As a teen, you don't have as many responsibilities as the adults in your life, meaning less bills to pay. This can make it a lot easier to save your money, or contribute to the household as you and your parents see fit. Starting out now is the best way to build yourself a strong foundation for your future.
Summer in Arizona can be extremely hot - but there are a number of ways to stay cool. You can wait until the sun sets to go outside, eat cold foods like ice cream, or sit next to a fan. Our little ocelot and mountain lion friends have a favorite way to stave off the heat- swimming in the pool!
As a teen, you have more purchasing power than you did as a child. You're getting an allowance or working at a job.

Whether you're saving up for a video game, a car, or college, learning how to manage your finances is an important skill.
