My Frugal Miser: Stooping to a New Low - Scavenging after the Shareholder's Meeting
You just might be frugal if, instead of being embarrassed by it, you are proud to show off your collection of Coca Cola bottle caps that you scoured for after the 2010 Berkshire Hathaway shareholder's meeting.
That's right, I admit it. I stayed after the meeting until security ran me off. See, they gave out pastries and beverages for breakfast before the meeting. I noticed the Minute Maid juice had My Coke Reward points on the caps and decided I'd hunt for abandoned empties.
Not only did I find caps, but I also took home 6 unopened bottles of juice and 3 pastries. The caps alone have a value of 168 points, which could be redeemed for a one year magazine subscription or 5 free 20 oz. sodas.
