Financial awareness & financial management - I learned this at Techie Youth today!

Today, I learned how to make smart financial choices. One skill that helps me with this is budgeting. By creating a personal budget based on how much I make and how much I spend on necessities, I am able to (hopefully) stay out of debt. Another helpful skill I learned is minimizing unnecessary spending. There is a difference between wants and needs so if I limit the amount of wants I purchase, I can save more money than usual.
