"-$20,000. When you turn 18 you have to go into high debt that is unavoidable to get a watered down diploma. On a more serious note on the high end save 20% of your paycheck and low end save 10%. Make sure to shop around banks to find which has the…"

"That's awesome. I wish I would have done that, you have more money right now than I do. Granted, I have 2 kids and a family to pay for on one income, but either way, that's an awesome head start you'll have!"

"I always had none, because until about 2 years ago(I'm 29 now) I was TERRIBLE with money, now I'm struggling to catch up, though i Have some in the bank now and minimal debt. So since we're not that separated, TRUST ME, START NOW!!!…"

"Rebekah's comment got me thinking. What is the point of the money in the bank.  Is it a resource to be applied for college or spending money for having fun? What are the goals of the 18 year old long and short term?"

"$112,000 liquid, plus another $125,000 in near-liquid securities. That's $112,000 for the first two years of college; $112,000 for the next two; $13,000 for the first few months after college while he looks for a job. In reality, when I help my…"

"If you're asking the question at age 18, you either have very little, if any cash in the bank or are already sitting on a nice pile of cash. I'd say if it's the former, I'd think accumulating least $500 to $1,000 in the bank as…"

"Hmmm.  You're right.  Of course totally wiping out your several thousand dollars worth of carbon-fiber or steel fixie wonder bike pretty much guarantees "replace" will win the repair or replace debate."

"Guess it depends on where you live.  Even at 18, I wouldn't want to be caught without a car in Texas.  I commuted 30 mi. to college, though.  If the car goes down around here, you need enough liquidity to get it back up and…"
