Penny pincher awards

Michelle Singletary, personal finance columnist for the Washington Post, wanted to find out who is the biggest cheapskate America.

The Top 3 winners:

The husband who gave his wife subscriptions to many of her favorite magazines on Christmas 2000. He scoured yard sales to find Conde Nast Traveler, Vegetarian Gourmet, Bon Appetit and other magazines and news magazine publications dating back from 1992.

The second place winner goes to another romantic couple. Seems the husband takes his wife to Wal-Mart for her birthday. They visit the greeting card aisle where he chooses the most expensive card on the rack. He presents it to his wife, she reads it and places it back on the display.

Third place went to BJ, an 11-year old who washes and reuses his drinking straws.
