- It depends on your situation and your age. For me I've always been an entrepreneur so I find ways to make and save money. When I was younger and could't actually get a real job so I did side jobs. Cutting grass, baby sitting, selling my handmade jewelry, and yes even the lemonade stand were all things I did to make money. Now I have 2 yrs of HS to finish and there's only a few real jobs I can do this summer because I happen to be advanced in school and am still under the age requirement. But there are a bunch of online jobs that teens can find. I would definitely recommend working the summer before you go to college though in order to have some money to get started with. But like I said at first, there is no straightforward answer because it totally depends on you and what type of situation your in.

This helps me learn more. What other steps should I take to learn more about saving money? Also how offend do you think we should use credit cards over debit cards?(1 vote)
- You know, the first thing I would say is, just really, think about money. It's amazing how many people just assume that, you know, things magically happen, that the food magically shows up on the table, or that, you know, there's magically a roof over their head. Money is what drives all of these things. And so, talk to your parents, you know, when they go grocery shopping, think about the prices. You know, this was a, when I was a kid, I used to love The Price Is Right, and it kind of made me obsessed with prices, and I used to look at coupon books and all of that. I actually used to collect coupons and come with my mom and encourage her to buy the things that we had coupons for. But I learned a ton doing that, I learned a ton. You know, and I was kind of lucky, my mom was on the frugal side. We used to reuse paper towels. (laughing) But it was a great lesson, 'cause she used to tell me how expensive these paper towels were, and I appreciated that. And that, you know, when we went to the store, I would look at, well, okay, this costs this much per pound, this costs that much per pound. Wow, we get a better deal if we buy the larger one, but we gotta make sure that it's not so large that we're gonna waste it, because then we're wasting money. So when you go shopping with your parents, think carefully about what they're buying. Talk very openly to your parents about money, about are they stressed about money, what are tips that they have?
