Money-Managing

So, I've been looking for scholarships and jobs so when I'm in college I'm not too broke and can pay for basic needs but I'm worried it will not be enough and I'll just end up in debt. How can I make sure that this doesn't end up happening? I know I probably shouldn't be too concerned, and my parents said that they would help some but I don't want to become too dependent on them if that makes sense.

Hey there! I am the same way! I recommend putting 10% into a savings account every time you get paid at your workplace. No matter how much your pay is currently over time it will add up! As it sits in a savings account it could possibly acquire some interest that may help boost your savings a little bit. Hope this helps a bit!
