Worth reading now

I've been seeing the tacky Obama commemorative tchotckes in the Sunday coupon inserts for some time, but I'd missed the "Party like a Barack star" thong. See all the hideous merch in this

With overstuffed racks and the smell of mildewy books, thrift store shopping can be a little overwhelming. I like Simple Mom's tips for thrifting successfully.

Hungry for more smart shopping tips? Fellow Oak Parker Carrie from Shoplifting with Permission puts all of her frugal shopping know-how in one bookmark-worthy post.

Now, I'm off to read Rob Walker's new book, Buying In.
