  • In the nomination, please tell us in under 250 words why this guy is the guy. You can nominate yourself, but it means a lot coming from someone else.
  • Please include your name, the thrifty guys name and your email.

Please let us know if you have any questions in the comment section. Otherwise, nominate your thrifty guy today!

Congratulations to 2016 Thrifty Guy of the Year: David J.! His wife nominated him and mentioned these fine qualities: avid thrifter & Craigslist guru, uses duct tape, paid off college debt by 25 and has given his time and money to things that matter.

Also, a shout out to this years runner-up, Seth R., who was also nominated by his wife and shared that he is clever with finding the best deals / bargains and on one of their first dates together, he left his wallet in the car so when the bill came for dinner, she had to pay up! (Seth, around here, we call that cheap!

Thanks to all who participated in our inaugural contest! And, a shout-out to Ooma, who provided a Telo for our winner.
