Minneapolis(March 4, 2014) – More than half of Americans surveyed say they are saving up to an average of $185 per month by consciously cutting back on eating out, entertainment and clothing, according to the Financial Trade-Offs study released today by Ameriprise Financial (NYSE: AMP). The survey found encouraging insights that indicate people are making a conscious effort to spend less discretionary income in order to save more. However, it also uncovered that many Americans haven’t cut back on areas that can make the biggest impact on their savings. The multi-generational study surveyed Americans ages 25 to 67 with at least $25,000 in investible assets and access to an employer-sponsored retirement plan.*
