Man has no time for cheapskate (5)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'cheapskate' is the definition.
(cheapskate can mean a miserly person)

'man has no time' is the wordplay.
'man' becomes 'r' (abbreviation for rook, a chess piece or 'man').
'has' says to put letters next to each other.
'no time' becomes 'mise' (I can't justify this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'r' put after 'mise' is 'MISER'.

'for' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for miser that I've seen before include "Person who hoards money" , "Mean-minded type" , "One such as Scrooge" , "One hoarding money" , "Hoarder of money and possessions" .)
