I tried a simple trick to save $10 every time I grocery shop—and it worked

Emmie Martin

Saving money at the grocery store can be as easy as adding one step to your shopping routine: Pause before checking out and put back three to five items you don't need. Each time you do this, you'll save money. Because April is financial literacy month and I'm inspired by the CNBC  "SavingUp" contest , I've been going over some of my favorite easy ways to save money, and I remembered this tip from Cherie Lowe, author of "Slaying the Debt Dragon: How One Family Conquered Their Money Monster and Found an Inspired Happily Ever After," who shares her own story of financial freedom on her blog, Queen of Free .

    Do the math. Here's why you shouldn't claim Social Security at 62

    Many would-be beneficiaries use a break-even analysis which, in essence, tells them the age (or ages) when it makes the most financial sense to claim benefits. Using this sort of analysis can be helpful. But experts say it shouldn't be the only factor you consider when deciding when to apply for Social Security. You start the analysis by calculating what your cumulative benefits would be based on the age you apply for Social Security.

    Trump’s stock market still lags Obama’s, but that could be about to change

    Donald Trump loves telling us all about how fantastic the stock market has done under his leadership. McBride, for his part, says he doesn't believe the market is a great measure of policy performance, but he acknowledges that some, including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, do. “My view is there are many measures of success — and that the economy needs to work well for a majority of the people — not just stock investors,” McBride explained in a “just for fun” blog post over the weekend.

    Millions of Barrels of Iranian Oil Are Piled Up in China’s Ports

    Two and a half months after the White House banned the purchase of Iran's oil, the nation's crude is continuing to be sent to China where it's being put into what's known as “bonded storage,” say people familiar with operations at several Chinese ports. This oil doesn't cross local customs or show up in the nation's import data and is not necessarily in breach of sanctions. The store of oil has the potential to push down global prices if Chinese refiners decide to draw on it, even as Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies curb production amid slowing growth in major economies.
