Step 4 - One-Time Expenses
Shop, Shop, Shop...'Til You Drop!
You need to furnish your house and use your $2,000 graduation gift to pay your one-time expenses. When you complete your shopping, fill in the total amounts that will be taken out of your $2,000 graduation gift on the first page of the Step 4 packet. Add all the amounts and make sure that you did not go over your $2,000 budget. If you overspent, go back and make adjustments where needed. You may have to cut something that you added to the Miscellaneous list while shopping or you may have to rethink your down payment on your vehicle purchase or find a cheaper rental deposit.
