Best way to save money? Don’t spend it.
And the best way not to spend money? Avoid expensive but common big-ticket items — things many of us buy without a second thought.
In this week’s “Money” podcast, we’re going to talk about avoiding blowing big bucks on everyday purchases, from cars to watches.
As usual, I share the broadcast booth with longtime financial journalist and fellow podcaster Miranda Marquit.
Sit back, relax and give it a listen!

Not familiar with podcasts?
A podcast is basically a radio show you can listen to anytime, either by downloading it to your smartphone or other device, or listening online.
They’re totally free. They can be any length (ours are typically just under a half-hour), feature any number of people and cover any topic you can possibly think of. You can listen at home, in the car, while jogging or, if you’re like me, when riding your bike.
If you haven’t listened to a podcast yet, give it a try, then subscribe to ours. You’ll be glad you did!
