Have you ever wondered why "cheap" isn’t on the Welcome to Winnipeg sign? It should be.

It's what we're known for. 

As Winnipeg’s self-proclaimed biggest cheapskate, Jeremy Bradley has been cutting costs and looking for creative ways to save money.

And maybe some of his methods are a little sneaky, too. Whatever saves him money, he says.

Bradley, a syndicated radio host and entertainment reporter, is author of The Official Guide to Being a Winnipeg Cheapskate. He joins the Free Press Business section today as a video columnist appearing every two weeks.

HERE’S HIS FIRST TIP:

When it comes to online shopping, I always thought a promo code was something exclusive and that I needed to be in the know. Not so. Online retailers want you to save... you just need to know how to find the deals. Google is your friend.
