KAIT's objective of this month -- long series of reports is to make area resident spending savy by offering tips on ways to save money in almost all aspects of lifes.

News anchor Dianna Davis was present for the broadcast held at the Highland Square. She visited with business owners and offered tips such as cutting down on long distance vacations and utilizing things closer to home, such as the many things offered in the Hardy area, including the Spring River.
