Might I recommend this article from Louise Harnby about “Too much told narrative can force the reader to experience a story through extraneous layers that add clutter rather than clarity”?

The State of the Economy

by Louis Jenkins

There might be some change on top of the dresser at the 
back, and we should check the washer and the dryer. Check
under the floor mats of the car. The couch cushions. I have 
some books and CDs I could sell, and there are a couple big
bags of aluminum cans in the basement, only trouble is that
there isn’t enough gas in the car to get around the block. I’m
expecting a check sometime next week, which, if we are careful,
will get us through to payday. In the meantime with your one—
dollar rebate check and a few coins we have enough to walk to 
the store and buy a quart of milk and a newspaper. On second
thought, forget the newspaper.
