The Cheapskate Next Door - book review

November 21st, 2010 at 10:57 pm

I really liked this book. I got it from the library. It didn't have any new earthshaking savings tips, but had a lot of funny stories about people who are cheapskates and how they live. It's written by Jeff Yeager who wrote The Ultimate Cheapskate's Road Map to True Riches. It deals with people he met while traveling the country touring for his first book. Lot's of good quotes and lots of good stories.

Walgreen's had canned mushrooms on sale this morning for .39/can. That's a very good price. I'm completely out so I got 3 cans. I paid using a gift card that I bought with RR - so no cost to me.

I went to Walmart and got several items for the food pantry. Safeway has a Thanksgiving coupon book out right now and all the coupons came from it.

6.00 - 6 Sierra Mist Cranberry splash
-6.00 - 6 $1 q's

6.00 - 6 Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate
-6.00 - 6 $1 q's

4.80 - 8 cans Green Giant green beans
-2.00 - 2 $1/4 q's
2.80 - .35/each

4.80 - 8 cans Green Giant corn
-2.00 - 2 $1/4 q's
2.80 - .35/each

I spent $5.60 for all of it and my dad is delivering it tomorrow since I can't lift a lot yet.

I got several free things this week

Sample Tide detergent
Sample Gain trash bag
Sample Wisk detergent
Trial Size Dove deodorant
Sample 5 Mega Red pills
3 Suave deodorants
2 Mars Simply Caramel candy bars
6 2 liter bottles Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash
6 boxes Swiss Miss hot chocolate
$5 Walmart gift card from the Monopoly game came in the mail.

    That is a good price on mushrooms! Too bad I stocked up on them several weeks ago.

    That is a really great idea! Spening your RR on a gift card. That way, they don't expire. I hate finding one of those RR in my purse that is expired! Shoot!

    Good job on all your freebies too!
