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 30 and stay there. The Ultimate Cheapskate was living well on what he earned at 30, 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 P. | 2/17/2014

    " This is a cutsey book about Jeff Yeager's lifestyle. It ranges far and wide, beyond mere cheapskatehood (?) into philosophy, politics, life and its meaning. A lot of his advice is right on point and he phrases it very well. DO NOT BUY this book! Check it out from the library, put it in your backpack and pedal it home. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 2/11/2014

    " So, the author is a pervert & I think he thinks he's funnier than he actually is. However, there were some enjoyable stories & some good ideas. I was hoping for more ideas, but the overall point is a good one. You can live with less & still be happy - how true, how true. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MaryAnn | 2/9/2014

    " The first of Jeff Yeager's cheapskate series, this is NOT the same book as The Cheapskate Next Door, although it does have an identical theme. Lots of good, fun, practical advice in Yeager's very readable style. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristie Helms | 2/7/2014

    " This might have been really great if I apparently weren't already so good at being cheap. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 2/7/2014

    " A light-hearted take on some serious financial and lifestyle decisions. Yeagar makes the case that living a frugal lifestyle allows for more time to devout to what actually makes you happy. I expected a book full of tips to save money, but was met with more of a life philosophy. It's a quick, funny read and worth checking out. I want to try his idea of fiscal fasting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 2/6/2014

    " A fun read. Many of the ideas are a bit extreme for most of us, but there are some good ideas for everyone. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly | 2/6/2014

    " Mr. Yeager's book makes you think about your financial situation but it's mainly common sense. That being said, the book inspires you to make better choices and to truly consider the decisions you make on a daily basis. His style is juvenile and often annoying. I was put off by it but I guess the flip side is the message that you don't have to be stodgy and professional to be smart about money. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 1/25/2014

    " Great and simple philosophy about how to hold on to your money. Definitely made me rethink my spending habits and actually change them. Would have given it 5 stars, but the author has a fairly dirty mind and it came through a bit too much. Nothing too bad - it just got old after a while. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kendall | 1/24/2014

    " Really makes you think about your time vs money. There are some realy good points think about, but the humor is very dry and kind of preachy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary Ann | 1/17/2014

    " There were some good facts and thoughts to ponder, but there was nothing life-changing in this book. His sense of humor was too perverse for me at times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ledezma | 12/24/2013

    " This has been the funniest finance book I have ever read! It gives great advice and information on money/finances while delivering plenty of laugh out loud moments! Yes, some of the advice is a little over the top but for the most part its good & practical! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeffrey Schoenberger | 12/17/2013

    " Overall, kind-of funny, mildly interesting and a bit juvenile in the writing. Some of his ideas, like yearly spending audits to learn where you wasted money the previous year were unusual. Otherwise, just common sense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 12/14/2013

    " This author is hilarious! He had a lot of great advice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jiayin | 6/23/2013

    " The writing is humorous. I do agree with many things he said in the book and I applaud his way of living a happier life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miquixote | 6/15/2013

    " In the end it isn't much fun...but it may be necessary "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric Bell | 10/2/2012

    " Good book with some helpful advice, but kind of goes off the deep end in a few places. Overall, fairly practical. Presents the thought that sometimes the way to riches involves working and earning less and enjoying life more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 4/5/2012

    " Spend less, have more... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 2/13/2012

    " He has a bit of a vulgar way of describing things, but in spite of that, this was a very informative look at how we spend, and how we need to spend. I recommend it to anyone who is concerned about money. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/2/2012

    " I love getting in touch with my inner miser. This book was a nice reminder that I don't need everything I think I do. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amber | 11/13/2011

    " His philosophy of spending and deciding to live on less as a lifestyle choice. Two stars because most of his ideas were pretty obvious (i.e. buying a house instead of a mansion)and his humor wore on me a bit. And some of his ideas are too cheap even for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zach Weik | 9/2/2011

    " Not nearly as practical, fun, or inspiring as Total Money Makeover, but a few good ideas and a quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Owen | 8/21/2011

    " This book was good, but I preferred his second book The Cheapskate Next Door. Still a worthwhile read if you are looking for financial inspiration. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmen | 5/11/2011

    " This is a great read, especially if you have a frugal bit to you. Jeff is so extreme but he has solid ideas and great philosophy's about what really brings joy in life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 3/21/2011

    " Another outstanding book for helping in our questionable economy! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kendall | 3/5/2011

    " Really makes you think about your time vs money. There are some realy good points think about, but the humor is very dry and kind of preachy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony | 1/25/2011

    " This was a great read. It had a very nice mixture of frugality and comedy. At times I was laughing out loud while reading this book. After reading, you would want to hang out with the guy, but with the knowledge that he might have a BOGOF (Buy one get one free) coupon for the meal. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Miquixote | 12/16/2010

    " In the end it isn't much fun...although I do have to admit I think about some of its advice in certain moments when I am not being thrifty... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 9/24/2010

    " This author is hilarious! He had a lot of great advice. "

    " Another outstanding book for helping in our questionable economy! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Susanne | 7/26/2010

    " Didn't like it at all...WAY too much back language and crass humor and really NO tips. It was like the most general stuff you would see on TV. Dave Ramsey is WAY better. I was going to get his other book but he has completely turned me off! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diana | 7/9/2010

    " This is a good book for the novice "cheapskate" but aside from a brief section on how to negotiate and a list of sites covering various relatively free hobbies, I didn't find anything really new. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ledezma | 7/9/2010

    " This has been the funniest finance book I have ever read! It gives great advice and information on money/finances while delivering plenty of laugh out loud moments! Yes, some of the advice is a little over the top but for the most part its good & practical! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 7/2/2010

    " Surprisingly funny, this book is packed with practical advice for living on less. It's also a fun read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deidra | 5/5/2010

    " The financial advice was along the same lines that we follow and prescribe to. The book was full of perverted little quips, which bothered me and made it nearly impossible that I would recommend it to anyone to read. "
