  • Simplify book. If you have a Kindle or e-reader, a good book is from our friend Joshua Becker. Charlie interviewed him last year when he came to speak at his church. He currently has an e-book up on Amazon about simplifying your life. It’s #1 in self-help books and pretty affordable at $2.99.
  • Handyman in Your Pocket book. The thrifty guy finds all sorts of ways to accomplish tasks that mere mortals could not. This mini-book will aid in that quest. $12.95 from Restoration Hardware.
  • Stanley 84-519K 12-in-1 Multi Tool. Every man needs a utility tool. Here’s a good one for about $14 at Amazon.
  • Coast 7050 Lantern 4C Emergency Area Light. Neat looking emergency LED light for those needed occasions. $16.80
  • Callet phone protector/wallet. Great for your iPhone or Blackberry, this has some pockets in back for your credit cards and other miscellaneous items. $19.95
  • The Doorganizer®. I think this product was invented with me in mind. Perfect for the thrifty guy who has a hard time remembering things. $11.99 at The Container Store.
  • LCD Under Cabinet Mount. Thought this was pretty nifty. Looks like its easy-to-install too. $19.95 at Amazon.
  • Metal Detector. This is for the thrifty, thrifty guy. Use it in the parks, in the aftermath of a fair or big event. $24 at Amazon.
  • Solar charger. Perfect for camping / outdoor adventures – will charge your phone via the sun! A little spendier at $50 from Samsonite.

  • Conserve Socket™. Save electricity by using this socket to shut-down your appliances after a given time interval. $9.99 at Belkin.
  • Kindle. This one is on my wish-list. Though a little spendy in price – you’ll probably make that up by the books being a little less expensive. $79 at Amazon.
  • Discount gift cards/codes. What’s not to like about the gift card? Easy to use and allows the gifted to get whatever their heart desires. With buying discounted gift cards – you’ll be able to get a gift card/code for less than original price. We recommend Gift Card Granny or Cardpool.
  • Lynda.com membership. I love this site. Very easy-to-use and has loads of helpful tips on software and other areas. $25 for monthly membership (other plans available).
  • Striped polo golf shirt. Get this Lynx golf shirt for $8 at Golfsmith. Was $40. Limited time only.
