When I was in middle school I learned how to use a calculator to save money. A simple formula helps me to work out how to skimp and scrape every penny and the benefits are plentiful. The skill involves basic arithmetic and the ability to budget and manage your finances. It is an absolute vital skill that everyone needs to learn at some point in life.
I had the class when I was about 13 years old and the teacher showed us some great tricks of the trade. When she first presented it to us, I was completely bamboozled and confused. However, within a few days it all started to fall into place and make sense to me.
Our teacher was a middle-aged lady with a warm smile and calm manner. She was the most inspiring teacher I have ever had and was a real salt of the earth character. I remember how patient she was and how her eyes would light up when she spoke of money!
Even though I learned this skill when I was a pimply-faced teen, to this day I have still made use of the formulas. When I started living on my own, finance became more important as I had bills to pay. I draw on these skills on a weekly basis and they have been a Godsend.
