Hi Ronnie. How you doing?
I´m from Brazil and the expression is “mão de vaca”! Literally it’s “cow’s HAND” :)
Thanks for the class!
Let’s save money!!

Really I am so grateful for your great lesson. It is amazing advice to save money I think that penny-pinching is a keen way to cover our needs and to make our ends meet thank you Ronnie.

Hi Ronnie,

there is a good adjective that means the same as stingy, tight, close-fisted and cheap : MEAN.

Profile photo of adrijana adrijana

    Hello Adrijana,
    That’s correct, but only used in British English in the sense of “cheap” (person).

    Profile photo of David David

      Hi David,

      I don´t know, but I looked up the word “stingy” in Macmillian Dictionary (American) and there are synonyms and related Words : frugal, open (= cca open-fited), mean, tight, …

      Profile photo of adrijana adrijana

        Check “mean” as an entry (adjective). I’m pretty sure that the dictionary will mention that it’s a British term.

        Profile photo of David David

        Hi Adrijana

        ITS British word and it is mean penny pincher

Great lesson, but I think you can save more money if you walk instead of take a bike or public transportation jajaja.
By the way , if you come some day on vacation to the north of Spain you can save money calling me.
It would a pleasure for me to carry on in my taxi for free.
You will welcome , Ronnie .

KKK… Here (Brazil), we normally use mão de vaca to someone that is a penny pinch or frugal… thank you Ronnie…

Hello everybody. Another expression of people who do not like spending money in Brazil is “Pão Duro”, like “hard Bread” kkkkkkkk

Profile photo of jpacamargos jpacamargos

There is another usual expredsson here in Brazil meaning the same thing: “pão-duro”, literally: “hard-bread”.

A really way to save money is to pay with any debet card that has an option “cash back” and the card must be served by your employer. I have that and every month get some money back. Even whether it is 5 rubles. :)

Hello, Ronnie!

I’m a little bit confused about “mean” Ex. he is too mean. Is it the same meaning as he is so cheap??
I’m a penny pincher as well :-)

Hello everyone,
I brown bag it each day that’s why I’m in tip-top shape. I feel healthy. I never go out for breakfast or dinner. I always make food at home.

But I’m not penny pincher. I always buy new stuff from shops. I never wait for sales or dicounts.
I can say. It’s something like a my bad habbit. I guess. But I don’t care.:)

Thanks Ronnie for the next great lesson.
Till then. ;)

Second, list the things you have waste.

Three, cook yourself.
