Amid an economic downturn with increased unemployment, rising food prices and housing foreclosures, the nation’s consumers are focused on the bottom line — their own wallets. In a recent survey (1) conducted by The Pampered Chef, 86 percent of Americans living in the south said they’re making changes to help save money and relieve financial burdens for their families. Two of the primary changes consumers say they’re considering how they can feed their family for less and how they can bring in supplemental income.
With this in mind, The Pampered Chef has partnered with self-proclaimed “budget babe” Robyn Moreno, author of the newly-released book “Practically Posh: The Smart Girls’ Guide to a Glam Life,” to offer expert insights and tips on how to lead a budget-friendly lifestyle.
“We’re all feeling the pinch of the challenging economy,” Moreno said. “But consumers don’t have to panic, I’ve got simple tips to shrink spending, starting with the dinner table and also have smart recommendations for earning more income.”
