Top 5 Ways To Save

Do you find you spend your money faster than you can save it? Kidzworld gives you some tips in the Top 5 Ways To Save!


Does your money always burn a hole in your pocket? Here’s a few ways to avoid splurging on unnecessary stuff and save for that big purchase.


#5: Make Smart Purchases

It’s hard not to blow your money as soon as you get it, but think first before you buy something. Is it worth the money? Will you still be interested after a week? Try to avoid trendy clothing or electronics you’ll tire of quickly. Invest in quality stuff!


#4: Always Save 10 Percent

If you save just a small portion of your allowance, birthday money or pay cheque, that money can grow fast. Imagine if you saved 5 dollars every month. At the end of the year you’d have $60!


#3: Keep A Purchases Diary

You’ve probably heard similar advice about nutrition. It’s good to keep track of what goes into your body—and it’s just as important to pay attention to what goes out of your wallet! Seeing all your purchases written down will help you figure out where all your money is going and if you’re buying stuff you don’t need.


#2: Start A Penny Jar

You’d be surprised how much you can save just by throwing your pennies in a jar. One cent might not seem like much, but if you manage to collect a hundred, that’s a dollar right there.


#1: Open A Bank Account

Did you know you can make money just by putting it in the bank? That’s called interest. Most local banks give you around 2 percent interest, but internet banks give better rates, so shop around. It’ll be worth it!

Maybe they're trying a little too hard to impress you. Maybe they're desperate for a friend and don't want to lose you so they're trying to please you. Just calmly ask them if they could stop trying to be exactly like you and instead be themselves, because people like to be friends who are themselves. Good luck! -HannahG

Hey, just move on. If she/he can't see what a great person you are, then they don't deserve you. You're an amazing person and if they believe differently, then they don't have a clue about what they're missing. -HannahG

Look, I know that it's bad what she did. It's wrong. But there's nothing you can do about that. Let her live her own life, the best thing to do is just leave it alone. If she wants to take care of a child, she'll deal with the consequences. She makes her own decisions, so if that's what she wants then you shouldn't interfere with it. Forget her. Just don't make the same mistake. I know some girls out there believe that their boyfriend totally loves them, and if they have ########### they'll love their girl even more. That's not always the truth. They always say it's not gonna be me, I'm not gonna make the same mistake, my boyfriend loves me no matter what, and they turn out wrong. That's the end of my rant. Just leave her alone, you'll be better off. -HannahG
