Make Money Choices: A financial reality check

After high school, you will need to work to pay living expenses, like housing, transportation, and clothing. Use Make Money Choices to get the financial information you need to help you make important decisions such as:

  • What kind of occupation will support the lifestyle I plan to live?
  • What kind of education do I need or want?
  • What major should I choose?
  • Where do I want to go to college?

Use the Make Money Choices [PDF] workbook to guide you through the steps to build a budget that supports the lifestyle you plan to achieve as an adult.
