Cash-strapped Europe is in the grip of a bargain-hunting boom. Every week a staggering 40 million people in the UK use money-off deals and voucher sites to buy everything from holidays to clothes, car insurance and even dental care. Cutting Edge takes an entertaining and revealing look at the lives of some thrifty people, from frugal families obsessed by discount vouchers and competitions to a penny-pinching bride who's determined that her wedding day will cost less than the price of the average wedding dress. Then there's John, who claims he saves £1,500 a year by replacing meat from the butcher with road-kill when friends come to dinner.
