Saving money is hard to do! I should know I had some pretty bad spending habits!! But I had to get my act together I had to too many school things coming up at one time and I had to save money for my senior dues, prom and other activities. So I sat down and wrote out all my needs and wants. I wrote down what everything costed and tried to save as much as I can. It was so hard not to spend that money on stupid things but I had to teach myself discipline. I saved enough for everything I had to do my senior year and now it's time to save for college . My advice is take care of the important things first and don't just blow through your money remember you still have to live.
