Launched in May 2019 by journalist Kate Samuelson and graphic designer Georgia Weisz, Cheapskate now reaches thousands of weekly readers.
When the newsletter arrives in subscribers’ inboxes every Monday morning, each handpicked event is still available to attend – allowing readers to be spontaneous (something which can be hard in London!).
Scarlett Ferro is a 23-year-old primary school teacher based in Streatham, south London. In her spare time, she reviews London restaurants, bars and other experiences on her popular Instagram account, London in Pairs. Here, Scarlett discusses cheap eats, dreamy dates and Alice in Wonderlands bars.
Courtney Bembridge is a TV journalist covering world news for the BBC. She hails from the sun-baked state of Western Australia – and moved to London in 2017. De Beauvoir-based Courtney has spent the pandemic rediscovering the things she loves about her adopted city, from lidos to markets.
Balham-based Katie Strick is a feature writer and commissioning editor at the Evening Standard newspaper. Here, she shares her go-to places for cheap food in London, her most memorable journalistic assignments and her biggest misconception about living in the city.
