When I was asked to be a guest blogger for CDH Designs “Money Saving Mondays,” I immediately thought of all the big things people can do to put themselves in better financial places. And all of those things are great, but can be intimidating for many people—myself included.
A dear friend of mine recently moved out of her parents’ house and into her very first apartment. We were both going grocery shopping on Monday, so I asked if she wanted to go together. I didn’t realize it at first, but this is the first time she’s ever had to do regular grocery shopping for herself.
My friend is about to embark on a new chapter in life, and I started thinking about the most important things I could tell her as she sets out. I wish I could tell my past self these things, but my time machine is broken at the moment.
