Even Cheaper Than I Am!!!
My husband got me a present this week. Knowing my current ban on buying and also hearing this guy on the radio he knew I had to have this book! He ordered it from a secondhand seller on Amazon but it came new today.
Jeff Yeager is even cheaper than I am. And a lot more funny. From the first page he had me laughing over a reduced-for-quick-sale pot roast (something I can totally relate to!) and his wit is present throughout (well at least to page 45 anyway, I just got the book around 4 pm this afternoon!)
But he's not all fun and games. His book, The Ultimate Cheapskate's Road Map to True Riches (subtitled: A practical (and fun) guide to enjoying life more by spending less) is a book after my own heart. He's not about earning more, but spending less and increasing the quality of your life (a theme which you MAY have noticed is ever-present right here on this blog!)
I can't wait to read more. I took the book to read while waiting during my daughter's dance class this afternoon but this motormouth was yammering away next to me and completely wrecking my enjoyment of this funny frugal book (you have to know me to truly understand how serious this is to me) and since I'm a fast reader I wanted to savor every frugal nugget so I put it back in my bag!
Jeff Yeager says he sometimes Googles himself to see what people are saying about his crazy ideas. I hope he Googles this. I LOVE YOU JEFF YEAGER.
Of course I guess I could just go to his website and email him.
If you're nice to me I just may let you borrow this frugal guide to the good life.
