We're back! Welcome to season two of The Cheapskate Show, the podcast that's all about saving you money. This week, we've got three great topics:

  • Got old hardware sitting around? You might be surprised what you can do with a seemingly outdated phone, laptop or tablet. 
  • Wyze just dropped its $50 over-the-ear headphones, which include active noise-canceling. Can they possibly rival similar products from the likes of Apple, Bose and Sony? We've got the scoop.
  • Whether you ship a lot of packages or just a few here and there, allow us to introduce you to PirateShip. It's incredibly easy to use and can save you some cash.

You can listen to the new episode (and past ones) right here:
