Being Good with Money

Screenshot 2017-02-28 at 12.44.55 PM.pngToday Anina from the ASB Getwise Programme came in to talk to us about saving money. She taught us that no matter what your job is you can save it just might take a little longer. It was actually really fun because we played a game where we were in teams of four and we were given $2000 to fund and support a trip to Fiji. We all had to think about flight prices, accommodation, insurance and activities. Our group payed $200 for the economy class flights, $500 for accommodation, $300 dollars for insurance. All of the other groups just payed for the cheapest items but our group played in the long run. At the end of the game our group was tied for first with group 3. I learnt that even if you don't have the highest paying job you can still earn money and as long as you save it and spend it wisely then you will be able to get whatever you want in the future. If there was anyone that I would need to give advice to it would be my older brother because he spends a money which he wanted to save.
