Money Smart Kid Focuses On Saving

Bondurant-Farrar High School graduate Quinn Hanson-Pollock is a busy guy. And he's money-smart too.
Michael Lindman used to spend money freely. "I was a union truck driver for 35 years and had a good income," says the 56-year-old Lindman. "I saved a little, but spent most of it on the house, nice cars, and other stuff. You always think there's going to be that much coming in, but things can change in a split second."
Quintin Smith wants to buy a house. He says having this goal has made him a saver.

Goal leads to successful saving

Ciera Bolden is a twenty-something, but she's already learned that having money in savings makes her life less stressful. "It gives me stability to know that I have savings to fall back on if I need it," she says. "Plus I want to be an independent adult and the way to do that is to have money set aside so when you need it, you don't have to rely on someone else for help."

Savings gives stress relief
