We talked about how credit cards work and current interest rates. We also talked about how college students are offered credit cards but should not take them because they have no income to pay the money back. We figured out that it would take many years to pay off the bicycle, so it is better to save and pay in cash.

We learned about different careers in finance and the training you need at the TD Bank presentation.

7. Shop Smart

We worked on filling out the budget worksheet of living expenses and figured out that I would need a job that paid me lot of money to pay these bills.

9. Money Doesn't Always Matter (Friday 12/16/11):

We talked about good things that money can't buy such as taking walks in our neighborhood, free concerts in the park, and speiding time with our family. We then took a walk in our neighborhood and spent time with family.
