Jimmy Jumper Making Good Money ChoicesMaking Choices

When you spend money you are making a choice. Sometimes these are good choices, sometimes these are bad choices.

There are some simple questions you can ask yourself when thinking about buying something to decide whether it is a good or bad choice:

  • Do I need this?

  • Can I borrow it off someone?

  • Can I get it cheaper somewhere else?

Imagine this - you spend ALL your money on lollies on the way home from school on Wednesday. In the weekend your friends want to go to the movies, but you have spent all your money!

Was spending all your money on lollies a good choice? Why not?
