課文:

Are you eager to save money? Many people are. Here are a few simple ways to do that and still enjoy life!

Drink more water

Instead of buying tea or coffee with a meal, drink water. Water is better for your health, and drinking it saves you money.

eager:迫切的、渴望的、急切的

Don’t go out to eat

Perhaps you enjoy hosting parties. Invite your friends over to your house instead of a restaurant. You can have a potluck and play games. It is an ideal way to have fun, but at a lower cost.

Keep your change

Put all of your loose change in a jar. If you set aside just US$5 a week, you can save lots of money over time. Once in a while, deposit the change in the bank.

potluck:每人帶一道菜聚餐、百樂餐
ideal:理想的、完美的(典範)
loose change:零錢、硬幣
jar:罐、途、罈
set aside:撥出、挪出、分別出來、特別留出來
aside:旁邊
over time:隨時間(增加)
deposit:存錢、儲蓄

Know how much you spend

How much money do you spend every week? Don’t know? Track your spending. You can use a finance-tracking app like BUDGET, Learnvest or Mint. Then you will know how much money you can spend. If you don’t have the cash, don’t buy something.

Make small changes in your life, and watch your money grow.


文法:
Don’t know?
(你不知道嗎?)

特別補充:
withdraw
:提款
restaurantese:餐飲業者的專有名詞
legalese:法律上使用的行話或術語
This hamburger is growing a beard!:這份餐點已經快要冷掉了!
