Tips to be smarter with your money

Tip 1)   Talk to your parents. Ask for tips on how to manage money.

Tip 2)   What do you need to take care of when you turn 18? Geldfit (Moneyfit) and Kwikstart will tell you all about it.

Tip 3)   Make sure you have insight into your finances. Cashbook app Mijn Sofie can help with this. Sign up and use the app and all the tips for free for one year. After that year you can still use the cashbook but you will no longer receive tips.
