Whether it's your first time getting money or you've had income for a while, it's important to know how to manage what comes in and what goes out. This is so that you can make sure you have enough for the essentials, like food and bills, as well as the things you want, like treats and days out.
If you're lost or unsure about how to manage your money, please talk to someone you trust, like a family member, friend or tutor. Most colleges and universities have advisers who can help you to work otu what to do next.
