I admit my bias here: this show is a guilty pleasure for me. I watched the first season on Netflix and I was pretty anxious to see the new second season. When I stayed home sick from work one day, I thought I would indulge myself as a treat with purchasing the second season.

Unlike other shows that may cause me to shop, this show does the opposite for me. I have certainly not done the extreme things exampled in the show but it has made me reconsider purchases. I went through a online clothes shopping phase and (I think) it was partly stopped by the show. Obviously a good budget and goals/motivation were the tools I used but i would credit the show for nudging me along the process. As someone with a heavy load of student loans, it was great to see that there are things I can do, now. All these little buying decisions add up as either expenses ill likely forget a out in a year (will I really remember buying that new pair of jeans over taking that 10 day vacation?) or saving for things that will make my life better/easier/happier.

This show won't necessary go down in history anymore than the typical "reality" show, but what I gained from it really impacted me for the better. If you're stuck in a financial rut thinking that there are no other corners to cut, this show will show you otherwise. It's really just a decision of how far you are willing to go and to each his own.

After watching this show I have been able to cut my electric bill in half by turning the fuse box in my house off every night. I have also saved mom by walking around and asking neighbors for free food while living in my $750,000 home! Lets not even mention what I have shaved off of my funeral expenses.

Just joking!!! The people on this show are crack pots, this ranked up there with Honey Booboo! Its amazing!

I love seeing how other people conserve, reuse and make due with what they have. We need more of that today. I do not however like it when someone uses the term "cheapskate" when they really mean "mooch". There's a difference between saving money and taking advantage of others. Some of these people don't seem to know the difference. I don't applaud those who abuse others' generosity in order to save themselves a buck. (On a side note, I'm a big fan of Jeff Yeager! Keep going strong man!)

The show felt much more staged than season one. There were some really extreme cheapskates that were interesting to watch. I did not like to see when children were forced to suffer through the parents/relatives extremely cheap ways. The show had more structure and each episode more variety than season one - for example, there was an episode about a bride's mother trying to pay for a cheapskate wedding, and another about a cheapskate couple trying to sell their house.

That's what mostly what I got from these cheapskates. If they clipped coupons these cheapskates would be able to afford deodorant and another toothbrush. You can find coupons everywhere and not spend a penny.It is nice to see a show were people are saving money instead of spending it.

The revolt against long Amazon reviews continues.

I liked the first one or two episodes of this out of sheer voyeurism (i.e. why in the heck would people chose to live like this?). I think it is socio-economically interesting to see this lifestyle on the heels of an economic decline. That said, I think this show only exists because we're slightly twisted viewers. I couldn't watch more than a few episodes because the digging in garbage and rotten food nauseated me. I actually think TLC made a huge mistake with this because several of the people need psychological help and this ended up being rather exploitive (yes, I am equipped with the training to say that).

Everything is completely staged. After further investigation, most of these people are just fame mongers looking to score their own reality show or record deal. I was hoping for an at least semi-earnest show that offered practical bits of wisdom regarding frugality. TLC programming is a waste of time and I wish I could get a refund for this. I could only stomach 3 episodes before deciding watching a poorly scripted soap opera was out of the scope of my documentary/reality taste.
