The bargain lover's bible
Who says life in an economic downturn can’t be good? Not Annie Korzen, author of Bargain Junkie: Living the Good Life on the Cheap.” The stand-up comedian’s hilarious new release offers serious advice on how to dress well for dimes on the dollar, how to eat yourself sick on free room service food and entertain in style like a true “economista.”
My favorite chapter is the one in which she reveals the best Web sites for procuring freebies and discounts, especially www.restaurant.com which allows you to buy $25 gift certificates to your favorite restaurants for only $10. That alone justifies the price of the book.
