100 Ways to Save Money

100 Ways To Save Money: Planning ahead use to be my kryptonite. Why on earth do I need to do that?! I’m a carefree kind of person. Planning? Blech!

And then I realized how much money I was throwing away, and that I wasn’t being carefree, I was being careless! Oh, the things I could have done with all that wasted money… It’s best not to dwell on that though. I’m currently working on losing weight and eating healthier, so planning ahead is integral.
