teabags?
4. Have you ever deliberately waited to charge your mobile phone at work to save on your home leccy bill?
5. Do you grab as many freebies as you can, even if you don't need the product being given away?
6. When in a restaurant where tipping's appropriate, do you round down the tip even if the service is good?
7. Have you ever taken sachets of sugar/condiments from restaurants or shampoos from hotels to use at home?
8. If it's yellow, do you 'let it mellow' (do you leave a tinkle unflushed) to cut water bills? If you don't have a water meter, would you if you did?
9. Have you ever taken anything home from a skip on the street?
10. Have you ever sneaked your own crisps, drinks or sweets into the cinema?
11. If splitting the bill based on 'who's had what', have you ever deliberately put in less than you should, knowing everyone will have to split the extra?
12. Have you ever bought own-brand goods then presented them in a box/container of the expensive stuff (rice puffs in a Rice Krispies box)?
13. If you gave someone a CD, DVD or computer game as a present would you listen, watch or play it first?
14. Have you ever, or would you consider using a 2-for-1 restaurant voucher on a first date?
15. When it's your round in the pub, have you ever manoeuvred yourself so you can't be found?
16. Do you have to get every last drop out of every bottle or tube, cutting it up and scraping it out if needs be?
17. Have you ever followed the shop assistant with the price reducing sticker machine around the supermarket?
18. Have you or would you, tell your kids that when an ice cream van plays music, it means it's run out of ice cream?
19. Have you ever received a present and then re-gifted it to someone else?
20. Ever saved an old diary to use again in the next identical calendar year? (Eg, 2026 will be the same as 2015.)
I can’t believe that anybody would answer “Yes” to questions 2, 3, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 or 20. Thirteen Nos.
That leaves seven questions which some people might answer Yes to.
1. I don’t take milk in coffee or tea so that’s a No for me
4. When I last worked for someone else mobile phones hadn’t been invented so that’s another No.
5. I grab only anything that I will be able to use. Another No
6. Being Australian I don’t tip under any circumstances. So, that’s another No.
7. At last a Yes. I have been known to take little shampoo bottles.
8. No. Too smelly.
13. No. they come in sealed packs.

So that means I scored -
"You are 4% tight"
"You need to tighten up - you're flushing money down the loo. Thrift is a virtue."
Being happy never goes out of style.

Is anybody going to admit the questions to which they answered "NO" or even "YES"?
1. Can't see anything wrong with that except for bits of cereal in your tea.
2. Haggling in a Charity Shop. Surely not.
3. Using second hand tea bags. Why?
4. I'm sure that happens all of the time.
5. I really can't understand why anybody would grab "freebies" when they were something they didn't want.
6. Tipping people who are paid to give good service. Why? We in Australia don't tip anybody.It is neither required or expected.
7. I don’t even take shampoo bottles anymore. We have so many of them in the bathroom cabinet which really need to be thrown out.
8. Saving 9 litres of water and leaving smelly urine in the toilet. Why bother?
10. Taking food to the cinema. I hate people who make noises eating rubbish in the cinema.
11. Deliberately put in less than you should. Cheating
12. Rice puffs in a Rice Krispies box? Cheating
13. If you gave someone a CD or whatever. It would be in a sealed package. Buy one for yourself.
14. Have you ever, or would you consider using a 2-for-1 restaurant voucher on a first date? Definitely not applicable. But I don't think I would.
15. Have you ever manoeuvred yourself so you can't be found? Cheating
16. cutting it up and scraping it out if needs be? Waste of time
17. Have you ever followed the shop assistant with the price reducing sticker machine around the supermarket? Has to be a joke.
18. Don’t ever lie to your children
19. If you don’t want it give it to a charity
20. Must be a joke.
