It is easy to say “I dont need to save” when you are in a higher tax bracket. It can seem as though money will always be there. However my wife and I, having read Smart Couples Finish Rich, have finally taken the basic steps to ensuring ourselves of a secure future. We pay ourselves first through our retirement program, as well as save about $35 per day in needless expenses. Instead of the latte, we make our own. Additionally, we save tons of money by bagging our lunches to work.
Between this and working to keep unnecessary overhead down, we were able to save two hundred thousand dollars last year alone! Compare this to the prior year which was less than half. Sure we have been told it is all relative, but it will make us better in the future.
Thanks for the book and the steps to succeed.
