Do you squeeze a nickle so hard that the buffalo poops? Do you still look for penny candy? Is your idea of an elegant date getting fries AND onion rings with the burgers?

Take this test to see how much of a tightwad you are:

How did you find out about me, Valois? Just because I had to borrow a quarter from my first wife on our first date to get 2 cups of coffee doesn't mean that I am cheap. Just inexpensive.

I tried it twice but got no score when I submitted it. Perhaps I am too perfect

You're anything but cheap, Sue. By the way, I polished the plaque that QVC has in the lobby with your name on it. The US Postal Service is plannng a day of recognition for you.

There's no known cure for QVCitis, is there?

That is so sweet of you, I was so tempted to visit your area in order to pay homage to the great QVC this past Spring instead of travelling to the Deep South. The best I found there was a J C Penney outlet store, Walmart and Thrift America(?) Not quite the same.

My score was 8, which makes me "well balanced".

I guess I am in the squeeze a nickel until the buffalo poops category! I am the clearance queen! I also love thrift stores, Dollar stores, etc. I live for the thrill of a bargain!
