Easy Ways to Save Money on Everyday Items

Something I’m always trying to is save a little bit of money. I went through a time in my college and early adult years when I would overspend a lot and then spend the next five days spending as little as possible until my next check!

That said, October will always be special to me, and I can’t think of a better time to share another edition of “Currently…” Read on and tell me what you’re up to this first week of October!
