A CHEAPSKATE family have saved a fortune by dining on roadkill and fashioning presents out of carcasses.
Fanatically frugal Vickie and John from Idaho, scour local roadsides for dead animals which they use to feed their hungry brood.
The couple, who were featured on Extreme Cheapskates on TLC, are so stingy they refuse to shell out cash for a telephone, a television or even new clothes for their children.
And when it comes to eating, they delight in tucking into a delicious meal made from fresh roadkill.
As the family enthusiastically hunts for animal corpses they chant: "Here we go for roadkill.
"Here we go for roadkill Eat meat."
John told TLC: "My mission is to find good roadkill.
"If it's fresh and good, well, I'm a butcher. I have no problem eating something fresh and good."
Vicky added: "It saves me hundreds of dollars."
Even more money is saved at Christmas and birthdays — for roadkill carcasses and skin also provide material to make gifts.
John told the network: "Vickie can make gloves and little hats and things, and we can save money by using them for gifts.
"Furs are expensive, but if you can find it along the road, it can be a lot cheaper."
