Name: Kate Talbot

Where do you live?: Panhandle

Occupation: Marketing Consultant and Freelance Writer

What’s a project you’re working on?: Marketing and Community outreach for the Reimagine Festival. “The Outside Lands of Death” according to SF Gate

What is an accomplishment you’re really proud of?: Consulting and living on my own terms for the past three years while still being able to afford SF life!

Best money saving tip: Try to work for the places you spend the most money on. I do content for my Pilates studio and it helps keep my monthly expenses down.

What do you refuse to spend money on?: Wedding gifts! After engagement party, bridal shower, bachelorette party, I leave the gift registry to wealthy relatives.

Most expensive thing you’ve ever bought: Marc Jacobs bag circa 2007 after three months in my first job after college and before the economic collapse. It was happier times for prosperity.

How’d that feel?: Like the beginning of an amazing career was about to happen….definitely got laid off after Bear Stearns went under.

Favorite cheap eat: Dollar tacos at Teeth on Tuesdays!

Favorite dive bar: Noc Noc

Best deal you’ve ever gotten: Buddy passes! Working for an airline (I ran social at Virgin America) you can fly all around the world for free. Always stay friends with your co-workers, so you can then fly for $40 one way anywhere.

Favorite free thing to do: Walk throughout the city. Since I am freelance, I have time to get to places. I spend an hour each day walking from the Panhandle to the Mission jamming out to my music before I workout.

If you woke up a millionaire, what’s the first thing you’d buy?: Real estate! So in SF a one-bedroom apartment (though a million wouldn’t get me too much)

One album that everyone should listen to: Beyonce Lemonade. Women empowerment and it’s Beyonce…

Best hangover cure: Advil before bed and working out in the AM

Broke-Ass Stuart - Editor In Cheap

I've been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York, but to those familiar with my work, I'm just "that douchebag who writes books about cheap stuff and drinks a lot".
