You just got a surprise gift $100! What will you do with it? (off to side) 1. Spend it right away for something I want—“A shirt in that new shade of blue will look great on me!” 2. Spend it right away for something I need— “My running shoes are falling apart. Now I can get a new pair to break in before track season starts!” 3. Use it to get more money out of Mom or Dad—“That MP3 player I’ve been wanting is $200. I wonder if Mom or Dad will give me the extra $100?” 4. Spend some/save some—“College is in my future, so I want to be sure to have some money to get me started. But it also is important to have a little fun, like taking in a movie and having dinner with my friend.” 5. Help someone out— “Our rent went up $50 a month. Mom doesn’t know how she’s going to pay for it. This money could help her out for a couple of months.” 6. Save it all— “A penny saved is a penny earned. If I put this into my bank account it will earn interest and I’ll have money when I really need it. My car insurance is due in a few weeks.”

Vanessa’s Budget Vanessa's monthly student worker paycheck earnings after taxes is $412. She also has a part-time waitress job on the weekends and earns $168 per month after taxes. Her parents supplement her earnings with $200 a month. She adds that to her monthly paycheck earnings to get a total monthly income of $780. Next, Vanessa adds up her fixed expenses: rent (she shares an apartment with two others and pays 1/3 of the rent) $200, and she is responsible for her car insurance which is $128 per month. She has a car that her parents have given her, so she does not have a car loan. She is very lucky that her parents pay her tuition and fees for school each semester. She is also on her parent’s health insurance and that takes care of any doctor visits when she gets sick as well as visits to the dentist.
Now Vanessa adds up her variable expenses. Her share of utilities is usually $100 per month and that includes cable. She spends about $40 per month on her cell phone calls. Groceries average around $80 per month, Gasoline is another $40 per month. And she figures she’ll be able to spend $40 per month on clothing, movies and going out with her friends. She adds all these up and sees that her variable expenses total $300 per month. Vanessa subtracts her total expenses of $628 from her income of $780 to get $152. Vanessa knows that she will need probably about $20 per week for snacks, incidental school supplies, etc. That leaves $72. Since Vanessa will have some money left over after taking care of her expenses, she decides to put at least $60 per month into savings for unexpected expenses, e.g., repairs to car, additional materials required for class, etc.
Is Vanessa’s spending within the budget guidelines? http://www.selu.edu/acad_resea rch/programs/cse/finance/budget /

Budgeting Tips 1. Create and Update your budget Create a plan on how you will spend and save money. Update it regularly and evaluate your goals. Think about your financial situation, where you need to be, and determine how you're going to get there. 2. Rule of Percentages — A good rule of thumb for budgeting your salary is: 70% pay current bills, 20% save for future purchases, 10% invest for long term. 3. Plan ahead - Write down your goals and objectives. It's important to be realistic. Right now when you are in school, will you more likely be able to afford a $10,000 car or one that costs $30,000? Review your goals and objectives regularly to see if you are on track.
4. Pay Yourself First — After budgeting for necessities and before spending anything for wants, always tuck away some money from each paycheck for emergencies into a rainy day savings account or investments -- Rule of 72 (to double your money) — If you know the interest rate you can get, divide 72 by the known interest rate and it will give you how many years it will take to double your money. If you know how many years you have, divide 72 by the number of years and it will tell you what interest rate you must have to double your money. Examples: If interest rate is 6%. 72 ÷ 6 = 12 years. If time is 10 years. 72 ÷ 10 = 7.2% interest rate needed.
5. Fixed, Variable, or Needs, Wants, and Luxury? – Categorize and prioritize the expenses in your budget. Is it fixed, such as rent or a car payment? Is it variable such as groceries, gas or long distance use? Or is it luxury, such as entertainment or going out to eat? 6. Stay insured Purchase health insurance to avoid being hard hit by a financial loss due to accident or illness. It is an important part of your financial plan. Depending on your circumstances, look into renter’s insurance, car insurance, home owner’s insurance, or flood insurance. 7. Before Charging — Ask yourself: 1) Do I really need it? And 2) Will I still have this 5 years from now? If the answers are No, then wait until you can pay cash.
8. Stay focused You'll need patience and discipline to start your financial plan and to follow it through. Don't be tempted to overspend or to spend without thinking about it first.. 9. Money Tracking — We often spend money without thinking about it. Keep track of all your expenditures (cash, checks, debit cards, ATM withdrawals and credit cards, transactions - even the smallest ones). Record them every time in a notebook or register. Review them regularly to make yourself aware of where your money goes. Keep a file box /notebook to put all of your records in.
10. Educate yourself - No one can protect you from your own bad judgment. Get the information you need to avoid financial trouble and make thoughtful decisions that can improve your financial security. 11. Take money time - Set aside time each month to work on your money management. Monthly reconcile your bank statement. You will find that it's time well spent.
12. Set Financial Goals Goal setting is an important part of success, whether you are aspiring to reach objectives in school, career, or your personal life. Aim too high and you may get frustrated and give up; aim too low and you might not push yourself to reach your full potential. Think about your financial goals and how you plan to reach them. – What do you want your financial picture to look like in one year? Five years? Ten years? – Do you want to buy a car, buy a house, start a family, or pay off student loans? – What do you need to change to reach your goals? – Think about your financial goals and how you plan to reach them.

STATE #7 GROUPS Smith Family Budget Barbara Smith was tired. She had no idea that merging wants, needs and desires in marriage would be such a challenge. She and her husband had overcome many challenges, but their greatest ongoing problems surrounded money. Her spouse was a spender, she was a saver; she liked to balance the checkbook to the last penny, her husband hadn’t entered anything in the register in years. The result was numerous volatile eruptions and conflict that both she and her spouse wanted to avoid. It shouldn’t have been a surprise. Experts agree that finances can be the number one cause of marital strain. It’s understandable that financial struggles can cause strain because how people spend money is never
