Breaking Through with Georgiann - Interview with Ardy Skinner

Ardy Skinner knows, through personal experience, how to weather the economic storm and come out on top. She’s a Lavish Cheapskate, a new breed of cheapskate that has accomplished “lavish liberation” by using more ingenuity than money, more passion than experience, and more focused mindset than mainstream financial investing. And in her new book, The Lavish Cheapskate, Everyday Strategies to Free Up Money and Recession-Proof Your Life, Skinner helps people from all walks of life launch and build a recession-proof life which leads to liberation, one case-scenario comparison at a time (with hard numbers to show the outcome).

“A tough economy is a blessing for your personal financial mindset. Having a limited income forces you to become conscious of everyday spending and to become acutely aware of what money is for. That’s where the true meaning of money emerges; the perception that is the foundation to personal success in all areas of life.”

Skinner adds that in an uncertain economy, double-income families are at unusually high risk, because knowing their bare-minimum isn’t on their agenda. And when the economy turns around again, it is the Lavish Cheapskates that will become more successful by maintaining these daily principles.”

Packed with practical advice straight from the trenches, The Lavish Cheapskate is a do-it-now guide to recession proof your life, even if you’re at the threat of losing a job. In her book, Skinner defies conventional methods, citing that the “coupon-savings plan” in the grocery store is a “waste of time and money” and calls them “spending stimulation tickets.” She explains how any household can free up more money by abandoning them—and leveraging that money to recession-proof life.

Suddenly Frugal -how to live more on less

Suddenly Frugal -how to live more on less

Breaking Through with Georgiann - Interview with the Leah Ingram

Click the play button above to listen to the show!
Meet Leah Ingram, Bill Behre, and daughters Jane, 13, and Annie, 11. They walk most everywhere, they rarely eat out, they sometimes buy clothing at consignment shops, and they turn the lights off when they leave a room.

Theirs is no hard-luck-in-a-recession story. The Ingram-Behre family is solidly middle-class, fully employed, and not especially threatened by the conniptions gripping Wall Street. Behre, 43, is a dean at the College of New Jersey, while Ingram, 42, is a successful freelance writer and etiquette expert. They have no credit card debt.

That’s now. A little more than a year ago, the family was ensnared in America’s consume-at-all-costs culture. During the days of soaring home prices and easy credit, they took out a $101,000 home-equity loan on a previous house and spent lavishly on a lifestyle upgrade.

Listen to the show and learn how they became debt-free and what frugal living is like.
