Developing your (school) budget

This simple exercise will help you
balance your educational budget

First enter your income from your
job, scholarships/grants, savings, family and "other"

Then enter your expenses from
rent/utilities, tuition/books, food, entertainment, and "other"

The third screen will show you the two columns,
and you will then be able to balance the two
by adjusting the individual entries.

Good luck!
