How to use savvy in a sentence?

  1. Hillary Berman:

    If you aren't a savvy consumer, things can get very costly, very quickly.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I often hear people debating about the glass half-full or half-empty, which makes me wonder whether they would ever notice a full pitcher sitting right next to that half-empty or half-full glass. With total attention focused on half-empty or half-full glass, it's obviously too difficult for them to notice anything else. In real world, Life offers you millions of wonderful opportunities besides what you already have - sometimes even bigger and better than you had ever thought before....just like a full pitcher around the corner. In my view, it's savvy to grab the full pitcher that can fill up the glass several times over, instead of getting worried up about half-full or half-empty glass held in your hand. Be smart to find that full pitcher around, seize it as quickly as you can, and then enjoy the party!

  3. Sam Nunberg:

    He thought he could defend the return, i inferred from the conversation that he believed that it was a low number and he'd look savvy.

  4. Ross Denton:

    They're pretty savvy about this, it's quite a calculated process.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    In real world, the successful persons are those who adapt to the changes in their environment smartly and most effectively, and surely not those who resist mindlessly. No matter how strong, mighty and intelligent you may be, you are still vulnerable to the inevitable continuous changes in our world that are way beyond your control. History teaches us that even mighty dinosaurs, who emerged over 200 million years ago and ruled our planet for 135 million years, could not survive as they were unable to adapt to changes. So be Smart and Savvy to survive in today's fast paced dynamic world. Embrace the changes, even though you are stepping out of your comfort zone, and operating outside your element. Your strategic adaptation to changes, and effective Management of Change contain the seedlings to your survival and success. Cheers, my friend!
