To get the conversation started on money management, have students think back over the time since the last class meeting. Have them note what they did, where they went, and, most importantly, how much money they spent (e.g., $43 at the gas station to go home for the weekend, $3.60 at the coffee shop, etc.). Initiate a discussion about spending habits with your class by prompting the following questions: Did you think of everything you spent money on? Do you keep track of small purchases? How does this relate to developing a budget?
