Daylight Savings Time is Here!
13th Mar 2016
Clocks across the country were moved forward one hour on Sunday, March 13 for the annual Daylight Savings Time occurrence. While many would choose to leave well enough alone, others enjoy the time switch because it extends an extra hour of daylight for all to enjoy.
Have you ever wondered who came up with the spring forward and fall back plan? Well, in 1784 it was none other than Benjamin Franklin. He was a French ambassador and noticed while he was on a trip he was always waking up to the sun every morning at 6am. This, of course, is something he was not accustomed to and quite frankly, got him excited about many possibilities for those who were thrifty.
Franklin was quite a frugal fellow. He immediately thought of ways adding an extra hour could save money. For instance, Franklin liked the idea of retiring to bed an hour early and waking up an hour early to save money on candle usage which was a good portion of someone’s budget.
Speaking of budgets, it doesn’t take too much to tidy up the closet to finish the year looking good.
