A self-made US millionaire goes to toilet in a bottle to save money.

Despite owning several houses, Victoria Hunt urinates in the container and then empties it in her garden to save money on her monthly water bill, and she also puts her freezer on a timer to ensure it only runs 12 hours a day, takes showers at her gym and even forages for food in her local dumpster to conserve cash.

She told The Huffington Post: "Some people like pedicures, I enjoy ways to be frugal and save money.

"My house had landscaping [when I bought it], and I explored if my yard was edible. Most flowers are edible, it turns out. Everything on your lawn that is a weed, like clover and purslane, are all edible."

Victoria, 51, is to be featured on upcoming TLC TV series 'Extreme Cheapskates'.
