My Personal Budget

I introduced this project thusly. “Don’t like living with your parent’s rule? Then quit complaining, get a job, move out, and pay for your own upkeep!” This  project directs students to gain employment, find housing, arrange for transportation, make a budget, and then examine the cost of living on various incomes. “Do you think it is so easy to live on your own?” Students don’t fail to realize the difficulty of paying for one’s upkeep on minimum wage when it is all explained so clearly on an Excel spreadsheet.
