MANAGING YOUR STUFF
Do I want this stuff? Do I need this stuff? Should I support this stuff? With all the STUFF out there, it's easy to get confused about the ins and outs of managing your money. Here are three smart ways to manage money whether your 16 or 76!
Save for Stuff!
Instead of buying a little item you may not need, save your money for what you really want. Start with a small goal and work your way up to something bigger.
If you do decide to buy anything, make sure you check prices online and always ask about price matching. Don't be afraid to buy things second hand or used from secure and verifiable websites. Also, know before you go out how much you want to spend to keep from using all your money on something you do not need.
Share your Stuff!
Do your research before you decide to support a cause with your money. Starting good habits of giving to charities and causes now builds up character and good habits for the future. Running low on cash? Don't worry, many companies also need volunteers for tasks you can do that will look good when applying for college or jobs in the future.
