1) Follow 50/30/20 Rule
If you have a summer job, put away some of your money in your savings account, some of it towards spending money, and the other towards necessities. I recommend using the 50/30/20 rule.
This helps to split your money and know how much money is going into each account and how much money you should be spending.
2) Record Your Money Spending
This is super important! Each month record all your spending and add it up.
This helps you know how much money you are exactly spending each month and helps you stick to a budget.
3) Only Take Out a Certain Amount of Money Per Month
Stick to a budget, like I am only going to spend $200 per month.
It also helps to only use cash so, you know you will not going over budget.
4) Skip the Car Wash
Do it yourself.
Way cheaper and saves you $50-100.
5) Sell Used Clothes, Furniture, etc.

If you have a job, pack your lunch!

7) Spend Smart
Spend money on things you only really need.
Yes, it is okay to splurge on yourself every once in while.
