Greetings, Cheapskate readers! I’m overjoyed to have partnered with Daily Steals and nearly a dozen other vendors for this, the first-ever Cheapskate Mystery Box. For just $59.99*, you’ll get a box packed with some seriously awesome stuff, all of it hand-picked by yours truly. $50 of the sale of each box to go to The Hunger Project! We have only 250 of these available, and when they’re gone, they’re gone – but rest assured we’ll do another one.

Thanks for supporting me, all the participating companies and this very worthy cause!
