Time Is Money Tells Your How Many Hours of Work It Takes to Buy Stuff

When shopping, especially on the internet, it’s easy to lose track of how expensive something really is. It’s easy to see a $50 price drop on something that makes you think that a $450 toy is somehow “cheap.” The Time Is Money Chrome extension aims to fix that particular problem by showing you how many hours of work something will cost you.

Yup, you put in either your hourly rate, or your weekly pay and how many hours you work, and the extension automatically shows you that that sweet Asus G751 with the GTX 980M and the 512 GB SSD would cost you 413 hours and 40 minutes at minimum wage, or 119 hours and 50 minutes if you pull in the median U.S. household income of $52,000. Suddenly it seems wiser to go for the one with a 970M and no SSD that will take you half as much time to earn.
