A WOMAN has taken to TikTok to reveal all the cheap things her husband does to cut back on spending.
Amber Horne has a series on her TikTok channel dedicated to outing her husband’s ridiculous ways to save money.
The couple live in the US with their two teenage sons and are mum and dad to five kids in total.
The pair regularly post content regarding her husband John’s ridiculous ways to save money.
In one video John admits: “When I go up and down my stairs, I make sure to use the outside of the steps to reduce the overall wear and tear on the carpet, so it will last years longer.”
John then demonstrates his special walk for going up and down the stairs and Amber admits John is always nagging the family to do it as well.
The video has been viewed over 70,000 times and John’s obsession with saving money doesn’t end there.
He even goes so far as to making the family haul rubbish to the dump rather than pay for a rubbish collection service and cutting off TV services to their home.

Amber even recalls one time when she went to her gym only to find out he had cancelled her subscription in another attempt to save a few bucks.
In another video John shares his ‘savvy’ way to reduce the family’s water bill when it comes to flushing the toilet.
John takes the back cover off the toilet and fills a two litre bottle with water and puts it inside to take up room.
This way, John says, the toilet won’t use as much water each time you flush.
Another water saving tip he recommends is to rinse all your dishes at once and make a pile of them before turning off the water rand loading them into the dishwasher.
John says this will save lots of money in the long run instead of rinsing each item and putting it in the dishwasher as the water is unnecessarily running for longer in between rinsing each item.
The series of videos sharing John’s money saving tips has over 50 videos currently, viewers have been impressed by some of his hacks, but others, not so much.
Users were not impressed by his carpet walk, one wrote: “That’s super cheap.. he’s got some smart ones but sheesh.”
“So he’ll just wear out the outsides of the carpet, doesn’t really make a difference. And why is he wearing shoes in the house,” said another person.
A third viewer wrote: “That’s got to be the worst one yet.”
Plus, a pair of self-confessed cheapskates reveal they make their children look through bins for sweets.
