    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Saving Tips and Tricks

Working full time? Doing internships throughout the summer and looking for ways to put money aside for the upcoming year? Summer can be a rough time for everyone when it comes to saving money. You feel like you have so much of it (afterall, this is the time you make as much as possible), but that money is supposed to be used for making it through the winter and school year. So how do you prevent yourself from spending it and save it efficiently? Here are some tips:

  •  Set some aside.

               If you make tips, take ten to fifteen dollars for your own spending, and deposit the rest in the bank. You will be surprised how quickly this small amount of money will still accrue for your own spending!

  • Make different accounts to save.

          Sometimes having specific accounts for bills, school, and personal spending during the summer can promote better saving habits…and prioritize your earnings.

  • Create a budget and stick to it.

          Set out specific amounts that you are allowed to spend during a week’s time and don’t go over them. This will ensure that your funds stay stable and manageable.

  • Save that change.

           Create a special container, jar, or bag to throw spare change that you make from tips or that accumulates in your purse or wallet. Save it up and cash it at the end of the summer. You will be surprised at how much you have!
