Hate Amazon? Try Living Without It

Excerpt from this article:

It’s not that we have extra time and money to shop; we have precisely the opposite. A few years ago, my 85-year-old father had a stroke that forever altered his daily life. Even though he has a generous, old-economy pension, he now barely breaks even each month, thanks to six figures of annual medical expenses, including 24-hour care at home. Often, when my dad needs something, he needs it now. He can’t shop on his own, and his caretaker can’t spend her life going to specialty pharmacies and medical supply stores. So Amazon Prime has been his lifeline.

Time Well $pent

Excerpt from this article:

We’ve all been there. You’re shopping online, and the buy button is so easy to click, and before you know it, you’ve spent an embarrassing amount of your hard-earned money on useless stuff that you didn’t even want.

Inspired by the Time Well Spent movement, Greg Greiner and I built a Chrome extension that helps you save your money (and your time). Enter your pay frequency and salary and it will automatically convert prices on all websites to time. You’ll see how many days, minutes, hours it takes you to earn the listed dollar amount.
