A hard-up student who hunts in skips for clothes and makes her own homemade toothpaste and soap, was awarded $10,000 in pennies for being the ‘Ultimate Cheapskate’.
Jennifer Hillam, 21, from the University of Utah, won first place in Zions Bank’s online reality show Cheapster, which trialled 12 college students on their money-saving skills.
A forklift was hired to drop Miss Hillam’s glittering 3.5ton prize fund at The Gateway mall in Salt Lake City, where she told KSL.com: ‘I didn’t think that I was the cheapest, but I’m pretty bad and it’s paid off.’
Well done Jennifer! Carry on being tight and diving through those skips!
