In class, we played a game that involved spending money on resources if you were trapped on an island. Many people in the classroom bought many useless items that would not help them on an island. Many people completely looked over “water” and continued to buy other items. This made me realize that this is exactly how a lot of college students spend their money in college. Many students spend their money on fast food and restaurants rather than the items that they really need. As the woman from the Money Management area was giving us advice, she helped me realize there are better ways to manage my money and I learned just how important it is to save money.
