Want Not loves WLS-TV ABC Chicago!

Whoops, so sorry I got it wrong, earlier—you have to understand that I usually spend the bulk of my days chatting with only my dog, and the flurry of people and events here in Chicago has fried my brain, a little. It was the lovely Leah Hope from WLS-TV with whom I chatted earlier today, and so if you’re not a Chicago native (or you missed it), here’s some of that good deal-lovin’ in action:



(You can also read the associated online piece here.)

As always, it’s a blast to get to talk about having more with less with anyone who will listen, and—also as always—I’m pleased that when I’m asked to do it in front of a camera, I don’t do anything too embarrassing or have something stuck in my teeth.

Thanks, WLS!

    “This video is no longer available.” However, WLS’s website has it here:

    You have to sit through a commercial first, but Mir has about 30 seconds beginning at the 2:04 mark.

    Okay, this is interesting to me. The original video (for the early news?) was completely different—my sound bite was that bit about using social media for discounts, which in the current video is something Leah mentions at the end. Heh.
