2 Personal Financial Statements Money ManagementDay-to-day financial activities associated with using limited income to satisfy your unlimited needs and wantsAsk students to think of things they have to pay for now on their own?Now ask students to think of things they will have to pay for after they graduate from high school or college and are not living with parents.Ask students if anyone actually tracks what they spend.
3 Wise Money Manager Planning for saving and spending Set goals Use the 5 S’sLive within your incomeGo through the characteristics of a wise money manager:Always PAY YOURSELF FIRST – Save!!!!!Plan your spending and savings – write it out or put it in a computer fileSet financial goals so you can plan your spending and saving to achieve it – (give examples)When you are shopping (especially for bigger ticket items) go through the 5’s (ask students to recite and recall what the five s’s are: Specify, Search, Sift, Select, Study)Do not spend more than you make – or you will be in debt
4 Personal Balance Sheet Record of assets and liabilities for a point in timeAssetsThings that you ownMoney, furniture, cars, etc.LiabilitiesThings that you oweCredit card balances, car loan, etc.You may want to create a personal balance sheet so you can see what items of value you have and what you owe. If you look at page 399 you can see an example of a personal balance sheet.Assets are the things that you own (things of value) and Liabilities are the things that you owe (debt/bills)
5 Net Worth ASSETS – LIABILITIES Only a net worth if your assets are more than your liabilitiesYour value of what you own is more than what you owe.To determine your net worth you take your assets minus your liabilities – You want your assets to be more than your liabilities…if not, you might have a problem.
6 Cash FlowStatementReports net wages and other income along with spending for a period of timeCash inflows – money available to spend from incomeCash outflows – money you spend for living expenses and suchYou may also want to create a cash flow statement to see where your money is going this will show your total wages and all your expenses.Look at page 401 for an exampleWhat are common inflows (income, interest)What are common outflows? (food, clothing, transportation, other living expenses)In groups of 4 to 5 have students do the Work as a Group on page 400 (one paper per group) – Give 10 minutes –Have students share their ideas with whole groupWhen finished have students answer #3 page 401 (remind students that Assets – Liabilities = Net worth)Pass out the spending diary – students will record spending for one week and fill in the worksheet
7 Personal Financial Statements BudgetA plan for dividing up your income among spending and savingHave students tell you some of their goals. Go thru the list and ask how long it would take to achieve each of the goals.Many of us have had frustration of setting a goal, but not achieving it. Often the failure is due to having a long term goal, but no short term steps to get there.Use the example of prom (in April want to save $100 on dress/ lose 10 lbs.)We can set financial goals just like other goals in our lives. It is easier to achieve financial goals when we have a budget set to achieve the goals.
8 Budgeting Activities Live within your income Achieve your financial goalsBuy wiselyAvoid credit problemsPlan for financial emergenciesDevelop good financial management skillsLiving within your income means you do not spend more than you make…once you have financial goals (such as buying a car) then you can begin a budget to help you achieve your goal; buy wisely…use the 5 S’s; avoiding credit problems again means living within your income. If you use credit (credit cards, loans, etc) make sure you can pay them back. Credit cards should be paid in full every month. Everyone should have money saved for an emergency – for example your heater goes out in the middle of winter and you need a new one; if you have an emergency savings, then it is no big deal; if you do not then you may have a problem; Also what if you lose your job…if you do not have some emergency savings it may be difficult to pay the bills during the time you have no income;To develop good financial management skills, learn how to budget and stick with it. Know what triggers you to spend money and avoid those situations; Always know your balances in your bank accounts and credit accounts; check your credit once a year; Try not to be an impulsive buyer.

16 Successful Budgets Realistic Flexible Evaluated regularly Well planned and clearly communicatedSimple formatBudgets should reflect current income and planned spendingWhen unexpected expenses arise, your spending plan should be able to adapt for these living costs.Every few months evaluate the budget to determine whether it is still appropriate – for example since gas prices have gone up you may need to adjust more expense for transportation and take it from another category…All family members should discuss financial goals, wants and needs and plans for spending – if you want to go to college and so does your little brother, mom and dad will need to talk with everyone in the family to help each of you reach these goalsIf the budget is too detailed and difficult to understand, family members may not be willing to use the spending plan.
