Utah – A frugal student who has been known to dive in dumpsters for second-hand clothes and use homemade deodorant and toothpaste, was awarded $10,000 in pennies for being the ‘Ultimate Cheapskate’. Jennifer Hillam, 21, from the University of Utah, won first place in Zions Bank’s online reality show Cheapster, which tested 12 college goers on their money-saving skills.  A forklift was hired to drop Miss Hillam’s glittering 3.5ton, prize fund at The Gateway mall in Salt Lake City, where she told KSL.com: ‘I didn’t think that I was the cheapest, but I’m pretty bad and it’s paid off.’ Explaining the contest, a spokesman from the company, which is headquartered in Utah, said: ‘We’re out to find the cheapest college student, these students are known for being penny-pinchers.’ Other than dumpster diving and using homemade cosmetics, Miss Hillam also proudly uses air vents on local buses to dry her hair, freezes leftover food, and makes use of free facilities on the university campus. She said to ABC4 News: ‘I do some pretty ridiculous things and once I started telling people about them, they kind of thought I was a little crazy. But hey, I’ll keep doing it.’

Who wouldn’t want to party with this chick, huh? Homemade toothpaste, homemade deodorant, second hand clothes, using air vents to dry her hair. Sounds like a boatload of fun. Probably smells great too. Not to mention has a ton of friends and is really popular. Because it’s totally normal to dive headfirst into a dumpster to find an outfit to wear out that night. Nothing odd about that.

In all seriousness I think I’d rather be full on homeless than do shit this broad does. Like I’d rather use no deodorant or toothpaste than use homemade deodorant and toothpaste. I’d rather wear the same clothes every day than pick mine out of the trash. I’d rather have wet hair 24/7 than stand in front of public air vents like an asshole waiting for it to dry. It’s not even like she’s saving a lot of money. Those things are like the cheapest things you ever have to buy. I think we all know what holidays she celebrates…
