Can you save money?

Not really. - Apr 12, 2016
No. - Mar 23, 2016
Sort of. A two income family can. - Nov 18, 2014
This post is expensive, but (like anywhere) you can save money if you try. If you never go out to lunch with your coworkers, dinner with friends, don't drink alcohol, eat only pasta, (veggies are pricey), don't drive a car, and do no traveling --- sure, you can save plenty. - Apr 10, 2013
No, quite the contrary - Aug 14, 2010
I've been able to. There really isn't much to buy locally, other than day-to-day items. My money goes for travelling, esp. to Turkey (2-hr direct flight), Cyprus (1 hr), Jordan (3-hr drive) and Egypt (2-hr flight to Cairo). - Jul 26, 2010

Sure, it you want to. - Jul 2, 2008
