Wisdom on wealth

It is traditional to study one of each of the six chapters of Pirkei Avos on the Shabbatot between Pesach and Shavuous. Here's one example of how their insight still applies. In (4.1) there are several definitions, among them, "Eizehu ashir, hasameach bechelko." [Who is weatlthy? He who is
happy with his lot.] The understanding behind that definition is echoed in aquote from a guest post by Ami Kim on http://www.getrichslowly.org/blog/2010/04/21/are-we-there-yet-how-will-you-know-when-youre-rich/"Wealth means being able to say, 'I have enough.'"

Which do you prefer: saving money or saving wait time?

 How much is it worth to jump a line?  Actually this is an interesting question with respect to attitudes about money that sometimes cause conflicts between couples.  See additional questions in the "Saver vs. Spender, What's  Your Score?" article at kallahmagazine.com/MoneyMatters.htm

So is jumping a line worth $350?  For some it is.  Find out more at http://www.examiner.com/x-18522-NY-Jewish-Bridal-Examiner~y2010m4d14-Which-do-you-prefer-saving-money-or-saving-wait-time

The ultimate Lashon Hara site

I wouldn't want to link to it directly here.  Instead, you can read about it at http://www.internetevolution.com/author.asp?section_id=466&doc_id=190164  Sounds horrific, but I believe there are already things like this in specific contexts, such as public reviews of university and even high school instructors.
