I heard a statistic on the Today show this morning that said in 1980, Americans were saving $10 out of every $100. In 2008, Americans are saving .60 of every $100. The lady reporting the story said there was even a time when savings was in the negative. I guess with the way we spend money, that's not hard to believe.
But, along with probably most of you, my mind has been on saving and reducing and reusing lately. I'm slowly learning how to use coupons and I've found a couple of websites that help. I subscribe to the Sunday paper, but I've heard you can save so much more if you order 3 or 4 copies of the Sunday paper. I've started to conserve on things around the house and cut down on things we really don't need. I'm on a mission. I want to be debt free!!
We're on our way with no car payments. Now we're on to our student loans that are halfway paid off. And eventually.... our house! Can you imagine what a feeling of peace that would be? No mortgage payment!! Ahhhhhh...no mortgage payment.
Ok...so what are your best money saving tips?
