Should You Spend Your Money or Your Time?

Written by Suba Iyer - Leave a Comment

We’ve all heard that time is money. It can mean various things to various people. Over time, if you save and invest, you will have more money. If you waste time, the money you earn will be less.

Written by Richard Barrington - One Comment

I’m a financial analyst, not a philosopher, and yet in my writings about money I often touch on the subject of time. Generally, this is because the two are somewhat interchangeable with one another — some people sacrifice their free time to plunge headlong into their careers, while others sacrifice income to have more leisure time.

So then the challenge becomes one of analyzing why people don’t apply common sense to their finances more often. Temptation is a big reason, of course. One person goes over […]

Overwhelmed at Work and Home? You May Be Living on ‘Contaminated Time’

Written by FCN Staff - One Comment

This post comes from Colleen Oakley at our partner site LearnVest. “There just aren’t enough hours in the day.” “I’m crazy busy.” “My to-do list is a mile long.” If you’re like most Americans, you likely say one (or all) of the above statements on a regular basis.

Lack of sleep costing you a fortune?

Written by Suba Iyer - 6 Comments

A sleep-deprived, bleary-eyed look is practically a rite of passage for most new parents. I knew I wouldn’t get much sleep for the first few months, so I planned for it. I finished all my assignments ahead of schedule, and arranged for help with household chores. I was prepared for my sleepless nights — at least […]

Does the IRS Accept Scanned Documents?

Written by Nickel - 9 Comments

I’ve spent a good bit of time digitizing paperwork over the past couple of years. My primary weapon in this battle has been a sheet-fed scanner, though I sometimes snap pics with my iPhone and turn them into “scanned” pdfs using JotNot. While it feels to good to be working toward a paperless financial world, […]

Three Free Tools for Perfect Time Management

Written by Neal Frankle - 2 Comments

The most valuable asset you have is time. If you’re a business owner, the most valuable asset you’ve got is your time and the time of the people on your staff. If you work for someone else, are thinking about being self-employed, or if you stay at home, time is equally precious. I would argue […]

The next time you go to a book store, take a stroll through the “Personal Finance” section. You’ll literally see hundreds of books all saying just about the same thing.
