Looking for "funny frugal stories"

Recommended Posts

I'm writing a book that has a sub-plot of the main character (a wife and mother of two young kids) tries to embark on new, slightly "adventurous" ways to save money.


I'm looking for situations where:

1) What she tries is kinda wacky, humorous, and/or over the top, and maybe makes her family go, "Whaaa ...?" I was even thinking of having her go dumpster diving, but decided that was too gross.


2) Where the idea "backfires." Things go wrong, and the whole attempt either does nothing, or worse, ends up costing her money for some reason.


Any ideas? Anything like that happen to you or someone you know? Or are you more creative than I am and just have some ideas? Thanks so much!
