Pick a job, earn a paycheck, plan a budget, and save for things you want. The reality of taxes and retirement greet you as you get your paycheck. Then you budget for necessities like food, rent, insurance, gas, and utilities. You also need to budget for fun things, savings, and emergencies. The interactivity makes you work for your money, and for six months of paychecks and a savings goal, you pay the monthly bills, and add to your savings.
