Im new to blender, so please explain the answer clearly. I don't know what I did, but now, my meshes only move in Blender Units - it's understandably annoying. The only way they move more or less freely is when I hold the control Key.

This is from snapping. You must've accidently turned it on. Click the magnet again to turn it off. You can find it at the bottom of the 3D viewport (the main window.)

When you know it's on, snapping is a helpful tool to move stuff exact distances without having to type it in.
