money saving expert

Hello, I’m glad you’re here!

My name is Leah Ingram, a professional journalist by training and author of 15 books. Years ago, I became suddenly frugal. You may have read my blog or book of the same name.

These days I’m writing about products and services that provide the most value for your time and money — and mine.

I want you to be a smart shopper and a real sophisticated consumer. I feel confident that this blog can help you achieve that goal. If at any time you have questions, you can contact me.


How to Save on a Peloton Membership

  • See if your employer will reimburse you like they would other gym memberships.
  • Get a discount through your health insurance company.
  • Find out if you qualify for an industry discount: teachers, doctors and EMTs do.
  • Let Peloton know if you’re a member of the military. You get a discount.
  • Earn cash back on your membership from the credit card you use to pay for Peloton.

Free Thing to Do in NYC: Walking The High Line

New York City’s High Line is a public park built on an abandoned elevated railway line. It first opened in 2009.

Today, the High Line Park is one of New York City’s most popular tourist attractions. The park offers stunning views of Manhattan’s skyline, unique greenery amidst the city buildings, food vendors and various public art installations. Plus, it’s completely free.
