It turns out that the best time to learn about managing money is when you are still a kid. We aren’t born as savers or spenders, we learn from examples.

But today there are so many resources out there it is a shame not to take advantage of them. Educational tools are evolving all the time, and a simple reward system isn’t necessarily enough.
