SPRING BREAK! This joyous time-off from school typically accompanies Easter at most universities and colleges. Through my experience, students either use Spring Break as a time to catch up on their coursework or party (wherever that may be). But being that the national student loan debt grew to $1.2 trillion, how are students partying? (At least, guilt-free)! I don’t want to be a buzz-kill considering many of us are fed up with winter and are dying to give up shoveling for spring weather. With this in mind, there are ways to still enjoy your Spring Break without “breaking” the bank.
Once again we come to the conclusion that life requires money and just to let you know, there is a very low probability that your money problems are going to be fixed via the lottery or a wealthy relative. (Sorry, Mr. Deeds is a fictional movie!) So for the everyday man, what do we do to be smart about our money? Everybody’s circumstances are different. So specific tips won’t work for everyone. But what I have are principles to give you guidance as you try to stay true to your financial New Years resolutions. If you apply these principles to your New Years resolutions, then you will have an opportunity to succeed!
