About the Partners:
Shoestring Magazine is a national lifestyle magazine for twenty- and thirty-something men and women interested in getting the most bang for each buck. Shoestring is currently published online as a free, monthly issue broken into weekly editions distributed as a newsletter each Wednesday.
Shoestring readers live in the hippest metropolitan areas and rural enclaves, where the high cost of living and median income rarely match up. They're challenged on a daily basis to be cleverly resourceful—to stretch each and every dollar—and Shoestring offers advice and resources with their milestones in mind: looking the part; finding the perfect job; buying a home; and planning for a wedding or kids. Shoestring readers want it all: to live the dream on a dime, all with style, substance, and a serious sense of humor—to enjoy the Champagne life on a beer budget. We call that getting The Good Life for Less.
