Don’t hit the unsubscribe button! I have a very busy week, so posts will largely be sending you off to resources and stuff I find interesting. In today’s post, I’m providing a link to a great free e-book on personal finances – basically, ideas for living frugally.
And I have a confession to make. Over the weekend, I actually went into Vinnie’s (St Vincent de Paul). Here in Australia, they have second-hand clothing shops. I saw a crowd rushing into a Vinnie’s shop in Sydney and, intrigued, I decided to follow them. Now, don’t send me emails saying I’m a snob or something but it had never occurred to me to drop into Vinnie’s to shop and as a way of avoiding The Brands. So in I went, expecting to be hit with the overpowering smell of mothballs. But as I glanced around, I started to see some interesting stuff and a whole lot of people up the back of the shop at a No Tag sale (didn’t find out what that was).
Well, I bought a shirt for $9.00 – a Von Troska – so it’s a brand but it’s a recycled brand, so I don’t feel too bad. And in the process, have discovered an underworld of people who shop smartly at Vinnie’s. There’s some good quality stuff there if you look and are willing to fight it out with well-dressed ladies on the hunt for a bargain.
Anyway, I found this free e-book that has some very simple and effective ideas for saving money and living frugally. It’s called “Everything You Ever Really Needed to Know About Personal Finance on the Back of Five Business Cards“.
