Personal Money Management 101?
So I’m going off to college in the fall and it’s time for me to get a bank account, credit card, build up my credit score, etc. Now, I know that college students are big, juicy, cash cows for the credit card companies, and I’d like to avoid that. Any good books or websites where I can learn the fundamentals of money management. My parents are absolutely no help because they barely speak English, let alone know about credit cards. ><
I’m just so confused as to how to start. Everything seems really complicated (or is that just my fever?)! Please help!
