1. Budgets: Life Has Many Financial Decisions

Playback speed:

Life requires a lot of financial decisions.

In this unit, you used spreadsheets to compare cell phone prices and monthly contracts, categorize and calculate monthly expenses, determine car payments and loan interest amounts, and plan an entire vacation on a budget.

You used calculations, functions, and formulas in Google Sheets to help you balance all of your budgets.

Spreadsheets help you organize all of your income, expenses, and savings.

They also help you make sound financial decisions that work best for you.

Budgeting is a skill you will use for the rest of your life.

If you get in the habit of using spreadsheets to organize your expenses, you can decrease spending on unnecessary items and increase your savings-- maybe even take a vacation like the one you planned!
