Loved this episode, will definitely be putting a fair chunk of it to use (in a "I have basically no money to spend on it" way 😅) #TIL @nprlifekit The fact that I've already decided to learn to do my own #tailoring since I was recently gifted a sewing machine will hopefully help ^_^

Really great episode, I've certainly noticed that after hours of binging YouTube I often feel "bleh" but now I have a much better understanding of why. @nprlifekit

Great episode, I just wish I had this info before my great-grandmother passed, but I'll be sure to make use of it with the #family that's still living 😊 #lifetips #thankful

Daylight savings time vs standard time messes up my sleep, wake times. Plus my father worked shift work, so as a child my schedule changed weekly. As a natural night owl, my sleep, wake schedule is completely screwed up.

I work in a company that has a 9/80 schedule. what that means that in a 2 week period, first week we work Mon-Thur 9 hrs each day, Friday 8 hrs (Total 44hrs. No OT pay.) Then second week, Mon-Thur 9 hrs each day and then have Friday off (36 hrs for that week). A total of 80hrs worked in the 2 week paid period. I feel like adding that extra hour at the end of each day to benefit the fact of having a Friday off every other week without losing work time is totally worth it. That extra "Day Off" does make a difference in my work life I would say, I can choose to dedicate my day off of work on my start up business or simply relax and spend more time with my kids. I would encourage employers to give it a try with their company. As soon as my business take hold I'm most definitely going to apply that.

I prefer Dave Ramsey's way instead. family should only have a joint account, a lifelong commitment and openness. I can even imagine marrying a guy, who says "your" or "my" money!

Thanks for the info on the burn test....I thrift items often and I have done the burn test to figure natural vs man-made fabrics. I didn't know that is really how experts did it. I am kinda tickled that I figured that out on my own.

Such a tiny thing that can mean SO much!

I absolutely suggest this episode. I had a surgery beginning of last year and after I contacted the hospital finance assistance office they let me know that I qualified for a voucher that meant I didn't owe them anything personally. They just took the insurance payout and called it good.

I 100% agree with this premise. I think you missed the mark on the delivery of the message.
