Creating a personal budget

In this new video, Don Betterton, financial aid expert and SimpleTuition advisor addresses the importance of having a personal budget. As a college student, it’s very easy to be excited by your new environment and lose track of your personal spending. In fact, overspending is the most common mistake made by college students, especially freshmen. If you can learn to keep your discretionary spending under control and budget yourself throughout the semester, you’ll save money and avoid dangerously low bank account balances.
