TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR FINANCE$While it's hard to resist spending money on things you would like to have, running up a large amount on your credit cards will cause more pain in the end. On average, 60% of students have a credit card in their name, and 20% own four or more credit cards, making it easy to overspend. But if you can be a smart shopper, you won't have to worry about having a large debt on yourhands.
DON'T BE A SUCKER-AVIOD THE CREDIT TRAP AND CREDIT CARD FRAUD!!!
Try to use credit only for emergencies or when you know you have money available. Charge no more than you can pay off in a month or two, and limit yourself to one credit card that can be used anywhere. When traveling, don't walk around with too many cards or too much money at one time. Don't leave your Social Security card, ATM and PIN numbers in your wallet. If important information is stolen, report it immediately!
