If you thought this title said “Rainy Day Fun [infographic],” and clicked over here expecting to view an infographic about puddle hopping, I’m sorry to inform you that you were wrong. We are about to talk money, so get uncomfortable. The following question was posed to a survey group: If you needed to come up with $2,000 for an unexpected expense, could you do it?
I’m sure there are plenty of future financial planners out there who say, “Why, yes, yes I could. Couldn’t YOU?” No, I couldn’t. So stop hassling me. Money and I have a very unfulfilling relationship wherein I always manage to feel that I have more than I actually do.
But, today’s infographic will reform me yet. My favorite part is the worksheet at the bottom, a guide for setting up a savings plan. It’s a very basic but helpful reminder (one I obviously needed) to carefully plan and take action, little by little. [via]Share This Infographic
Yelp is an internet trend that is enjoyed by many, but has taken to the status of obsession with some. While I do know some avid yelp users who are busy reviewing every restaurant, cafe, bar they go to, most people I know are passive yelp. A passive yelper is someone who reads reviews for an unknown place but doesn’t actually post reviews. Or maybe that is a lazy yelper? Who knows. This infographic isn’t about them (me). It is about the avid yelper. Everyone knows an avid yelper, the lunch mate who is on their phone reviewing just after the meal is over, checking in to every establishment we go to and attending yelp meet ups in new cities.
According to this infographic, yelpers should be an easy spot. In my experience, yelpers come in all different forms, but there are some key aspects to the infographic found on every yelper I know. Yelpers typically have their iPhone in hand at all time to review and to photograph/instagram their food. Yelpers may have sore fingers from said reviewing. Yelpers distended restaurant from all of the food needed for all of the reviewing. And most importantly, yelpers have sore feet from their adventures. Are any of you yelpers?

Were you thinking to yourself “I could really use another social media site”? Well you came to the right place because it seems there is another social media site taking the net by storm. I’ll admit I don’t know too much about, but I have been seeing Facebook posts about it. The website is called pinterest, the concept being you create a virtual bulletin board of stuff you find interesting, including anything from photos to links. Pininterest has quickly made an impact in the social commerce arena.
Today’s infographic shows us just how much pinterest has helped retailers. Enjoy today’s infographic![via]Share This Infographic
…and so does your dad. * According to a survery conducted by Esquire, 44% of Americans prefer to sleep naked. Are any of you surprised by this? You’d think that more people would like to sleep without the constraint and slight discomfort of clothing.
It seems more than half of people aren’t comfortable in this most basic, primal attire (or rather—lack thereof). Another surprise: more people than I thought keep using the same underwear for five to ten years at a time. (ew?)
A strange kind of insight comes from seeing statistics about people’s personal habits. Actions behind closed doors can enter a whole new arena of weirdness. Some of the statistics for our population may surprise you. Take a look at how America goes to bed! (via)Share This Infographic
When the ball dropped and the glorious year that is 2012 began, I had one goal in mind. Getting more exercise. 28 days in and I have yet to spend more than 5 minutes of my time on cardio. But with the help of this infographic, being a healthy and sexy marathon runner is looking a little more attainable.
Included in this infographic is a marathon training calendar. This twelve week program could get you in healthier shape and even marathon form. The internet is full of training videos as well, like this one. I was using this infographic primarily as a week to get back into shape, but if you’re more of a competitor, there’s also a calendar of upcoming marathons this year.
To all of you wishing for a healthier lifestyle, I’m there with you. Get off that couch, draw up a workout schedule, and lace em up! [Via]Share This Infographic
