The Cheapskate's Handbook

Musician and writer Mifflin Lowe's guide is full of shortcuts to saving.

Mifflin Lowe

Packed with hilarious observations, unusual tips and the stingiest advice money couldn't buy, The Cheapskate's Handbook is the perfect gag gift for your favourite miser — who might just be you. Skinflint Mifflin Lowe invites fellow cheapskates to come out of the closet in a celebration of all things free, complimentary, pro bono and, if need be, cheap. With advice on everything from avoiding generous impulses to creatively bumming off your neighbours, plus delightful watercolour illustrations, hilarious photographs and Mifflin's own "Miser's Aptitude Test," The Cheapskate's Handbook will have you laughing and saving money at the same time. What a deal! (From Familius)
