Isabella on a Teacher's Budget
At the budgeting workshop [provided by The Service Collaborative of WNY Opportunity Corps], I was a middle school teacher and I made $3,500 a month. The challenges of staying on budget was gas and things like food and clothes. I needed to watch extra expenses like heat and more closely.
This exercise compares to how I manage my paycheck [in real life] because I want to just save it for when I get older, but it's hard to not buy things I see in stores sometimes. I have no bills now so I just try not to spend a lot of money except when i'ts for necessities or something I really want.
