    I'd replace "miser" with "miserly" or "mean" and make two sentences from the three.

    Re: let alone lunch

    "Miser" is a noun so it can't be preceded by "very". You need to add "a" and remove "very" or replace "miser" with an adjective.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
