    I actually kept my money in a box before taking it to Higher One, so I know how it feels to manage it in a box or say, a shoe. I like this video; it’s entertaining and it has some fun humor. It’s also encouraging to know that like-minded people–those who work and try hard, agree on what’s the best way to use your money.

    Very nice video!! I keep my emergency fund out of the bank but its $1100 in $1 Gold coins at home. But I like keeping money out of the bank too because it helps me to save it compared to swiping my card. GREAT JOB!!!!

    Love it! I am having so much trouble saving up for a car right now, it is ridiculous.

    I love this video. The way she breaks the segments down and then explains her difficult situations while telling us how she solved them with humor. I can relate having to buy the generic brand to save money though you really wish you could buy the name brand. . I’m a first year student and i found this to be really helpful, thanks.

    I really like your humor to explain how difficult it is to manage your money without a valid bank account. I was there as an undergraduate, not making much money and holding 3 to 4 jobs a semester! I NEVER learned to manage my money until after I graduated with huge credit card debt. Glad she learned it early on! Thanks a bunch.
