  • Small changes can yield big savings

    The recent economic situation has many people trying to save more money.  In 2005, the personal savings rate had fallen to below 1 percent, indicating that many Americans were spending either all or even more than they were earning. 
    The current personal savings rate, nearly 6 percent, shows more Americans are building their savings.

    Selections from the school cafeteria don’t always tickle the taste buds. So, if you are a do-it-yourself kind of person who wants to pack your own lunch, here’s how.
    Plan ahead. Write down ideas for each school-day menu and review them with mom or dad to come up with a week’s worth. Go grocery shopping so you can help pick foods you like or want to try.
    Prepackaged foods aren’t always your best choice; they taste good and are easy to prepare., but many contain excessive quantities of calories, fat and salt.
