Money in a Coin Purse


Jake LaTurner's Guide for Penny Pinchers


I am dedicated to providing a diverse Penny Pincher’s website that addresses many aspects of everyday Kansans lives. Saving a little money here and a little there can make a real difference when trying to make ends meet.

As a small business owner who has had to meet payroll and survive some pretty tough economic times I know the value of making every penny count. Consumers can find valuable information they need to help save money on groceries, gas and traveling, home energy, health care, college tuition, back-to-school savings and more. We are open to adding additional links for savings Kansans may wish to share with our office. Please e-mail me the links at Jake@treasurer.ks.gov.
