I want to open up saving account to get a town house I will be on own and live with my cat and be happy .
I want to successfully work a job so that my guardian will let me have complete control of my money. That would be Christmas early for me haha. I want money that I can spend without having to present receipts. I like keeping things to myself, having a private life. This will be challenging but I stand for America and America stands for following your dreams.
This week the class and I are learning money management including the pros and cons in loans, direct deposit and cashing your check in yourself.
So far it’s been hard to remember the ins and outs with every trick to make it easier on yourself when you’re managing your money but I know if I research enough with some practice I can get it down.
What I learned yesterday is money management and how manage your money. The first thing I learned is overdraft you have to keep track of how much money is in your account and how much you are spending because you do not want to be in debt. The second thing I learned is you have to keep writing your checks in your checkbook so you would know what is in your accounts. The third thing I learned is you better be careful of how you use a credit card because you could get into a lot of debt and not be able to pay it back.
On February 24th Justin came to talk to the class about how to handle your finances.
He also talked about how you should and shouldn't spend your money.
After hearing what he had to say it had me thinking on how I should handle my finances.
Spend it wisely so you'll know how much you have left over for something you might
want later. In my life I save my money by putting away twenty dollar a month.
