MP Dunleavey is one of my favorite writers on MSN Money. Here is a little blurb from this article that she wrote, "How much you save has little to do with how much you make, a study suggests. So forget the excuses; here's a roadmap for finding money you didn't know you had."
This is the article that the above blurb comes from: money central. The title of the article is:
"The Basics: 20 ways to save on a shoestring."
In this article, she lists some terrific ideas, like:
- Re-evaluate. Re-evaluate. Re-evaluate
- Don't overpay your taxes
- Seek inspiration
- Cry poverty -- with style
Check out the above article and you'll find some great ideas on how to turn your dimes into dollars!!
