Top 10 Ways To Save

Americans aren't buying it - literally! Americans expect the economy to get even worse, according to a survey released by Harris Interactive. The Harris poll reveals Americans saving more since February of this year in more ways then one. With no expectations of recovery in sight, many are buckling down to cut costs and save in every way possible.  

Over three quarters (67%) of Americans are buying more generic brands, the highest number reported doing so in two years. Almost half of Americans are packing their lunch and making fewer trips to the hair stylist, while 1 in 5 Americans have stopped buying a morning coffee.
