I’m a proud curmudgeon – my husband and I share dental floss and want to be buried in the same coffin

A pair is so cheap they share toothbrushes, dental floss, and even deodorant.

And if that was too much for you, you want to be buried together to save on funeral expenses.

Karissa and Rick think they are two of the best curmudgeons

Rick and Karissa, who starred on TLC’s Extreme Cheapskates, revealed the excessive measures they take to save money, leaving many in complete disbelief.

At the start of the day, the couple hops in the shower together — and not to get hot and heavy, but to save money on water and bath products.

“If we shower together, it’s exactly two minutes,” Rick revealed, adding, “there’s no tissue at all.”

Their extreme bathroom routine — which consists of Rick using Karissa’s foaming shampoo on his hair and the same razor on his armpits, legs and face — will save them hundreds of dollars.

A bottle of shampoo lasts more than six months and they use the same razor for the same amount of time.

“By keeping their shared shower short, they were able to cut their water bill in half,” the narrator revealed, as video footage showed the pair sharing cotton swabs for their ears.

Additionally, Karissa and Rick share the same toothbrush, deodorant, and even their dental floss.

The couple will also go so far as to log how often each of them goes to the bathroom because it means they owe more money on the water bill.

Although the couple share products in the bathroom, each man is to himself when it comes to food.

“Every week we have a $25 budget for groceries,” Rick said, adding that they share the cost of the food they share.

However, if a person uses more than their half, they owe money to the other person.

The couple goes as far as labeling their eggs, six per person, and if one person’s eggs cracked, then that person is out of luck.

“We’re really competitive when it comes to going cheap,” Karissa said.

A REAL SAVINGS

Karissa and Rick consider themselves to be real curmudgeons and plan for every possible event, including death.

“We have decided to arrange our funerals now because that way we avoid any inflation,” Karissa said to the cameras.

“Statistically men die before women and I don’t want Rick to die and then have me on the bill, I can get them for half the cost now.”

But they were serious about saving and asked if it would be possible to bury her in a wooden casket with no pillows or frills.

“We just want a funeral, a funeral, one of everything. If he dies first because he’s older and a man, you can bury him and then exhume him when I die and bury me with him,” Karissa told the funeral home, speaking to them and explaining to them that she was exaggerating by doing so would save costs.

In the end, the couple arranged two funerals for the price of one.
