You and Your Money — Introduction - Kids
If you have any money left over, you can use it for fun and entertainment, but only up to a certain amount. Start tracking your spending to discover places where you may be unknowingly overspending.
Save your receipts and write your purchases in a spending journal, categorizing them so you can identify areas where you have a hard time keeping your spending in check. Look for discounts, coupons, and cheaper alternatives whenever you can. Save Up for Big Purchases: The ability to delay gratification will go along way in helping you be better with money. When you put off large purchases, rather than sacrificing more important essentials or putting the purchase on a credit card, you give yourself time to evaluate whether the purchase is necessary and even more time to compare prices.
By saving up rather than using credit, you avoid paying interest on the purchase. When you run out of cash, you simply turn to your credit cards without considering whether you can afford to pay the balance. How about you?
