Too Much Grooming

“While grooming is important, over time that $50 a week can really add up. A few changes can make a big difference. Rather than getting your hair and nails done every week, you may want to skip a week and maintain it on your own during the off weeks,” said Owens, author of A Purse of Your Own. “Think about it this way: $50 a month is $600 a year, which, when put in a savings account over five years, can be your down payment on your new home or car.”
