US woman demonstrates her husband’s money-saving techniques

US woman demonstrates her husband’s money-saving techniques

No doubt we all have a cost-cutting trick or two up our sleeve which helps keep household costs down.

But this woman reckons her husband is as cheap as they come, and he wouldn't have it any other way — because he says it saves them a fortune, reported.

Amber Horne, from Oregon, US, and has built up quite the fan base on TikTok with over 740,000 followers thanks to her husband's thrifty ways.

In fact, the mom-of-five has dedicated a whole series to her fun-loving hubby titled "my husband's so cheap..."

Happily married for 25 years, the hilarious couple appear in the clips together as the dad-of-five proudly demonstrates his best money-saving techniques.

In one clip, Amber revealed that her husband will never throw away paper towel and will instead hang it on the clothes line to dry so he can use it again.

The frugal father reckons it saves a lot of money too as he demonstrates clipping the sheets of paper to a self-made line in the kitchen.

Don't think he bought one just for the job though, oh no, because Amber said they're "too cheap to buy a clothes line" and that they "use yarn instead."

The cost-cutting dad also reuses aluminum foil after using it too — he simply gives it a wipe down, flattens it out and pops it in the drawer for next time.

Although Amber said she will always get a new sheet of foil when she needs it, proving his hack, well, pointless.

In episode ten of the video series the couple revealed how they save on buying pricey tomato ketchup — and it has nothing to do with checking out the supermarket sales either.

The fun-loving dad said: "Whenever you go to the local market or deli just grab a few extra packets and refill our ketchup container."

The frugal dad will stock up on ketchup sachets when he's out and use them to refill his own at home.

This way the Horne family never has to buy more ketchup again with Amber confirming "yep, he really does that".

He also has a way to cut down the cost of milk as well, and with five teenage kids it's probably needed.

The frugal dad will buy a whole milk and then add water to dilute it, which makes the milk "last a lot longer."
