Things I'd Tell My Younger Self

By younger, I mean teenage and maybe even early 20s.

1.) You really don't know everything so just stop.

2.) Your Mother is right.

3.) Don't spend your savings on a new car.

4.) Your Grandma's advice "nothing good happens after midnight" is usually correct.

5.) Money doesn't grow on trees. This seems obvious but since I've been working full time and living on my own, I've really come to terms with the value of a dollar.

6.) Credit cards ar bad. Like, really bad. Don't charge what you can't pay off each month!

7.) Look for a coupon or sale before you buy that.

8.) Your parents really do "get it" so stop telling them that they don't. They were once your age, as hard as that is to believe.

9.) Don't chase people who aren't worth it. Stay true to real friends.

10.) Hug more

There are probably some other things I'd tell my younger self but it's probably best left off the blog. 

So, what would you tell your younger self?
