Max Levitte

Max Levitte

Max always tries to buy gas in New Jersey because it's cheaper than in NYC. He shops for fruit and vegetables at Costco instead of the pricey supermarket. He registers domain names with GoDaddy because it costs 200% less than the competition. He gave up his land line and cable, and sometimes he buys secondhand items. Max has spent the last 24 years managing content, traffic, and monetization for internet companies and running large-scale consumer-focused websites. Prior to launching Cheapism.com, he served as the VP of marketing and monetization for Viewpoints Network and before that as general manager for ConsumerSearch.com, until it was acquired by The New York Times Co. Before his internet career, he worked as a journalist, which is why he loves content so much. Max holds an M.A. in Media Studies from The New School in New York City and a B.A. in World History from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He lives in New York City. You can reach him at max at cheapism.com.

Felix Sheng

Felix moved to Brooklyn where he could afford a larger, more light-filled apartment than any he might have found Manhattan. He tries to purchase everything on his credit cards, making sure to pay off the balance every month. The mileage he earns by charging all his purchases helps offset his travel expenses — and Felix travels a lot. Felix has worked in technology for the past 18 years, having cut his teeth at The New York Times Digital. He subsequently moved through several dot-coms into his own consulting practice. Felix has been developing custom website back ends for longer than he cares to remember. He has a degree in mathematics from the University of Chicago.

Kara Reinhardt

Kara takes worn-out heels to the shoe repair rather than buy new pairs. She moved her checking account to avoid ATM fees. While living in notoriously expensive New York City, she managed to save enough money to backpack around the world. Before joining Cheapism, Kara was a senior copy editor and web editor at Advertising Age. She also edited for ESPN The Magazine and New York magazine. She holds bachelor's and master's degrees from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

Danny Jensen

Danny Jensen

Danny is a Los Angeles-based editor and writer who covers food, travel, and more for Cheapism. He’s co-author of the guidebook, 100 Things to Do in Los Angeles Before You Die, 2nd edition (Reedy Press), and his work can also be found on Thrillist, Time Out, TravelZoo, KCET, and elsewhere. He grew up in Boston and received his B.A. in English from Vassar College. He’ll sing you an opera aria if you ask nicely. Danny has enjoyed DIY projects that save money since long before it was the cool thing to do. Whether he’s growing his own vegetables, pickling them or cooking elaborate dinners from scratch, he’s pretty convinced the food tastes better than spending a fortune on a night out. When he does go out, he has a knack for tracking down the best free events and concerts in town, along with finding delicious, cheap eats at holes-in-the-wall or food trucks. He’s also never met an impulse buy that he couldn’t pass up in favor of bargain hunting for a better deal.

Dan Roberts

Dan Roberts

Born with a wooden spoon in his mouth, Dan learned frugality by necessity and, to this day, prides himself on his ability to find the hidden treasures lurking somewhere on the dusty shelves of a local thrift store. Prior to joining Cheapism.com, Dan worked for over a decade in the publishing industry for iconic brands like TV Guide, Esquire, and Cosmopolitan before jumping headlong into the shark tank of digital commerce at sites like kgb.com and Offers.com. When he’s not plugged into Google Analytics or sifting through ten thousand rows of keyword research, Dan enjoys spending time with his family enjoying the scenic Hudson Highlands in upstate New York, and coaching recreational soccer teams.

Kris Scott

Kris Scott

Kris is a writer, editor, and sometimes graphic designer. She’s worked for the Rocky Mountain News and most recently as managing editor for Modern In Denver magazine. Her home is furnished almost entirely with curbside, Craigslist, and thrift store finds, and she enjoys the call of the bargain hunt. She will pay more, however, for a great cup of coffee and top-shelf brown liquor. Kris lives in Colorado with her husband, two sons, and two heeler mixes.

Pat Shrader

Pat Shrader

Pat Shrader has been in journalism since President Reagan was in office. He has worked as an editor, webmaster, copy editor, and reporter in Chicago, Indiana, and Texas. He lives in Chesterton, Indiana. Words he lives by: If a car can’t last 20 years, it’s not worth owning.

