What do I need to open a
bank account?

  1. If you're under 18, you'll need a guardian

  2. Your social security number/card

  3. Your picture identification, such as a driver’s license, Student ID, or passport

  4. Personal information such as address, phone number, email address

  5. An initial deposit (cash, checks) as required by the bank

Decide exactly what you want to do and when.

Use action words.

Set a deadline.

I want to save $500 for driving school this summer



How will you measure success along the way?

How will you know you've achieved the goal?

I will save $50 from every check during winter break.



Is this something you can achieve with all of your resources? Is this within your control?

I can do this if I use my monthly gift card instead of cash.



Is this goal related to your overall mission. Is this something you really need or desire?

If I get my license, when I'm ready I can save for a car.



Create a timeline of when you will achieve the goal. A goal without a plan is just a dream.

This is enough time  so I won't be stressed.
