Week in Review: Time Change Edition

by Kay Lynn

Hopefully you remembered to turn back your clocks before heading out this morning.  When I was a teenager  it seemed I was invariably scheduled to work time change Sunday.  In the Fall, I’d arrive an hour early and in the Spring an hour late!

This week I shared my mom’s delicious (and easy) chili recipe over at Couple Money. If you try it, let me know what you think.

Editor’s Picks

These are some of my favorite articles in the blogosphere this past week. Enjoy!

Always Keep $100 in Your Checking Account. This is great advice and something I started once my budgeting became more precise. (Budgets Are Sexy).

Wisdom of a 10 year Old. A youngster with a can recycling business demonstrates the power of early financial education. (Bruce Bucks)

Pros and Cons of Blogging. This is a realistic look at the business of running a blog. I agree that the positive outweighs the negative. (Money Reasons)

Does my Vote Matter? Before Tuesday’s election this post questions the reason for low turnout as well as interesting ideas for changing it. (Financial Samurai)

Should the Poor Tithe? I would reword to the question from “tithe” to “give” and it’s a clearer answer. (Money Help for Christians)

Closet Cull 2010. Red has inspired me with post to take a hard look at my closet in the near future. Well, this and the fact that I’m running out of room. (Girl with the Red Balloon)

Our Wisest Money Decision. If everyone had made the same decision, the housing crisis would never had happened! (Family Balance Sheet)

Do You Save Instead of Paying Debt? I used to do this but changed tacks in 2009. What do you think? (Watson Inc.)

Canned vs. Dried Beans: Which Are Cheaper? I use lots of canned beans so this discussion was interesting although I think the non-monetary cost of dried beans is overlooked. (Wise Bread)

Thanks for including my post.

I certainly enjoyed my extra hour of sleep this morning.

Kristia, I got an extra hour of errands before flying out instead of sleep; but an hour is an hour!
