Half of us are Saving Nothing!

I read today on that almost half of americans are not saving anything towards retirement.  I know there are situations where it can be challenging to save money, but you should be able to put at least $5 a week into a savings account for retirement.

Here are a list of things you can do to find an extra $5 week to put away:

  • Skip the latte.
  • Take a sack lunch to work every day.
  • Find a way of carpooling to work at least one day.
  • Go fishing and eat what you catch.
  • Grow a garden.

Here are a few ways you can make an extra $5 to put away each week:

  • Offer to mow a lawn.
  • Pick up cans in states that have deposits.
  • Pick up scrap and cash it in.
I could go on and on.  The point is, there is no reason every person can't save at least a little bit.
