Session 2: Main activity

Main Activity: Create a budget for your bedroom design. 

You will need: Click here for the Bedroom Options worksheet.

Click here for the Bedroom Budget worksheet.

You may also use: A note pad, word document, or whiteboard. 

Step 1: Look at the Bedroom Options worksheet above to choose which items you would like for your room and add your basic spends together. Then print out the Bedroom Budget worksheet, or you can create your own by copying ours onto a blank piece of paper.

Step 2: What’s left? Subtract the basic spends from your total budget amount.

Step 3: Choose your extra items and add up the cost.

Step 4: Make sure all the spends add up to your budget or less! If you have overspent you need to go back and make some changes.

How did you do?  Did you manage to keep within budget or did you overspend and have to prioritise and make some changes?
