Packers punter once lived in a utility closet to save money

Tim Masthay knows the value of economy. 

The Green Bay Packers punter told Market Watch that he spent his sophomore year at the University of Kentucky living in a utility closet at just $100 a month in order to save some of his scholarship money. 

"By the time I graduated, I had saved $10,000," the 6-foot-1 200-pound economics major revealed — money that he used to purchase his wife-to-be's wedding ring. 

Now that the 29-year-old's been in the NFL for six years, here's hoping Masthay and his wife have allowed themselves a bigger place.
