I'm Not Really A Cheap Skate Am I?

Was away from home last week, twas nice to get back and empty my suitcase though.

I discovered I had left my sponge bag with all the necessaries, no toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant so on so forth obviously I had to replace them, simple enough until it came to the sponge, everywhere I went for some reason couldn't find a bath sponge & wasn't prepared to pay upwards of £2.00 for a tiny 'travelling sponge' was about to give in and then lo and behold in the car accessories depth of a local pound shop three car sponges for the price of one.
Now fair does a sponge for Washing cars is far too big for the bathroom but cut in half I now have six sponges for the paltry price of £1!
Call me a tight arse if you want but with the amount of time I spend actually washing I'll probably never buy another sponge again, (unless of course I go away for another six times and leave my sponge bag and contents behind).

Hey Less, since you were in the car accessories department you could have also picked up some Armor All and some Simonize so you could have a nice shiny luster.

Could I sponge one of them off you, Less? I'm prepared to flannel you about your frugality.
