The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Haircut Edition

I love the feel of a simple haircut. I love the sensation of the hair leaving my head. I love running my fingers through my newly-shortened hair. I love the sense of wind blowing through the shortened hair, causing a sensation on my scalp that I haven’t felt in a while.

It’s really the simple things that make life worthwhile.

Should I Get a Prenup? Yes! I think there’s actually a pretty compelling argument for a prenupital agreement as a form of “marital insurance.” It’s similar to the logic of why you would buy car insurance – you don’t intend to wreck your car or have a storm knock a tree onto it, but why not have protection against it in case it happens?

Your Do Over Guide: What Would You Do Differently? I’ve actually had a draft of a post going over this very topic. What would I do differently if I could stick myself into my 18 year old body again. If I could turn the clock back to 1996, what would I do differently? This great post has made my wheels start turning again. (@ watson inc.)

A Sucker Punch of Personal Finance to America Has the economic downturn made America more conscious of personal finances? I think the answer is yes, but I think that there will be a rollback pretty quickly when the economy improves. (@ lazy man and money)

After You’ve Done Your Best… If you’ve built everything in your life around avoiding failure, you’ve probably succeeded at that, but you’ve likely also avoided big successes, too. (@ seth godin)

What to Do with a Wedding Dress? My wife’s dress is still hanging in the closet. I think there’s an emotional tie there that’s pretty deep, not so much as a symbol of the wedding, but as a symbol of the marriage. (@ unclutterer)

  1. Thanks for mentioning me here Trent! As an FYI, my girlfriend doesn’t think she would want to sign a prenup. Dealbreaker?

    If you went back and did things differently, you wouldn’t learn the same lessons that you’ve learned by doing them your way the first time. Paradox?

  3. Debbie M says:

    @Kevin, people get weirdly emotional about some things, and one common thing to get weirded out about is prenups. My boyfriend wouldn’t want one, but I don’t have kids or a lot of assets, and we both have a long history of fair break-ups, so I’m not pushing it.
