Youth & Money?

As a young adult, one of the biggest challenges I face is learning how to be responsible with money. I don’t know how to do this, I’ve never had my own money before or things to pay for. As a kid, if you wanted to do something it would go one of both ways, either your parents would give you money to go to what you wanted or it was time to get creative and have fun for four hours with whatever you had in your garage. So here’s the dilemma now, I’m still young and want to do things but my parents no longer give me money for that (which isn’t expected), but having ”garage fun” isn’t really a thing at my age or even that much of a thing for kids in 2017. Everyone at my age is always wanting to go out and do things, whereas most things cost money now. Now we face a decision of whether or not we want to use the money to enjoy being young or try to save it in hopes of eventually making more money for our futures. Like everything else in life, the solution is to have the right balance of both. I guess balancing your money is easier said than done but one step I am going to take in attempts to have a better balance is finding out what I want to support with my money, and only spend my money on products and other things that I support. That’s how I plan on saving a little bit more money, how do you save your money? Do you have any fun activities that don’t cost any money?
