How to save and make money

Your thoughts (6)

Being great with money means you know how to make and save money.

This isn’t something you are born with. It’s a skill.

The good news is it is a skill that can be learnt.

The earlier you learn it, the more you can practice it. The longer you practice it, the better you get at it.

So get started now, here’s how…

Sell it
If you don’t need it anymore, sell it. Books, toys, shoes, clothes, etc. Anything you have and haven’t used in at least a year probably is something you can live without.

Make cash on the side
Use your skill and talent.
It can be baking, sewing or fixing things in your neighbours’ homes.
Ways to make some extra money are everywhere. Look around you for safe ways to earn.

Be careful, people may try to take advantage of a girl looking to earn extra money. Trust your instincts, if an opportunity feels wrong or too good to be true it probably is. Speak to a trusted adult if you feel unsafe

Shop around

Never buy things at the first shop you go to. Compare prices at different places before buying things. Don’t be afraid to price.

Don’t overspend
Making extra money doesn’t mean you have to spend it all. Save some. Any extra money left over from paying important expenses should be saved.

If you are too young to open a bank account use a box or container with a lock to keep your money
