Spend less than an hour on personal finance

Taking control of your personal finance doesn't have to be a chore. Take Ramit Sethi. This person is very knowledgeable about personal finance and offers this advice:

But I do like to keep an eye on my credit-card charges whenever there’s a human involved. So I keep my receipts whenever I go to restaurants and store them in a folder on my desk.
