  • 3. INCOME •Let’s start by filling in an INCOME CHART • Refer to the list we made last session, but this time include a monthly amount
  • 4. TIPS • If your income is different each month use the least amount of money you can receive…… if you make more, it’s BONUS!

  • 8. TIPS • If you are tracking a bill that is a variable expense use the amount from the month that was the largest amount you have ever paid • Example: Your hydro bill might be $150 in July because you run your air conditioner, but only $90 in September when the windows can be open
  • 9. TIPS • Always OVER estimate when dealing with expenses so you are prepared for a higher bill
  • 10. EXPENSES • Review your chart & make sure you haven’t missed a single expense • Coffee? • Cigarettes? • Gambling? • Alcohol? • Fast food?
