Do you bake in your car or dishwasher, ration bathroom tissue, re-use disposable plates or recycle bath water? Do you do everything yourself rather than buy anything new? Are you an extreme couponer?

If so, I want to talk to you for a future column. 

I'm looking for Tucson's cheapest cheapskates, die hard do-it-yourselfers and extreme couponers. If you're ever accused of being any of those things, please email me at with the following information:


What makes you a cheapskate?

What is your cheapest tip?

How much money do you think it saves you?

Phone number and best time to reach you.
