So you’ve just finished up four tumultuous years of college and chances are you’re broke. If you’re lucky enough to have a family that wants to celebrate your huge accomplishment then you’re going to have a party. Don’t feel guilty about the gifts you receive. Chances are some of your relatives will give you more money that you could have imagined. Be gracious and thank them properly. Your older relatives are recognizing your accomplishments and know that you probably have little to no money left after four years in school and not working. Besides putting the bulk of the money in your savings account, here are a few more ideas for you graduation money:

So we received a few e-mails from readers asking about updates, and yes… it’s been a while since our last post!
We hope all you Class of 2008′ers are enjoying your summer. Finally, School’s out! (unless you’re doing summer school that is). Whether you’re traveling, starting a new job, or just kicking back for a lil bit enjoy your summer before it passes!
With that said, we did run into an interesting article from ZenHabits.net. The article focuses on time management and getting more things done. We thought some readers might find this particularly of interest because coming out of college and post-graduation… things can be a little tricky to prioritize and adapt to a new lifestyle. The article, How to Get a Lot Done – 7 Tips to Achieve More is a great read and we’d highly recommend it!
One particular point struck out the most to us:
3. Work Smart
If you only had a year left to do the things on your lists, would you be satisfied with what you’re spending your time on today?
We believe this may be one of the greatest bits of information any senior coming out from graduation can take in. While in school it’s so easy to prioritize tasks, homework, and responsibilities (be it academic or social). Yet in the ‘real world’ this becomes more difficult when working for “the man.”
Best of luck in the road you choose!
