OPINION: The search is on for our most frugal reader

ARE you a person with short arms and long pockets and do you always grab the cheapest spaghetti can on the shelf?

If you do you may well be Ipswich's biggest cheapskate.

Don't be shy - there's no shame in it.

The Queensland Times is launching a money-saving series soon, called Costbusters, and we want to hear from people who are experts at making their hard-earned cash go further.

If you're our biggest cheapskate, we want to celebrate you and your fantastic frugality - but be warned, we also want to share your secrets with our readers.

As cost-of-living pressures bite down on all of us, we want to help readers by giving them as much sensible, practical advice as possible.

If you'd like to share your story and tell us why you think you deserve this coveted title, email me peter.chapman@apn.com.au or give me a call on 3817 1737.

And don't forget to follow our Costbusters series, which launches on July 2 and will help you save on basic essentials including utility bills, food and groceries, car and fuel costs, and children's needs.

Plus, the series won't just contain advice - we are hoping to complement it by a series of great discounts and specials from local retailers.

Another great reason to buy your QT.