Marc Levy

Marc Levy

Marc Levy has been in journalism for more than two decades, mainly in New England, as a reporter, columnist, copy editor, and editor in newspapers and online-only sites. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Liane Starr

Liane shops consignment websites for bargains, re-heels her favorite old shoes, and collects coupon apps on her phone. Before joining Cheapism, Liane was the editor-in-chief of WSAToday, a business magazine for the footwear industry. She was also a senior editor at HitFix and a senior writer at EW.com.

Suzanne Schneider

Suzanne has held a variety of positions over the course of her wide-ranging career, from work in the documentary film industry to media consultant and market researcher to professor of English literature. Her job of raising two young children has taught her to see every cheap deal scored as a contribution by proxy to their future college tuitions.

Jennifer Magid

Jennifer Magid has worked as a writer and editor in publishing and marketing for almost two decades. She has written for outlets ranging from InStyle magazine to Psychology Today and for a number of grocery and personal care brands. Jenn is frugal by proxy: She is married to a certified cheapskate, which has been good for her wallet but bad for her shoe and handbag collections. These days, she never, ever buys her fashions full price. Jennifer holds a master’s in journalism from New York University. She lives in Connecticut with her family and an admittedly expensive-to-maintain standard poodle — the one anomaly in her cheap lifestyle.

Lacey Muszynski

Lacey Muszynski has three loves in life: Mexican food, bloody marys, and snarky writing. She's a writer and editor in Wisconsin, a very underrated state, especially if you ask a Wisconsinite. She's eaten a ton of burgers for Serious Eats, listicled for Thrillist, edited trade magazines, and written for many Milwaukee and Madison publications. At any given time, you're most likely to find her at the grocery store deciding what to do with that $1 discount bag of not-quite-moldy-yet lemons. (The answer is limoncello.)

Erin Kuschner

Erin Kuschner

Erin has spent the past decade as a writer and editor in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, and Boston, where she now resides. She loves visiting local thrift stores to add to her growing glassware collection and thinks hiking in the (free!) great outdoors trumps any gym membership. Prior to joining Cheapism, Erin was a reporter and editor at Boston.com, Time Out Austin, and Time Out Los Angeles, and has written for the Los Angeles Times, Eater Austin, The Local Palate, and other publications. She will never say no to tacos and a great gin cocktail.

Rachel Schneider

Rachel Schneider

Rachel is a Michigan-based writer who has dabbled in a variety of subject matter throughout her career. As a mom of multiple young children, she tries to maintain a sustainable lifestyle for her family. She grows vegetables in her garden, gets her meat in bulk from local farmers, and cans fruits and vegetables with friends. Her kids have plenty of hand-me-downs in their closets, but her husband jokes that before long, they might need to invest in a new driveway thanks to the frequent visits from delivery trucks dropping off online purchases (she can’t pass up a good deal, after all).

Maxwell Shukuya

Maxwell Shukuya

Maxwell is a California-based writer who got his start in print journalism, a career that satisfies his love of research. That penchant for learning also fuels his desire to be a discerning consumer — whether he’s looking for his next pair of headphones or rock-climbing shoes. When he’s not hunched over his laptop, you can find Maxwell sending routes at the crag, playing Magic: The Gathering, or hanging out with his buddies at the bar. As a UCSC alumnus, he’s also a proud banana slug.

Anna Christakos bio

Anna Christakos

Anna Christakos is a web producer and writer in Austin, Texas. Dubbed "The Frugaler" by her husband, Anna thrives on finding fun ways to save money. She's been baking her own bread since before it became cool (thanks, COVID) and also enjoys thrifting, selling old clothes, and exploring free activities in the city. Anna finds that cutting back on everyday expenses can be both frugal and rewarding.

Blakelee Bartik

Blakelee Bartik

Blakelee is what some might refer to as a modern-day nomad. She hops around the country (and often the globe) to experience what it’s like living in different places and cultures, always with her laptop in tow. Constantly in pursuit of a good travel deal, Blakelee will do just about anything to get one — even if that means waking up at 3 a.m. to catch a cheaper flight, sleeping on the floor of an overnight ferry to get around paying for a hotel room, or squishing 10 days’ worth of clothes into a backpack to avoid baggage fees. Before working in production and social media, Blakelee spent three years in Madrid, where she taught English and explored Europe in her spare time.
