So I was reading over at "The Digerati Life," her post "I'm Frugal, so Why Can't I save," about a cheapskate quiz she took.
So, I had to try out the quiz and see how much of cheapskate, I really am. Now I always thought of myself as being pretty frugal, but not cheapskate, so would the test prove out that way. Below, is the answer they gave me for the 21 points I received on the quiz.
You've got your wily ways, but you're not wackily withholding. You're practical, and interested in saving a few pennies -- but not to the point, say, where you'd risk a trip to the pokey (far as we know, grooming your hair in-store with said store's unpaid-for products is petty pilfering -- though we doubt Death Row would be the end result).
You also wisely weigh all factors in making monetary decisions -- i.e., if it saves you a sou or two, is it worth the time, trouble or perhaps loss of your good standing with others? Your final decision may not always be 100 percent on the money -- but 100 percent is neither a necessary or obtainable goal.
You embody an admirable balance between living large and living lean -- living la vida in-between.
Why not take the test and tell me what kind of results you got? Do you feel the answer was pretty much correct or totally wrong? I would love to hear your thoughts on this test.
