"hoarding more cash". Is that an euphemism for "saving"?

Orem, UT

Living within your means.
Saving for a rainy day.
Not paying outrageous overdraft fees.
Thinking twice before going into debt for frivilous things.
Not running up a huge credit card bill.

Gee. Those things used to be called "common sense". Now they seem to be something new.

The truth is, while technically the recession ended a while ago, too many people feel like we are still in one. The Obama "recovery" if you can call it that, is anemic at best.
