Four Crucial Ways To Buckle Down On Your Bills And Save Money

This morning on TODAY, I spoke with Savannah Guthrie about four ways to save on bills. I believe time is money, so one of the services I highlighted was Unroll.me, a tool that helps cut down on email subscriptions that you may spend too much time looking at (maybe they even tempt you to do more online shopping). I also talked about ways to save on prescriptions, as well as monthly bills. Check out the video below for more. (You’ll also see my shoe get stuck in the TODAY set!)
