Frugality tips, even though it's hard to impress boomers with these

If you're a boomer, you have probably read scores of how-to-be-frugal guides, starting in your salad days (which is what we used to call being young and poor) and maybe this year, too. So, it's hard to tell a boomer a new trick.

All the same, I recommend the list of 30 frugality tips offered by Ramit Sethi a few months ago on his blog. Sethi set out to find meaningful and useful tips, calling the project the Save $1,000 in 30 Days Challenge. No, you don't have to sign up for the newsletter. And, no, you don't have to watch the video, although I enjoyed it. Just scroll down to the list of 30 hyperlinked tips and settle in for a short surf.

Tips in the first half of the list come from Sethi. Tips in the bottom half were submitted by readers (and edited by Sethi).
