Since Mother's Day is all about recognizing everything that moms give to those they love throughout the year, redplum.com is paying homage this Mother’s Day to all the tips and tricks our moms taught us about saving. Featured on this special page are 100 Things My Mom Told Me About Saving, including:
- Always remember, the price of an item is merely a suggestion. The actual price is only what YOU are willing to spend on it;
- Understand the difference between an expense and an investment; an expense just costs money, an investment costs money and makes money;
- Take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves;
- Before you make a big purchase…..sleep on it;
- Buy a programmable thermostat and wear a sweater;
- Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship;
- Never carry your keys in your coat pocket. It will make them wear out before the coat does; and much more.
This Mother’s Day, remember what mom taught you and make your Mother’s Day purchase a savvy one.
