    make the most of your hard-earned money

    involved sentence:
    As long as you know how to negotiate prices, you’ll be able to make the most of your hard-earned money.

    I learned the meaning of "make" in "make money" equals to that of earn. But at the above sentence, 'make the most of your hard-earned money" means "you can save your precious money"?

    'To make the most of' something means to use it the best way you can, to your advantage.
