“Steph, thank you for showing us how it truly is possible to eat REAL food, on a REAL budget.  But, mostly thank you for BEING REAL!  Your honesty, sincerity, and genuine desire to help others by sharing your experiences and expertise shine through. Your Cheapskate Cook Mentorship Program provided the strategy, recipes, motivation, and confidence for me to create a very workable plan for cutting our food spending to fit our new retirement budget.  I am so grateful!  Oh, and your recipes are delicious (my hubby thanks you too).  I’m a forever fan!”

“I had such a great and easy time participating in this mentorship program. I was in search for some real life applicable tips and tricks to saving money and I found that here! I’ve been in other groups or programs that I felt wasn’t really fitting being that their target audience were in a higher “budget” category than I and it was hard applying the “tips” to my specific income. I found this program so encouraging. I found the advice, tips and words of encouragement so uplifting it made me feel more hopeful about the possibility of saving more money and shopping wiser….Thank you Steph for sharing your real life experiences with us and making us feel we are not alone. I had fun!”
