Are you saving more now ? Talk to Nancy Trejos from the Washington Post

Nancy Trejos looking for some folks who may have made some changes in saving habits die to the current economic situation. Here is the message from Nancy:

How Americans are now saving more and spending less. Economists are expecting the savings rate to increase from below zero to as high as 5 percent. So I am searching for some savers!

If so, and if they live in the DC, Maryland, Virginia area, would you be willing to ask them if they would talk to me?

Please let me know if you would like to talk to her and I will send you her email.  If you have any personal finance questions, you can send them to her too through her column http://cli.gs/Gz8MDm . Want to something more than just 401k and credit cards head over to her column and send her a question. Feeling shy I can connect you if you leave a comment here.

My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flight, I divide …
