It’s Saturday night and you can do literally whatever you want. What would you do? Sit at home on your couch and channel surf? Play video games with your best friend—and win? Go shopping and pig out at the food court? Fly to Hawaii and back?

Guess what? All those things cost money.

Even the things you think are free…aren’t.

Shmoop’s guide to Financial Responsibility will help you get all your ducks—and bucks—in a row.

Since 2008, Shmoop has been a digital publishing company with a point of view. Our teaching method revolves around the basic idea that learning is often too hard—so we carry gallons of academic WD-40 to squirt on the tracks whenever we can.

We own 100% of our content and present both a consistent voice and a distinctive product offering. Our Learning Guides, Online Courses, College Readiness Prep, and Test Prep balance a teen-friendly, approachable style with academically rigorous materials to help students understand why they should care.
