As much as I dislike TV, I love this advice:
Dec. 26th is “Free TV Day!” That is the day everybody puts their working tv in the Free section of Craigslist. Anybody who gets a new flatscreen for Xmas invariably hooks it up right away and wants to get rid of the old one ASAP. Start scanning the ads the night before and be ready to pick it up quick!
Frugality is a mindset. Buy low, sell high. Be greedy when others are fearful, be fearful when others are greedy.
