Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday . . . 2:00 A.M to be exact.
Which means we lose an hour of sleep Saturday night.
Here are five tips to help you deal with the transition.
- Cut out caffeine. Make sure you don’t have any caffeine at least six hours before bed. It’s a good rule of thumb in general, but especially important this weekend.
- No alcohol either. Even just one drink can disturb your sleep. So skip the alcohol tomorrow night if you can.
- Eat light. Don’t eat anything for at least two or three hours before you plan to go to bed. Otherwise it can interfere with the quality of your sleep.
- Make your bed a place you want to sleep in. Meaning, fresh clean sheets . . . and no phones or iPads.
- Go to bed earlier. To minimize the impact of the time change, make a few gradual adjustments rather than one big one.
Go to bed 15 to 30 minutes earlier than usual TONIGHT, and again tomorrow.
You should be fully adjusted by Monday.

- Not having any money in savings.
- Waiting more than 20 minutes for a table at a restaurant.
- Cheap alcohol, unless it’s by choice . . . like you really WANT a Miller High Life.

We’ve all fantasized about buying something at a yard sale, paying next-to-nothing for it, then finding out it’s worth a fortune. Which is why this is so great.
A guy in Weymouth, Massachusetts named Phil LeClerc recently bought an antique desk at an auction for 40 bucks. (He looks to be in his early 50s. Weymouth is about 15 miles south of Boston.)
And while he was looking through the drawers for a missing knob, he found something else . . . over $127,000 in SAVINGS BONDS.
The amazing part is what he did next though. Because instead of cashing them in, Phil immediately called the auction house where he bought the desk . . . and asked if they could help track down the previous owner.
It turned out it was a 94-year-old, who recently decided to sell his house and all his stuff so he could afford to move into a nursing home. And his family had been searching for the savings bonds for YEARS.
Phil says that after he heard their story, he was even happier that he decided to do the right thing.
