Everybody wants to save a buck here or there, but would you dive into a dumpster to do it? Would you clip so many coupons the store practically pays you to take your groceries away? You've heard of the millionaire next door, but there might just be a proud cheapskate next door, too. To what lengths do extreme savers go to save money? And what impact does that have on the economy?

Nearly every weekend when summer hits, Northeast Ohio sidewalks and neighborhoods are filled with used goods for sale. At many of these garage sales are regulars who are on the hunt for something to add to their holiday decoration collection or help maintain their yard. Meet Gloria Hall, Carol Allds and their sisters who dedicate nearly every weekend to garage sale hunting. They drive to where ever a good sale is, and trunks are packed with finds by the end of the day. Learn more by watching the video produced by ideastream intern Melissa Prax.
