Well usually I'm cheap because I've got little-to no dough but when I do acquire some, I'm usually pretty fast spending it…

I'm another one that it depends on the cashflow. Seeing as it's likely we're going on strike this week, I am cheap on everything right now =\

I still tend to be on the cheaper side when I do have a good cashflow, though. I only landed a full-time job a few years ago, before that, it was always “you never know when you're not going to be working anymore,” and that's still stuck with me.

But I've been happy with an inexpensive lifestyle, anyway. A small apartment, cheap hobbies, and few possessions. The things I will spend money on without thinking about it too much are gifts and going out to eat. And also a new couch, but I don't go buying new couches every week.

I'm cheap with things the kids are going to ruin.

My living room furniture is all second hand and now looks tatty. I'm looking forward to getting a nice leather reclining sofa set next year once they are past the ruin everything in sight stage.

I'm cheap with alcohol….my friends like to be the ones to say “first round is on me”. I just make sure I talk to them at seperate times and make sure they THINK it's my first round.

Let me know what age that is, because my 13yo still uses the sofa and her clothes as a napkin and I recently discovered she has been hiding trash between the cushions. I think you're only allowed to have nice things after they move off to college… or in some cases just move off.

My five year old is fine, but the younger two… not so much. I often find my two year old will find a marker pen and draw over the monitor. Little sod, hen I tell people they say, well where did you leave the maker pen? they all live in a set of draws located on top of my desk, he climbes up my chair onto the desk and wrecks havoc. My printer/scanner is out of action as he has managed to jam a toy in it, in future I will take him with me when i go to the toilet so he can't wreck things while I drain the snake.

That's the one that will be using the sofa for a napkin and trashcan when he's 13…

I relight the fire in my woodstove using whatever coals are left and a lighter.

I'd reuse my toothpaste rinse water, but my wife watches me too closely. j/k
