Honestly, I am HORRID when it comes to money and saving it and I need help, ideas and tips! Lots of them!!! I a jobless, penny-less, college student who gets $89 a month from the state. I'm living in adult foster care presently (long story) but moving back to my parents at the end of the semester. I'm not disabled anymore, the state is pushing me to apply for social security but I won't lie and say I'm disabled when I'm not. I don't like the idea of moving back with my parents but I can't afford my own place. I plan to get a job over the summer and save what money I earn and that's where I need help because I know if I stay the way I am now, I'll blow it.
I go to community college so there isn't any student housing to rely on. How do you guys budget and discipline yourselves? I spend all my money on food and art supplies. I need to get my act together because I can't live like this. I refuse to get a credit card because I don't trust myself with money. I need to grow up...but how do I do this?
