What is the Secret to Saving Money

What is the Secret to Saving Money - "It's not how much you earn, it's how you spend it". Many will tell you this because it makes a good point. People making very little can still save money while those with much higher incomes incur more debt. The secret to saving is all about managing your money the right way.

Discipline is very important and impulse buys are your enemy. Money can be saved in nearly all aspects of our lives. Simple things can go a long way. For instance, many of us are on contracts for a whole raft of things from mobile phones to internet plans. Most of the time the contract finishes and people don't bother to get a new one. Calling up your gas company, electricity company, mobile phone carrier, internet service provider and re-negotiating your contracts can save you a lot of money monthly. Money that could be going in to savings.

Setting up a savings account which automatically takes out $15 every time you get your wages is a good tip. You miss the small amount of money, however, after a while you will realize you have saved a lot.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
