The Ultimate Cheapskate

Posted Friday, May 9, 2008

The Ultimate Cheapskate Jeff Yeager is the author of The Ultimate Cheapskate's Road Map to True Riches: A Practical (and Fun) Guide to Enjoying Life More by Spending Less. Yeager is from rural Ohio and has had a long career in the non-profit world. He has always been frugal with money -- so much so that he found he could retire at 46 -- or as he calls it, become "selfishly employed." He is now bicycling around the country, staying with friends and volunteering. Friday morning at 9, Regina Brett interviews the self-styled Titan of Tightwads about his life and his guiding philosophy: whatever it is, it can always be cheaper.
