Al Baker was forced to make cutbacks when his business folded leaving him penniless and still needing to feed his family. Now he has revealed the intense lengths he went to lower your expenses in case they might help others.
Al said: “I’ve tried it, and it’s sort of OK… obviously, it is a weaker cup of tea than the primary cuppa, but kind of passable.
“I feel it will be higher for making iced tea, as you do not need quite a lot flavour, and based on that, again, it’s on the list as an extreme frugal contender!”
Alternatively, people can take advantage of freebies after they stay at hotels.
Al said: “If you happen to go and stay at a hotel, make certain you nick the complimentary tea and occasional from the room, in addition to the guest shampoo and soap.”

Al says growing your individual fruit and veg from leftovers could help people save quite a bit on their food bill.
The dad who runs The Penny Pincher blog said: “This could be very achievable and is something I already do.
“For instance, take a spring onion, cut off the basis, and place it in water or soil, and it should re-grow, which you’ll be able to then use for food, and re-grow again!”
The blogger has also spoken to Express.co.uk previously about ways people can earn money from home. (link)
He told Express.co.uk: ”If you might have an area in a bustling place, comparable to central London, with costly automobile parks, or near an airport or tourist attraction, you’ll be able to earn so much greater than you’ll should you rented out your space in a suburban location.
“Lately, with bills on the rise, every penny counts in order that extra cash might pay for extra groceries, perhaps a treat, comparable to a cinema trip, or possibly a number of drinks on the local pub, or a takeaway, that otherwise, you could not have been in a position to afford.”
Hiring out one’s automobile parking space is a straightforward solution to make extra cash to offset the rising cost of living but not everyone has a spare automobile parking space.
On this case, Al recommends market research because it pays around £50 per hour.
