Now is the time to start planning your finances for NEXT school year - especially if it will be your first year away at college/university. Where is my money going to come from? How much will I need? How do I get the maximum benefit out of every dollar I plan on spending?
There are a lot of things to think about. The more time you take to do some research - find extra sources of income (scholarships/grants) - and prepare yourself, the easier the transition will be to life on your own.
There are lots of resources available on the internet to help you manage your finances. There are budgetting tools galore and general information by the website-full.
Take the time NOW to start managing your money in preparation for next year. You'll be glad you did once you take those first steps out into the Real World!
