I make sure to spend my money wisely for example I do not just go out the day I get my money and spend it on something pointless just so I can get another thing. I make sure whenever I get money from umpiring I save it to put towards when I am older and can get a car or put it towards my college fund. When I get money from my birthday or holidays I normally let myself spend half of it on thing I need or wait to spend it on a new videogame coming out or if a know i want a pair of shoes that comes out soon and put the other half in my bank accountant and have it for college or a car. Now my allowance I spend on hanging out with my friends or save it for next week when I hang out with my friends. I am a high school student so I don’t have a real job yet just umpiring in my spare time. I always make sure I save enough to get nice gifts my family. My parents don’t really talk to me about money except for telling me to make sure I don’t spend for it all on pointless things and just save some for your future. I somewhat rely on an allowance but I am also independent. I have not started investing yet. We like to buy Xbox games and sports equipment. I have seen many examples in which money has done harm for example many celebrities change once they get famous and have a lot of money. I say money brings the worst and best out in everyone. However I have seen money bring out the best in people like Oprah. I believe that money is good if you know how to use it.
