The Penny Pincher

I once heard of this guy who was a real penny pintcher. Every Christmas he would go out and by his kids and wife gifts for Christmas. He would take all the gifts up stairs and put them away in the closet under lock and key. Come Christmas morning he would have everyone sit down stairs around the Christmas tree. Then he would take a shopping bag upstairs and place one gift in it and bring it downstairs to whoever it belonged to. He would repeat this over and over until all the gifts where handed out using the same shopping bag. He said that there was no sense in buying wrapping paper because it would just get torn apart and burned.

I wonder what he did if he bought a big gift? Or maybe he didn’t buy big gifts that would not fit into his shopping bag.

Thankfully his penny-pinching wasn't so extreme that he didn't buy gifts.

Maye the guy didn't know how or like to wrap Christmas gifts.
