We see what’s been happening. Outside is open and so is your wallet. Being inside for an entire year helped us save a lot of money (aside from the outrageous number of Amazon and online purchases) but since the doors of the world have been opened back up, we’ve been spending a lot more than we probably should. Well, we thought we’d help you spend more money by putting together a short list of ways you should be spending your money, because if you are going to spend, at the very least #spenddifferent.
