It really says something about American consumer culture when it's news that people are actually saving their money. I suppose it's better late than never, and a new study from First Command Financial Services shows that people are starting to save more and pay off their debt loads. In September, Americans put an average $901 more into short-term savings than in August — an increase of nearly 20 percent! Even more impressive, retirement savings deposits rose more than 50 percent month over month.
Have you increased the amount of money you put in to savings?
