When you have an immediate family member in an economic field, you are bound to talk about money. In my case, I cannot visit my grandfather without my economic future coming up. Though I may complain, I always try to take his advice to heart, even when he forgets my age and experience in the workforce. However, there has always been one piece of advice that I will stand by until I am his age and instructing my grandchildren the same thing. The tip came up while I was driving home from my tedious job as a lifeguard at a somewhat sketchy waterpark. I had just received my first paycheck of the season which was more than I had expected so naturally, I needed to get my grandfather on the line for some advice. After reading him the amount on my paycheck, he surprised me with a minimal number. I immediately questioned what he meant by it, as I had received far more than what he noted. Since then I have always followed his rule when receiving any sum of money. Ten percent of the money would stay in my spending account for "want" money. This includes anything that I simply desire because I am still a child and the newest book or technology device still intrigues me. The next thirty percent would be for things I "need". Typically, this money goes towards the ever-increasing gas prices or school supplies. That leaves me with sixty percent to "save", and use at another time in the future when I direly need it. Thanks to this system, I have been able to get the best out my of hard-earned money and still invest some for the future. While I may not always abide by this system, it is always there for me.
