Jeff Yeager has been described as America’s cheapest man and the Maestro of Misers. But he’s best known by the moniker bestowed on him by Today show host Matt Lauer — The Ultimate Cheapskate.
Speaking and writing books for more than a decade, Yeager stresses that it’s not about doing without, but rather about deciding what’s important in life and being happy. His firm belief: people would be much happier if they’d spend and consume less.
Yeager was in Edmonds on Sunday bringing his philosophy on frugal living to a group of more than 40 interested citizens who gathered to hear him at the Edmonds Library.
If you missed him, Yeager will speak again at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 7 at Lynnwood Library, 19200 44th Ave. W.
