It was mighty painful to watch former “Today” host Ann Curry deliver her tear-inducing goodbye message yesterday — especially alongside smug ice king Matt Lauer, who lacked the decency to give her a televised hug or demonstrate sincere compassion — but even worse to see the Daily Mail’s response to the anchor’s abrupt ousting. The day following Curry’s final broadcast, the U.K. publication posted a story with the headline, “Out with the old: Savannah Guthrie takes over Ann Curry’s co-host chair on the Today show… just a DAY after her tearful farewell.”

Help one another keep the pocketbook at bay by inspiring a little friendly competition and shared savings goals. Even if you just save a little, you’ll both be winners.
