I really appreciate and applaud Jennifer Savage's musings on behalf of the financially beleaguered (Savage Money, July 23).
She beautifully blends sympathy for fellow sufferers with practical, grounded insights and easily applied advice. Her column this week about economic profiling accomplished the near-miracle of making me feel positive and successful about my own totally unexpected experience with homelessness, joblessness and social services a few years ago ... because I did do some of what she suggested, and it definitely helped me!
Wish I'd had access to all her ideas back then. And for anyone currently in the financial pits who hasn't read her columns? Do! They're invaluable.
