Budget Worksheet 1
I. EXPENSES: Congratulations! You are now out on your own. You now have to take care of your
own finances. The first step, which we will do today, is to determine your spending habits.
In the first column, write down the items you buy during the course of one month. Include fees for
services such as phone and internet. Include these even if in reality your parents pay for them.
In the second column, write down how many times you buy these things. In the third column,
write down the prices. The fourth column is for the subtotals for each of these items.
Then at the bottom total your expenses for the month. Remember, this is for you on your own, so
include all the things that your parents normally would buy for you.
