Some quick links from my weekend reading:

Cutbacks and the Value of Time
OverTheCubicleWall is being offered a voluntary work reduction to 32 hours per week. Would you take such an offer if presented to you? It’s an interesting question. I would seriously consider it. I’d probably rather have an extra month of unpaid vacation to allocate as I wish.

Where, oh where, does our $exy money go?!
J also did the dirty work and figured out how much they spend: about $4,700 per month if you don’t count savings as an expense. A worthy exercise for all.

Quiz: Are You the Entrepreneurial “Type”?
A very insightful quiz about entrepreneurs. Spoiler alert: My favorite part was that the most common reason for becoming an entrepreneur is the wish to avoid working for others, and not to make the most money. I agree with that.

Fama/French Blog
If you are a passive investing geek, you should know the names of Drs. Fama and French. And now they have a blog, where they answer some timely questions in the current market. Ex. Is the market turmoil a sign that markets are not efficient?

Sam the Cooking Guy: Cooking Videos
Cut out cable TV and miss Food Network? Here are some simple recipes with videos. I like the layout and use it for ideas. Less overwhelming than AllRecipes.

  1. I think the heading has a typo: Weeking should be Weekend.

  2. And you know what? It’s amazing how great it feels once you know *exactly* how much you’re spending each month. It may not be the funnest way to spend a few hours, but once you’ve finished it’s easy peasy tracking it going forward 🙂 Now it’s just a matter of trying to spend LESS each month….yikes.

    Thanks for the link to my post!

  4. We get Sam the Cooking Guy on TV here and I can tell he is a total genius when it comes to cooking. His recipes are based on easy to cook and tasty meals. Plus, he is very cost conscious.
