You look familiar, have we met? We used to be friends...remember? You used to love dropping coins in me as a kid. Saving was fun then- what happened? I know it's harder now. You absolutely had to have those shoes in every color. That big screen TV, the latest cell phone- how did you survive without them? I've seen your photos- your clothes are stylin' and your friends are too. You really have it together. I appreciate the finer things too, just check out my suit. But there is a fine line between enjoying the good things and falling into debt. That's why I want to help you. There is a smart way to get what you want - SAVE for it! Set a savings goal for that special purchase before you buy. Don't let debt get you down. Don't spend everything you have. Remember to Feed the Pig. No, I'm not asking for food. I'm asking you to feed your savings regularly- starting now. Here's why: My friends at the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants asked me to get all of of my friends to think about saving. Saving money is the key to your financial future.
