Mayor Bloomberg may not be too fussed over the city's startling income gap, but most ordinary New Yorkers have taken notice with small sacrifices to combat these hard times.
But one woman appears to be stretching her dollar a bit too far. A new series on TLC, aptly titled "Extreme Cheapstakes," features Kay, a New Yorker who refuses to shell out for laundry costs. She even forgoes purchasing toilet paper.
Instead, Kay insists on using her hands, water, and soap to clean below the belt after she urinates. And as she explains, if she takes "a dump," she wipes herself down with soap.
Why? She "doesn't believe on spending money on something that you're just going to throw away." Dear mayor, please take notice.
