During Golden 1 Credit Union’s Mad City Money event on Wednesday, March 14th, 2018, approximately 100 SAVA students learned real life money management skills. Students not only had a lot of fun, but by being engaged and actively participating they learned valuable lessons which will last a lifetime! Below are some favorite responses from the collected surveys: When I have a career and steady income, I will…
…create a savings account and pay myself first.
…manage my money now that I know how to do it.
…continue to save and spend my money wisely by making sacrifices.
…make sure I get what I need instead of what I want.
…not forget to write every transaction down in my register.
…have a spreadsheet and try to plan my expenses ahead of time to be prepared for any bump that may be on the way.
…have a realistic budget and have a savings account for the unpredictable.
…save money for emergencies or future, and make a budget.
…not have a kid until I am 30 years old.
…go to the bank and start a savings account.
…balance my money wisely and not spend it on dumb stuff.
