10 Cheapskate Rules From America’s “Cheapest” Man

He’s known as the ultimate cheapskate.. America’s Cheapest Man.

Jeff Yeager lives by 10 RULES, starting with only paying under $2 per kilogram of food.

This isn’t just a once off, weekly, or monthly goal on Jeff’s calendar…it’s a way of life. Despite being a proud, self proclaimed “cheapskate”, he’s still able to maintain healthy eating habits and doesn’t skimp on delicious taste (plus a cask of wine or two).

He also remains defiantly environmentally conscious (Jeff doesn’t waste anything; not even the wine cask!)

Dinner for 80c a serving? Electricity costing 20c per meal? Using your old wine cask as a pillow? How does he do it?
