WSJ: “Finding time for personal finances”

Ramit Sethi · June 22nd, 2005

Terri Cullen, who previously covered IWillTeachYouToBeRich in the Wall Street Journal, writes a great new column on making time to manage your finances:

For my finances, that means scheduling a few hours once or twice month to tackle big decisions (researching where to invest for college, comparison shopping for insurance, updating my will), grabbing a half hour each week to take care of at least one routine duty (ordering a free credit report, dealing with paperwork for flex-spending account reimbursements), and grabbing a few minutes every day to fix problems and keep an eye on the books (monitoring accounts online, disputing a credit-account charge). And, thanks things like automatic bill payment, occasionally someone else shoulders the drudgery for me.
