smart spending

Daily life -- saving every day

When you take a look at your checkbook register -- if you are like many of us -- you'll notice that you spend quite a chunk of your monthly income on little things that add up quickly.

We need to eat -- so groceries and eating out probably top the list of expenses. But, what about health costs, insurances, taking Fluffy to the vet or an occasional night out? Those budget items are important, too.

If you could rein in some of the costs on these items, you could probably stash away enough to take a fun family vacation.
