About Saving Money

Reader share their penny pinching tips

  • “Decide how much you will be able to save every pay period and then put that amount aside when you are paid. If you regularly do this, you will eventually have a nest egg.” – Mary Jo Wright, California
  • “Don’t overspend all of your money. If you have a dollar, you should spend only $.50 and save $.50.” – Shirley Edwards, Brooklyn, NY
  • “I record all of my expenses into a few categories. This gave me a full picture of where my money was spent. You’ll learn to spend money on what you need, instead of what you want.” – Audrey C. Kim, Bridgewater, NJ
