Managing my money for young adults

2 You and your money now

How does your money reach you? Do you get it in cash or does it arrive in some other form? Do you spend time planning what to do with it? Do you stash it somewhere like a savings account or a bank? Or do you go ahead and spend the lot when it arrives? What do you like to spend it on? What do you save up to buy? Do you pay for your own phone? What about your clothes? Do you shop around before you buy, or do you spend on impulse?

The point of this first activity is to make a record of where you and your money are right now. Curb your impulse to look at the feedback before you’ve answered!
