Chun Ji-woong (Song Junggi) is a young man who always fails the company entrance exams. His mother has stopped giving him an allowance and he doesn' t have a single penny left in his pocket so romance is not an option for him. Now, he' s about to be kicked out from where he lives because he could not pay the monthly rent. Miraculously, he gets to meet Ku Hong-sil (Han Ye-seul), a bottle-collecting savior, just in time. Hong-sil is a penny pincher who would not accept love, religion, and illness in her life because it' s a waste of money. She makes an attractive proposal to Ji-woong, saying that she will teach him ways to earn money. However, nothing is for free in this world. Hong-sil has one condition: he must do whatever she tells him to do for the next two months. Ji-woong joins her and begins serving her as a servant. While he begins to make money, they have disputes about everything they do. But their co-worker helps him save more and more money. They have begun working together with different purposes. Will they be successful?
