Building Skills

Whether you're educating yourself or your kids, school years are busy ones. But it's never too early, or too late, to learn good money skills. Younger kids can play along with our Scholastic digital savings games and college students can learn how to live on a budget and finance education. Check out all our resources to make the most of this time.

Have a Plan

Take the time to write down a plan to save money for future expenditures such as paying down college debt, buying a first car, paying tuition and if you can, giving to charity. Since this is a time of great change, update your plan at least once a year.

Stick to a Budget

As you start to manage your own budget, consider the differences between wants and needs. Use a debit card rather than cash so it’s easy to track your spending. Once a month, look back at where your money went and see if you need to make adjustments.

Manage Your Debt

Start building your credit history with good habits. Make your payments on time. Use overdraft protection. As much as possible, make sure you pay more than the minimum payment. Stay on top of your finances through online banking and mobile alerts.
