Are You Up For A (Savings) Challenge?

Money Matters Monday KNOWSY Readers, and before I get to today's post, I have to ask the obvious question: Have you watched or are you watching any of the World Cup? If you are a regular reader of my posts, you already know that yes I am! This is definitely shaping up to being an interesting World Cup, with thrills, chills and most definitely spills! The talent from some teams have shown themselves early, the Netherlands comes to mind (I definitely picked them over Spain, but they even did better than I expected). The game between host country Brazil against Croatia was closer than Brazil probably wanted, as well as Italy against England. Of course, my own homeland of Argentina played a very defensive minded first half (slowing down the pace), but making some changes in the second half to finally see Messi score! (only his second goal in World Cup play, but hopefully not his last!) ;)  Did any of you folks get a chance to see today's game between Ghana and the USA? I think that game literally had the three things I mentioned all in one game: Thrills, Chills and Spills!!
Lastly, still on the sport side of conversation, I have to congratulate the San Antonio Spurs (with fellow Argentine Manu Ginobili) on winning another NBA Finals Championship. Way to go!!
Now onto today's post, if you look back at the topics I tend to choose for Mondays, they tend to be more focused on Money Matters, today is no exception, however, this time there is a little bit of a twist and involves you fine folks to do your part (if you choose to accept a challenge) and see just how much you may save in a particular category. This challenge comes via one of my favorite sites: So go ahead and give it a try!
