Best of the Cheapskate Monthly

Simple Tips For Living Lean In The Nineties

Mary Hunt, Editor

St. Martin's Paperbacks




Mary Hunt is a self-avowed reformed spendthrift and credit-card junkie. When she and her family of four found themselves $100,000 in debt and her husband suddenly lost his job, it was time to tighten the belt.

Refusing to sacrifice her quality of life, Ms. Hunt systematically put to work every tip, trick and technique to turn her financial disaster around.

Translating that experience into her immensely popular newsletter, The Cheapskate Monthly, Ms. Hunt now tells you all you need to know to turn your own finances around for good.

Filled with first-person accounts, recipes, formulas, budgeting and recylcing tips, reader response and encouragement, The Best of the Cheapskate Monthly is a necessity for the '90s.
