Clark Howard

It’s time for another Link-O-Rama Mama, where I lazily link to other people’s well written and thoroughly researched articles.

What if You Didn’t Buy New Things?

I recently gave a talk about non-consumerism to a local minimalism group, and although it was well attended, it was only an option for those annoyingly hipster enough lucky enough to live in Portland, Oregon. Luckily, the group organizer blogs under the name My Best Year and wrote up a synopsis of my speech.

No Spend Summer

If you’re looking for ideas and inspiration about living a frugal life, you might want to check out Carrie Willard’s blog post about how she’s planning a “no spend summer” with her family. You can even read a blog post about what she’s done to far to ready for her  goal.

More Clark Howard Articles

I’ve been continuing to write short articles for the website, with a personal goal of two per week. However, they tend to publish in clumps, with three popping up just the other day.

How to optimize tax deductions when you donate stuff

How to squeeze every single last drop from household products

Just say “no” to these 5 kitchen unitaskers

I may not be lucky enough to LIVE in Portland, but I do get to come for my first visit – tomorrow! Oooo, look, that little Powell’s ad over there is looking right at me. 😉

OOh those articles on Clark Howard were great. He’s a local celebrity here in Atlanta.

Thank you for sharing these! I’m always looking for more frugal bloggers who focus on nonconsumerism over “coupons coupons coupons” or “cheating the system” to buy a bunch of crap for free.

I enjoyed reading these. And that banana slicer always makes me laugh. It always will.
Thanks for the links! They help me get my “fix” of frugality, so I can stick to my own goals.
