Ly and laughing out loud” Carl Pope Executive Director Sierra Club“People today think frugality is no fun Jeff puts the lie to it I recognize in him my own delight at concocting high joy low cost solutions to life’s challenges Less doesn’t mean deprivation it means less stress commuting illness loneliness and the other ills of our ‘ is better’ and ‘it’s never enough’ culture Enjoy” Vicki Robin co author of Your Money or Your Life“Jeff Yeager’s Ultimate Cheapskate book will not only save you a bunch of money it’ll put a smile on your face while you’re doing it Finally there’s no need to be afraid to face your finances Jeff explains things in clear easy to understand language all the while showing you how to get the last laugh on your money” Gary Foreman Publisher The DollarStretcherco. Some of Jeff Yeager's methods might be too extreme for me but I admire his dogged thriftiness I found a lot of useful advice in The Ultimate Cheapskate's Road Map to True RichesMy favorite uote If money talks then it tells a lot of liesSome of his Golden Nuggets are unuestionably valuable My favorite is Pinch the dollars and the pennies will pinch themselves that includes an extended rant on personal finance writers who advise their readers to be mindful of the latte factor the small daily indulgences they genuinely enjoy Yeager recommends focusing instead on big budget items like housing food and transportation He thoroughly covers these and goes on to talk about advertising and marketing technologygadgets entertainment and even travel This probably is one of the few pre Great Recession personal finance books still worth reading Although the book pre dates the financial independence retire early FIRE movement; I'd consider it FIRE adjacent He's clearly an admirer of Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin's Your Money or Your Life The basic premise of Yeager's book is that the less money you spend the less time you need to spend earning itHe suggests establishing a waiting period on making purchases Never underestimate the power of not spending moneyI also like his idea of establishing a permanent standard of living to avoid lifestyle inflation His suggestion is Live below your means at 30 and stay there Oops better late than never I guessSome of Yeager's humor is crude and sexist which can be off putting If you can get past that it's a worthwhile read

I'm fine with the fact that most of this book was common sense That's the only kind of personal finance book I'm going to trust anyway The fact that everyone knows how they should spendsaveeatetc doesn't magically make it happen and regular reminders and reinforcements are very usefulWhat made the book almost unendurable for me but I did finish it was the cheesy sense of humor especially when it crossed over into repeated reuests for sexy photos from female readers and regular slams of Suze Orman Not even her advice just her appearance I've never watched her shows or whatever but that's just inappropriate on general principle Several principles really I also get plenty of Stan Lee's style from Stan Lee himself but that's just tiring not offensive Also charming Every chapter begins with a handful of 'clever' uotes and at least one in each batch is from the authorThere were some valid points mixed into all that Thinking in terms of choices rather than sacrifices Settling for less beats being unsettled Fiscal fasting and 'What was I thinking' audits References to Dominguez and Robin And a really tasty sounding pasta and sausage dishI disagree that small savings like the popular Starbucks ban are useless It all depends on what you do with the funds instead and some people really can accumulate them for a useful purpose Staying in the first house that you buy makes all kinds of fiscal and psychological sense if you can do it I particularly liked the part about being able to decorate for yourself rather than for the market but many of us have careers that reuire regular relocation Not to mention aging parents etc I do agree that giving up a car is easier than people realize because I don't have one myself; and that's in an area with no public transportation Asking to telecommute in lieu of a raise however is very creative thinking but unlikely to work out for most readersUnavoidable with his nonprofit background but the advice to regularly read books about people who are truly suffering to help keep perspective isn't going to be attempted by many readers It's not even particularly relevant He's also a terrible travel snob
