Being a good steward of money means more than just tithing, but tithing is always a great place to start. I have experienced good financial times and bad financial times. In both, I have been abundantly blessed and I attribute a great deal of that to my trust in God to continue tithing, even when it seemed impossible. My faithfulness returned to me 10 fold and I give God all the glory. God can do more with 10% than you can do with the remaining 90% - take the challenge of Malachi 3:10-12.
Being a good steward of money also means making choices with your money that honor God. God expects us to plan out a budget (Luke 14:28-30), He expects us to give generously (I Timothy 6:17-19) and cheerfully (II Corinthians 9:79), He expects us to save (Proverbs 21:20) and invest (Matthew 25:14-30), He expects us to live a debt-free life (Proverbs 22:7) and repay a debt fully if we acquire one (Romans 13:8) and finally we are to leave an inheritance for our children (Proverbs 13:22).
