Extreme Cheapskates TV show: Woman doesn't use toilet paper or do laundry

Posted: Updated:

Have you ever made cutbacks because of the tough economy?

One woman named Kay is causing a stir after she appeared on TLC's Extreme Cheapskates.

Kay gave producers an inside look on how she cuts costs.

Kay said she stopped using toilet paper and quit doing laundry years ago.

"Whenever I have dirty clothes, I try to wash them while I'm showering," she said.

In the episode, Kay said she has no need for toilet paper products. She replaced toilet paper with a squirt bottle filled with water.

The video clip shows Kay placing her clothes in the shower and lathering them with a free sample of detergent. She wrings out the clothes after she washes them, and hangs them on a rod to dry.

She says doing the laundry without a washer and dryer saves her $6 a month.

Her video created a lot of stir on social media sites; we want to know what you think. Let us know on Facebook.

Full episodes of Extreme Cheapskates will start Oct. 16.
