Allow me to tell you a little bit about myself — Candee Lynn Wilson, aka The Saving Lady — ex- real estate agent, ex- mortgage broker, ex-insurance agent, ex-advertising executive, Internet entrepreneur wannabe and probably some other things that I’ve forgotten about. Chalk it up to age-related short-term memory loss.

I don’t have a rags-to-riches story to tell you. I am a retired divorcee who wishes now that I had someone to explain to me 50 years ago the importance of saving. I didn’t come to the saving game until it was almost too late – something I hope that you will avoid. When you reach the age of 40 or have a life-changing experience, immortality doesn’t seem quite as likely as it did when you were 20. Retirement is still some time away, but it is certainly much more visible. Dreams of world travel, time to pursue hobbies, everything that you could do if you just had the time, all begin to creep into your psyche.

Almost too late in life I learned the importance of saving and not spending myself into oblivion. I am here to help those of you who still have time on your side to do what it takes to create a financially secure lifestyle and, for those of you who are finding time running out, to get on a track that will ease your financial pressures.

There are ways to save money in every aspect of your life. I hope to reveal to you as many of them as I can, most of which I have used and am still using today. I will also draw on the advice of others who present viable ways to help more money stay in our pocket.

This site is only the beginning of a journey to enrich my visitors with the knowledge they will need to make their financial dreams come true.
