I love this: How to be bold and make decisions. My favorite of the list is You Can Change Your Mind. Seriously, there are very few things in life that can't be undone - having kids is about the only one that comes to mind. Every job can be quit, every new city can be moved away from, relationships can be ended and mended most of the time. Give something new a try!

I totally use YouTube for how-to videos! I haven't used one to save money like this Consumerist reader but I learned how to pack a moving truck, cut and clean a leek, take apart my computer monitor, and lots of other stuff.

Stuff I needed to hear this week: it's so much easier to simplify than to organize, a recipe for reclaiming  your time for success, the upside of quitting and why you should do it more often.

The Consumerist has a great step-by-step guide on how to close the accounts of a deceased relative. Not a pleasant topic, but an important one.

You can also check out my StumbleUpon page for other posts I've stumbled across this week!

  1. Learning to make decisions was a big part of wedding planning for me. It's amazing how much time we waste over mundane decisions that really have little impact on our lives, let alone the bigger, bolder decisions to be made. You're right in that most decisions can be undone, and really, mistakes aren't the worst thing in the world either. We can learn a lot from them.

    I had to simplify when we moved into our current house because there was so little closet space, and I definitely do not miss the extra clothes and stuff.
