While financial planners will discuss how to properly invest to plan for your future, Jeff Yeager says you should watch your spending right now. He holds the title as the "Ultimate Cheapskate" and is a regular on Public Radio across the country. During a recent stop in Laramie on behalf of Wyoming AARP,  he told Bob Beck that everyone can spend less.

During his state of the state message Governor Matt Mead said that Wyoming is doing well.  He said Wyoming does not have the severe budget constraints that other statesface, but that a downturn in projected revenue means that the state has to curb its spending.

“I have not recommended deep across the board cuts to agencies,” Mead said. “Instead I used a targeted approach identifying those areas where we could slow or even reduce growth.  Some cuts have been made, but we should distinguish between cuts and reducing growth.  There is a real difference.”
