Really Specific Money Tips: What Are the Top Money Tips for College Students?


[Music plays.] Darnell Jones : My name is
Darnell Jones. I’m a premier financial health banker with Wells Fargo bank. Now that you’re on your own, you really want to watch your spending. You want to watch your money in and your money out. You are going to take control over your spending. [Music plays.] Darnell Jones: As a college
student, the smartest money tip I can recommend to you is to track your spending. Know where your money’s going. Not always the big purchases you make, but the little purchases are the ones that add up. Things like buying lunch every day off of campus instead of eating what’s there. And also making sure that you’re
not doing those little things that each of us do. It’s called your latte
factor. [Music plays.] Being a Wells Fargo customer, you have a lot of benefits with our digital tools. One of them is
My Money Map. One of the benefits for My Money Map is you are able to track your money in, money out. So, the
things that are going out, your day-to-day purchases, and the money you have coming in each week, or biweekly, when you get paid. And then that allows you to be able to come up with a budget or a spending plan. [Music plays.] A spending plan is not set in stone. As we grow, our needs change. And as our needs change, we do need to revisit our budget. You want to still continue to put away money for savings, and prioritize. [Music plays] Voice Over:
