    The Ultimate Cheapskate's Road Map to True Riches
    A Practical (and Fun) Guide to Enjoying Life...
    It used to be that “stuff” made you cool. That is so twentieth century. Jeff Yeager, the man dubbed The Ultimate Cheapskate by Matt Lauer on Today, offers a completely fresh take on personal finance, teaching us how to enjoy life more by spending less. He will show you how to buy less stuff, retire young, and live financially free, while you make a positive difference in people’s lives and save the planet along the way. The Ultimate Cheapskate’s Road Map to True Riches lays out the practices and principles that have made cheap the new cool. Live within your means at thirty and stay there. The Ultimate Cheapskate was living well on what he earned at thirty, so when he made more money, he saved every penny. Now he is “selfishly” employed, doing work he loves and helping others. Do for yourself what you could have others do for you. Cheapskates are die-hard do-it-yourselfers. It’s all about having the right tools, and The Ultimate Cheapskate will get you started. Pinch the dollars and the pennies will pinch themselves. It’s not the $3 cup of coffee; it’s the big-ticket decisions that determine whether you’ll be financially free. So buy a house, not a castle. The Ultimate Cheapskate’s Road Map to True Riches promises a quality of life you cannot buy, a sense of satisfaction you cannot fake, and an appreciation for others and for the planet that gives life value. Open your road map and prepare to discover the true joys of financial freedom.

    Don't Throw That Away!

    Don't Throw That Away!
    1,001 Ways to Reuse Your Stuff So You . . .
    “I call it creative repurposing: Finding an alternative use—or ten—for items we all throw away every day. Of course, I come from a long line of creative repurposers. My grandmother used to make Christmas decorations out of the specimen cups from my grandfather’s visits to the urologist. And you wonder why I have issues?”  —Jeff Yeager, the Ultimate Cheapskate   Prompted by the recession, the growing interest in frugality, and his passion for environmental conservation, Jeff Yeager presents Don’t Throw That Away!, a practical and entertaining guide devoted entirely to the second element of the old environmentalist’s mantra: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.    With the humor and zaniness that readers have come to love from America’s beloved Ultimate Cheapskate, Don’t Throw That Away!, Jeff’s first eBook original (talk about saving money on paper!), offers a slew of creative ways to repurpose all sorts of items that will have you saving money and the earth’s resources: · Make a “cheapskate soap-on-a-rope” using a pair of worn out pantyhose and those little slivers of soap you normally discard. · Craft the perfect inflatable travel pillow using the plastic bladder from inside an empty container of “box wine” (bonus: making one will help you fall asleep). · Boil citrus rinds in water for 1 minute on the stove or in the microwave for a natural kitchen air freshener. From bottle caps to dryer lint, latex condoms to sour milk, Yeager proves that there’s a way to repurpose it. Seasoned with thought-provoking facts about our disposable society and with short profiles of some true geniuses of creative repurposing (like the guy who covered his house with crushed beer cans to save money on aluminum siding), this eBook original will have you thinking twice before you reach for the garbage can and saying, “Whatever you do, Don’t Throw That Away!”
