    On my 16th birthday I was given some money from my man to put towards a car, within 2 months I’d managed to spend the entirety of it and now I feel like the worst person. How am I meant to save money for later on in life when I always spend it

    Put it in a deposit account without instant access or give it to someone you trust to put it into an account for you and make it so it requires 2 signatures to withdraw money. If its away from temptation then you will be able to save.

    Stop making excuses for yourself, get a grip and realise you are completely in control of how and when you spend your money.

    You can save money, you choose not to.
