The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: Nap Edition

Lately, I’ve been trying to train myself to take a nap during the day, a short half hour one about two in the afternoon. My problem thus far is that I fall asleep for far too long, then I stay up later at night. Anyway, on with personal finance posts.

    Did the money crashers app make anyone else depressed?

    Thanks for the link. The only thing I think Kimber’s 9 Simple Ways article needs is a picture of a hot guy from Men’s health…

  3. You could always try the polyphasic sleep experiment like Steve Pavlina did. It’s where you sleep only 2 hours a day spread evenly across the day (like 6 naps of 20 min each). ;)

    So, I mostly kept the default settings in the “How long will it take for you to be a millionaire?” app. Taking just a modest estimate of my savings (i.e., just counting what I am saving now, not what I will be saving when my student loans are paid off in a few years), I was told I could be a millionaire by age 56. This was the part that amused me:

    You could still be a millionaire at age 65 if

    – Decrease the amount you invest now to $0 , or
    – Decrease your monthly investment to $521 , or
    – Achieve a rate of return of 3.55%.

    Good to know how much I can lower the bar. =)

  5. Trent, I use pzizz. It rocks. And it has a built-in “wake up” beep at the end of it. If you can sleep through that beep, there’s something wrong!
