Admirably Frugal, or Just Crazy?

December 8, 2008

Like everyone, I’m watching my money these days. I may have carried it to extremes today.

I went out to grab some soup at One on One, the unusual bike shop/cafe in the North Loop. When I went to put money in the meter, I noticed that the one next to me had 12 minutes still on it.

So I got back in my car and moved it to that meter to save a quarter.

Hmmm. I fear that this sort of behavior could lead to saving one’s toenail clippings and keeping dozens of cats in the house.
