“When people say that I’m cheap I say ‘Thank you, yes, I am‘” – Rosanna Tran is pinching pennies wherever she can and she’s not afraid to admit it!
The lengths that some people go to to save money really can be shocking but the families featured on a new TLC programme aren’t just cheap, they’re So Freakin’ Cheap!
Dumpster diving, getting creative and wedding budgets under $1000, the TLC show shines a light on the lifestyles of people who would rather do many other things than spend their hard earned wages. Rosanna Tran describes her family as ‘Crazy Cheap Asians‘ (a take on Crazy Rich Asians) and viewers are about to find out why!

So Freakin’ Cheap: The Tran family
The Tran family are one of the featured families on So Freakin’ Cheap season 1.
During the show’s sneak preview, the mother of the family can be seen explaining that because their electric garage door costs 12 cents to open and close, they only open it and close once a day.
She also states that “dumpster diving is a lifestyle”, but by the look on her children’s faces, being so frugal isn’t that enjoyable.
The Tran family consists of six people. The mother of the family, Rosanna, is on Instagram, as are children Elizabeth, Brandon and Charisma.
