Ten new ways to save money

We all spend money every day. Of course, it’s true that God gives some more financial resources than others, but we are all called to be found faithful with as little or as much as He has entrusted to us at this time.

How do parents enthusiastically prepare their children for college and their first taste of independence, while also warning them about the pitfalls that can lead to financial disaster? Students who get an early handle on their income and spending can avoid the stress of being unable to pay off bills and having to work more and more hours to meet financial obligations.
