How to be frugal without wasting your time

first_img 33SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr A lot of people think frugality is about saving money at the cost of your time: you spend all day clipping coupons just to save a couple bucks on your groceries. That’s not frugal at all. Your time is precious—more precious than money—and true frugality is about using both your time and money wisely. Here’s how.Pick the Methods With the Biggest PayoffYou’ve probably heard the saying, “penny wise, pound foolish.” This means going out of your way to save $5 on gas when you have a $500 car payment. Or buying nothing but Ramen for the week when you mindlessly spend $300 on booze every month (not that I’d know anything about that). The point is: it’s a waste of time to scrimp and save on the pennies when you’re blowing big money like it’s nothing.When you’re trying to shrink your budget, you want to focus on the big stuff: the categories with the largest payoff. These are typically the three most expensive categories in your budget: continue reading »last_img read more

Eddie Jones five minutes short against All Blacks but time is on his side

first_imgfeatures England 15-16 New Zealand: how the players rated at Twickenham Read more Reuse this content England denied by All Blacks and late decision in Twickenham thriller Topics Share on WhatsApp Share on Messenger The rain came 30 minutes before kick‑off but the storm broke only when the match started, the first collision the opening crack of thunder. It blew for two hours until, in the very end, England lost a brilliantly entertaining, brutally competitive game, 16-15. They had pushed the best team in the world right to the brink. Back in 2016, Eddie Jones promised that “everything we are doing now is about coming up with a game to beat New Zealand, to make them uncomfortable. You can and hopefully will see that by 2018.” Two years later, England were two points away from making good on his promise. Even so, Jones said he was proud of them. And rightly so.There have been times this year when it felt like this match against the All Blacks had come 12 months too late. Last year England were so keen, so confident, that there were people who wanted to bump the All Blacks’ autumn match against the Barbarians just so England could get in an early shot at them. But the team have had a long, rough 12 months, suffering losses to Scotland, Ireland, France, and South Africa. The team that reached a peak in the world rankings when they beat Scotland by 40 points at Twickenham for their 18th straight win last March belongs to a different era. Half of that side are gone now: four injured, three dropped, another retired. Support The Guardian Read more Since you’re here… So this autumn it is almost as if Jones is starting over. And in that light, the first 30 minutes were a revelation. That stretch was as good as anything England have produced since he took charge. They exploded into a 15-0 lead, one try a stiletto blow, the other the bludgeon of a blunt club. Ben Youngs set up the first one when he spotted that Damian McKenzie had drifted out of position at full-back and put a fine, long, looping pass through to Chris Ashton. And then forwards won the second with a drive from a lineout. England’s backs came rushing in to help them out, one by one. By the time they reached the try-line England had 13 men swarming behind the ball.Every Englishman out there was playing well. But in the middle them all, one of the rookies, Sam Underhill, was having the match of his young life. Underhill, only just back in the team as a replacement for Tom Curry, had a barnstorming game. He is a man who seems to have been put on Earth for just one purpose – to make tackles. And Underhill does not make them so much as smash, crash and batter them. He hammered McKenzie down so often that the All Black will be checking over his shoulder when he gets into bed for fear that Underhill’s about to come charging out of the bathroom and get him again.Being hit by Underhill must be like being tackled by an avalanche. There is not much you can do about it other than brace and pray you come up breathing. Late in the second half, he proved that he knows what do when he has got the ball too. Courtney Lawes charged down TJ Perenara’s kick, and Underhill caught the rebound. He was one long sprint away from the try-line, so he set off towards it, lumbering along as fast as his aching legs would carry him. Underhill had done so much work already it was a surprise he could still manage to stand, let alone run, and he seemed to go almost in slow motion. … we have a small favour to ask.

Barrett, World Rugby’s player of the year in 2016 and 2017, one of the most gifted backs ever to play the game. But Underhill did him, made him look a rube. He stepped one way, sold him the dummy, and cut the other and dived over the line. It was one of the great tries. Or it would have been, if Lawes had not been fractionally offside. It was the TMO who pointed it out. England’s fans were furious. They had been in ornery mood all afternoon. The haka was drowned out by their chorus of Swing Low and when the whistle finally went, the referee, Jérôme Garcès, was roundly booed. New Zealand rugby union team Jones, though, had the good grace not to complain about it afterwards. And in truth, it was not the TMO’s intervention that cost England so much as the sloppy mistakes they made as the second half wore on. Dylan Hartley came off at half-time and, once he had gone, England’s lineout went horribly wrong. In the second half, it was a 50-50 proposition. Partly because Hartley’s replacement, Jamie George, just was not accurate enough with his throwing, but also because Brodie Retallick did such a good job of challenging for the ball in the air. England kept coming, all the same, and outplayed New Zealand in the last 20 minutes, when the All Blacks usually run away with the game.Jones argued that if England only had another five minutes, they might even have won. And he is right, they were coming on strong. The good news is that even if they didn’t have five minutes they needed for this match, they do have another 12 months before the World Cup. Comes around. And soon enough, some of those injured players will be back, too, the likes of Anthony Watson and Jonathan Joseph, Billy and Mako Vunipola. England have turned the corner this autumn. This match felt like a watershed, a loss they will be all the stronger for in the weeks and months ahead.• This article was amended on 12 November 2018.
