'Extreme Cheapskates': Millionaire Forages For Food, Pees In Bottles (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Most people have an image in their heads of what a millionaire lifestyle would be like. Well, the latest episode of "Extreme Cheapskates" throws that fantasy right out the window and into the woods -- where Victoria forages for food. According to her boyfriend, Victoria is a millionaire. Perhaps she got that way by never spending a cent. Ever.

She's so beyond frugal that she pees in bottles to avoid having to flush, showers at a gym -- despite her shower working just fine -- and uses appliances that are nearly fifty years old, except that she doesn't even always do that. To save on costs, she cooked a meal for her family on a makeshift stove outside

And then there's how she gets her food. Victoria was proud that she gets her food from a combination of dumpster diving and foraging in the woods "for wild edibles."

Perhaps it wasn't surprising that the meal didn't go over all that well. Her daughter-in-law was particularly put off when Victoria revealed that she forages for the food.
