You may think reading and writing are boring; in fact, everyone at some point may think reading and writing are absolutely daunting. Reading gains knowledge, while writing can create records of the knowledge you gained. Suggestions on what to read and write about in your spare time can be about life, love and sex, what you learned in school or a book you recently read! The more you read and write, the more of a habit it will be if you prefer typing or writing on a paper. According to Psychology Today, writing is proven to make one smarter because it can lead better thinking and communicating. So, read and write on!

Whether the clothes don’t fit or you want to make extra cash, you can always donate clothes to many retail or thrift stores. Stores such as Goodwill, Plato’s Closet, Poshmark and even Mercari are all great options. Even better, gather some of your friends or family around. Remember this saying: “Your trash can be someone else’s treasure!”

This is crucial and such a broad topic to discuss. Having a monthly budget AND STICKING WITH IT not only set a great goal, but you save money for when emergencies come around. Especially when the spring semester is here, you have to prepare for your next school year’s expenses. It sounds scary at first, but once you get everything organized with your budget, it’ll be okay! A great recommendation would be reading this amazing book by Carl Siegel, Why Didn’t They Teach Me This In School?
