Who do you trust to help you make money decisions?
My mother. She’s a bargain shopper, and she knows a lot about how to spend money and save money.

What’s one of the best tactics she has taught you about saving money?
If it’s too expensive, come back and wait till it gets on sale.

What is your plan now?
I just graduated high school. I’m going to the Air Force—I’m all signed up.
