Has anyone had one of those moments when you realise that perhaps you've just had a thrifty idea too far?

I've spent the last two days travelling on trains for work and making sure I charge my phone and laptop up en route. Yesterday when my toothbrush started flashing it's low battery light for a brief second I considered taking it and the charger on the journey with me.

When pil leave their kitchen light on and I can see it from the lounge I get twitchy.

Sometimes I get up and turn it off for them.

I lived abroad for a while and freecycling from the communal bins was an accepted practice. People would leave usable items behind them and you never knew what might come up.

still look at skips as I pass, although I know it doesn't work the same in the UK!
