What advice could you give me on getting on the right track to saving and being successful?
I am 23 years old. Lived on my own since I was 18, Havent gone to school yet. I have very little money saved because I started to pay off my debt, from when I messed up when i was 18. I am going next week to enroll in school to start at the end of the month, to be a Floral Designer, which I dreamed of when I was young but forgot about it till I got a knock in the head. So I want to save money and pay off my debt and get my credit better. I am on the way to doing all of this, but what do you suggest? I dont go out and blow my money, only on food and gas and an occasional peice of clothing, which i never pay much for. I dont go to bars and stuff. So what do you suggest? I just want to be happy with what I do
