Martin Lewis was back on TV screens with money-saving tips on his new show Extreme Savers.
In the program on Wednesday (May 12) he interviewed people who had gone to dire lengths saving money – with one man collecting all his own water and another lad building his own house from scratch.
There was also the emotional tale of a woman who won the IVF treatment that resulted in her beautiful baby boy.
But one family's dedication to the wallet and eco-friendly lifestyle went just a mite too far in the eyes of many people watching at home.
Charlotte Jessop, a former maths teacher from Norfolk, revealed she has been using reusable toilet paper that she launders in the washing machine.
She explained: "It feels a little scary to start off with.
"We were using them as wet wipes for our kids and then we thought why should this change when they are out of nappies?
"If it's good enough for them it is for us."
The mum also ditched using sanitary pads made from plastic in favour of natural and washable cloth.
Discussing the out-there money-saving tip, Martin Lewis said the family had saved a whopping £400 on bog roll.

But many viewers were really not comfortable with the idea and some outright branded it "disgusting" when they commented on social media.
One person blasted: "Reusable toilet roll, jeez the money you save on toilet roll you need to spend on a new washing machine every time you wash those toilet wipes."
Someone else said: "No one should be reusing their toilet roll. That's gross."
Another viewer joked: "Who needs bog roll? I just sit naked on the lawn, lift my legs and pull myself along like a dog."
"Imagine putting the loo roll through the washing machine! I know we put dirty clothes in it but not that," commented a fourth user.
