Q: How should I balance my snack shop spendings?

--- Biga tri

Hey Biga Tri!

Now that’s a good dilemma. Whether it be when you’re young or old, balancing your spending can be difficult. That is why I suggest you create a budget. For snack shop you could create a system where each week or per day you set a limit to only spend a certain amount.

For example, in your phone you could create a reminder that says “spending limit for this week = $20” that way, whenever you make a purchase, you can log it and as the week goes on you can see what you’ve spent and how much you have left. This can also be a good way to demonstrate responsibility to your parents. If you can prove to them that you’re good with money then maybe they will raise your budget. Learning budgeting skills like this now is important because you can turn them into habits and be skilled in budgeting as an adult.
