The Ultimate Cheapskate Wants The Nobel Prize

ACCOKEEK, Md. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The ultimate cheapskate is penny-pinching his way to a Nobel Prize.

Jeff Yeager, author of The Ultimate Cheapskate’s Road Map to True Riches: A Practical (and Fun) Guide to Enjoying Life More By Spending Less (Broadway Books), sings the praises of a stingy lifestyle, and wants to win the Nobel Prize in cheapness.

He says, “If we reduced our dependence on money, people would see you don’t need to a lot of money to live. Now that Al Gore won the Nobel Prize, I think I’m next.”

And Yeager, who funnels cheap box wine into bottles and soft- boils his breakfast eggs in dirty dishwater, is taking his penny- pinching pointers on the road with a bicycle tour called “Tour de Cheapskate” starting this Wednesday (Jan. 16) in San Diego.

Yeager will bike hundreds of miles to promote his book, giving the money he would have spent on hotels and transportation to charity.

Yeager says, “I’m the ultimate cheapskate. I re-wrap my used Christmas wrapping paper and take it back to Wal-Mart, so of course I’m gonna go cheap on this trip.”
