Tip of the week

Get a money calendar. Any calendar with big windows with room to write in amounts will do. Use the calendar windows to note:

  • Due Dates for scholarship and grant applications. Keep applying for financial aid all the way through college. Missing an application deadline is the most common mistake students make when applying for scholarships.
  • Upcoming school expenses (books and tuitions).
  • Bill payment dates.
  • Upcoming activities where you'll need cash. (Movies, dances, parties, etc.)
