Why is a desk chair so important? Do you have back problems? Which came first the back problems or a bad chair? I worked in an office almost my entire working life and had good and bad chairs. Although I had a very good desk chair, it was not appropriate to sit in it for hours. After just a few hours, my posterior was numb and I needed a break! What did I do?
First, I visited office furniture stores and tried out different chairs. Most of which I did not like. They seemed cheap and had prices anywhere from $100-600! The salesman even told me that they not last very long. My son who can work 12-15 hours a day suggested a Herman Miller Aeron chair. New was out of the question, but I found one reasonably priced on Craigslist. I bought it several months ago and it was the best purchase I ever made. Sometimes, you just need to spend a little money!
How is your desk chair? When I visited my orthopedist for my pinched nerve diagnosis, I noticed he had an Aeron chair. I think that is the best testimonial a chair could have. Fortunately, I found some of the best articles of the week. This makes a good segue to today’s picks for Friday Night Links.
The following articles caught my attention:
Canadian Finance Blog –Are You planning for Your Retirement Lifestyle?
Cash Money Life – Blue Cash Everyday Card and Preferred Card from American Express
Debt Sucks – How to be a Frugal Student
Do Not Wait – Saving for Retirement With Your First Apprenticeship
Faith and Finance – Til Debt Do Us Part
The selection of blogs is up to the committee of one established by krantcents as a representative of the Academy of Frugal Journalistic Writers. That committee can be influenced by meaningful comments, signing up for my RSS feeds, backlinks, links, trackbacks, Facebook Likes, Twitter, Re-tweets, Digg, StumbleUpon, delicio, Yahoo Buzz, Google Bookmarks and other social media. If you plan on creating a single purpose political action committee (PAC) to buy advertising on my blog to solely influence the committee, please go ahead! Please understand it will not influence the results.
I read more than five hundred (500) articles a week and I highlight just five (5) in my Friday Night Links. Sometimes you need to spend a little money on a good desk chair! Thank you for reading Friday Night Links Desk Chair Edition.
