An expression to describe someone who claims to be skint all the time to avoid spending cash when they are actually minted.
James: Do you think Jeremy will want to come to the cinema?
Jacob: Yeah he will but he'll pull the whole skintminted routine.
James: That's true, he'll want to wait for orange wednesdays.
Jeremy: Dude, I'm gonna have to ask for some diesel money, really struggling for cash at the minute.
Isaac: *cough* skintminted *cough*
Jeremy: What did you say?!
Isaac: Nothing just clearing my throat.
