Saving up leftovers for several weeks, then making a "casserole" from them.
Also saving the dripping from roasts in a bowl in the fridge shudders.

Cleaning, washing clothes, baking and having a meal on the table at 6pm. Bizarre grin.

My Mum - washing suacepans in different sink to other dishes, rinsing dishes before she washes them or puts them in the dishwasher.

MIL - cleaning behind the TV weekly, washing kichen floor daily, keeping her iron in the box it came in, still in the plastic bag with the wee black tie round it....
