Jacksonville on the Cheap is published by Teresa Mears, a Florida publisher, writer and editor who was raised to be frugal. She was downsized three years ago after nearly 30 years as an editor at newspapers ranging in size from the Portland (Tenn.) Leader to The Los Angeles Times and The Miami Herald, where she worked most recently.
She moved to Florida in 1980 because it was the only place she could get a job during that recession and has lived in South Florida since 1985, in Miami, Hollywood and Fort Pierce. She also has lived on Florida’s Gulf Coast, in St. Petersburg and Inverness. Jacksonville Beach is where she saw the ocean for the first time, while visiting relatives.
