# Excel - School Supplies Budget

## Students Create a Budget Showing Allowance, Expenses, Money Left Over

Each student has \$65.00 dollars to spend for school supplies. Students will keep some supplies for their own use and donate some to students in other classes. Students should purchase as much as they can up to the \$65.00 limit without going over.

Students create a budget using a spreadsheet to show how much they have to spend (allowance) , and how much each item costs (expenses). Students use autosum to calculate the total costs. Students create a simple formula to subract total expenses from the \$65.00 allowance to show how much money is left over (money left over). Students create a chart showing their expenses.
