Saving Gets Serious in TLC's New Special EXTREME CHEAPSKATES

When it comes to money, there are those who save, those who are stingy, and then there are cheapskates. TLC shares four EXTREME CHEAPSKATES in an all-new special airing December 28 at 9/8c. From eating food destined for the trash to reusing toilet wipes, these people will stop at nothing to spend nothing.

Featured in the special are:

Huntington, VT's Roy unabashedly takes home other people's leftovers at his local restaurant, and goes dumpster diving to find an anniversary gift for his wife. His frugal ways are in support of running an animal rescue.

Angela, from Kansas City, MO, keeps her six children and husband debt-free by using reusable cloth toilet wipes, making their own cleaning supplies, and foraging for produce at the local park. She also participates in a babysitting club, anduses expired food from a salvage center to prepare a meal for the neighborhood families.

Accokeek, MD's Jeff and his wife take a "fiscal fast" five times year, where they will not spend any money in a week's time. During this time, they will only use product that is already in their house. Jeff will also take to his bike in search of loose change around town and use his findings to buy goats heads for dinner.

Jordon, in Branson, MI, uses bartering to save as much money as possible, offering up his skills - from manual labor to receipting a poem - to get anything from a free haircut to a donut. Having saved $20,000 on his own wedding, he's now trying to help his friends plan an engagement party without spending a dime.

EXTREME CHEAPSKATES is produced for TLC by Stephen David Entertainment.
