Learning how to budget isn't easy. First, how much money do you have available, and what is its relative value? What are projected expenses, and how do you keep track of them? And how can you avoid unnecessary purchases? Author Judi Kinney tackles all of these issues and more in this practical, easy-to-teach curriculum.

Daily Budget, Weekly Budget, Monthly Budget, Loans and Investments, and Putting It All Together. Math exercises are linked to real-life characters' everyday experiences.

Each lesson includes an objective, background, and step-by-step teaching procedure.
