The title's pretty self-explanatory. I'll start off: Guys at the range think I'm rollin' in money because I've got a couple of high-line firearms. I haven't bought a new T-shirt in 40 years. Come to think of it, coats and pants when I can find'em, too, are from Salvation Army or Goodwill. I think we've only bought two brand new vehicles in 45 years. One we had to, because Hurricane Katrina's flooding caused everything before 2005 to be of suspect pedigree with the exception of brand new 2006s; the other, in 1975, we were green peas and didn't know any better. I got a bag of "clean" once-used paper towels that I've dried my hands with, in the garage for wiping the floor, checking motor oils, etc. I run my cleaning fluids through an automotive paint strainer and use the the filtered solution as the "first wipe-down" before actually cleaning a firearm, or the engine oil off the drip pan. "Ed's Red" fan here (if you dunno what that is, Google it). I'll fill up the gas tank whenever I see a "bargain" if I'm at half a tank; cheap is cheap... I'm the plumber, electrician, painter, Jiffy Lube guy- if I can do it safely, I won't pay to have someone else do it. I'm sure there's other embarrassing "skims" I've pulled that my wife could name, but to me they're too second-nature to recall... LOL How 'bout ya'll?
