This is an excellent article about saving IMHO. It’s geared towards retirement savings, but most of it applies to any kind of savings. Key points include:
1. If you are in your 30’s or 40s and your retirement savings isn’t in the 5 figures range, you need to change what you are doing.
2. Have a real plan, not just an attitude of “save as much as we can.”
3. Try to buy items that will help you continue to save money, like a crockpot, pressure cooker, energy saver appliances, home insulation, etc. (Click on label “gadgets that save money” below this post for ideas.)
4. Develop your skills in gardening, DIY, cooking, people skills, etc.
