Weird guy reckons mineral water is cheaper than tap
You might remember Lee Beaumont. He was the guy who turned his phone into a premium rate number to make money off cold callers. Well, he’s at it again. This time he’s discovered that using bottled mineral water for your daily ablutions can actually work out cheaper than tap water.
Mr Beaumont, who lives in stubborn survivalist frugality in Leeds without a gas supply or plates (he uses disposable tableware to save on the washing up) discovered that he was only using one unit of water a month. That unit cost £3, but service charges from the water company were £14 on top of that. So instead, he buys £14 of mineral water a month, saving £3.
To save even more, he showers at the gym or at friends’ houses, and flushes the toilet with the water in his dog’s bowl. He’s even been told by his dentist that his teeth are better since he started brushing them with spring water.
‘With gas, electricity, water and pretty much all household bills increasing month on month, I’ve decided to cut down and go to drastic measures to save vast amounts of money.’ He said.
Hmm. Consumer champion, or strange guy that smells funny and has his dinner on a paper plate? You decide…
