$ave and


$pend You know how every Make A Shopping Log Take a notebook or journal and record how much


you spend and save on everything you buy in each month. Write how much you paid for it, where you got it, and then you’ll know how much you spend in a month. It will help you gage how much you’re spending and how much you’re saving.


Gift Cards When it comes to gift


cards, there’s advantages and there’s disadvantages. You feel like you’re spending fr


e emny, oe


which means that you may have a tendency to spend money on something you may not actually need. Just because you feel like you can. But, on the plus side, gift cards often only allow you to put so much money on them. So, if you’re going to go with gift cards, make sure you only put on as much as you’re willing to spend.


time you go shopping, you end up seeing something that you want to buy? And then (if you have the money) you end up buying it, right? But when you get home, you find out that you have less money to spend, if any. You may have gotten a cute dress, or some to-die-for gladiators, but now you’re stuck in a rut that you don’t want to be in. So here are some ways to stay in check with your wallet this summer.


Get A Job Apply for a job that you know you’ll love. If you’re


into swimming, then become a lifeguard. If you like camp- ing, then apply to work at a summer camp. If you like clothes, then work at a clothing store. Doing something that you like doing will make the pay feel twice as good because you had fun earning it.
