Reality TV show - Your chance to be a star!

Each year the Easter Bunny brings you chocolate candy, peeps and  jelly beans. I guess that's okay, but the Dude can do the Easter Bunny one better! How would you like to be on television and be the next big reality TV star? Over the years you've watched plenty of folks just like us become television stars it's your turn! 

Recently I was contacted by a major television production company  requesting I publicize a casting call for their television reality show. They're looking for people who live an "extremely" frugal lifestyle. I think there might be a few of us who proudly meet that criteria around here. The loyal followers of "MoneyintheGarage" are wisely frugal! Why else would we get up early every Saturday morning and trudge around garage sales to look for deals? 

Below is the casting call. If you think you meet the studio's description, I'd strongly encourage you to go for it! You never know, right? Why not be on the next big reality TV show? All I ask is when you're on stage accepting the Emmy for best new reality television star, you thank me and mention my website. (Right after you thank your family and the Academy.)  

Good luck and have a Happy Easter, Passover and Spring to all !

Hello Dude,
 I work in casting at a major NYC television production company. We’re casting a series on a major television network that follows families, couples or individuals who live well on very little. 
Below is a casting notice for your review, and to post on your blog or forward to interested parties. If interested please contact me at

Do you have a family member or friend who knows how to stretch their dollar to its absolute breaking point? Does the idea of spending money on anything other than what is ABSOLUTELY necessary make them sick to their stomach? Do they love showing off how very little they spend?
Then we want to meet them! TLC is currently casting for a second season of a hit show and is seeking families, couples or individuals who live well on very, VERY little.  In this day and age, many people want to save more and spend less. But for them, saving every penny possible borders on OBSESSION!
If this sounds like someone you know, please NOMINATE them by sending an email to SECONDSEASONCASTING@GMAIL.COM the following information:
And tell us a little about their lifestyle and why you think they made the decision to live this way. Please give specific examples and please include photos of them.

Pin It now!


  1. You know...I got the same email..but I'm not sure it's legit. I work with a few companies where I do surveys for them etc..and there is always more contact information. I emailed her back asking which company she's with, where are they located and more contact info. And that once I get a little more from her, I'd be happy to share more about us. :)

    I'm not giving up my address and phone number to some random gmail address! ;)

    1. So many cynics in today's world! If American Pickers Frank Fritz and Mike Wolfe had that attitude, they'd still be unknowns driving down some lonely back road in Iowa! :P

      Fear not, I checked them out and had numerous communication with these folks. They're a NYC production company working for The Learning Channel. The show they're producing was on last year. They're currently recruiting for the new season. The method of reaching out to like-minded websites is a common way for production companies to recruit candidates for their television show.

      So no need to worry on this one. ; )
