Finance Friday Live Episode 1 – Winter Savings

Episode 1 of Finance Friday was a success. I hope that those who watch are able to learn a few new ways to maximize their savings on their utility bills. I am so thankful to everyone who tuned in on such a short notice. Whenever you do a live video the scariest part is whether or not people will actually watch. I am so thankful that people were willing to tune in so I wanted to do a recap post and put all of the things I mentioned in the post in one spot so that there would be one location for people to view the resources discussed.

Below are a few products that will help maximize your savings on utility bills:
