Youth Summer Savings Plan
Winter break is already over so it's time to start planning for your summer vacation. Whether you want to buy a new bike, try out a cool camp, or take swim lessons, if you start right now, you'll have plenty of time to reach your summer savings goal.
- Start with your holiday cash. Did you get any money as a gift? Or gift cards you won't use but can sell? This should be your first deposit on your way to success.
- Ask around for small jobs where you can earn money while in school. Be a Mother's helper after school or on weekends helping busy moms take care of their children. Collect aluminum cans and earn cash at recycling centers. Have a yard sale of your old toys and clothes.
- Got a birthday between now and summer vacation? Skip the new earrings or iTunes card and ask for cash!
- Get an allowance? Buckle down and spend less at the vending machines or mall so you can out more money toward your summer goal.
Just a few small tweaks to your spending and saving routine and before you know you'll be celebrating your achievement.
