This past week Sara had the opportunity to share the “Reality Check” Session with people from WINGS Ministry, an organization that helps people who have loved ones that have been incarcerated. Every week they share a meal and a life skills lesson.
One of the “eye opening” activities in Money & ME encourages participants to identify three items: a daily purchase (or almost every day), a weekly purchase, and a monthly purchase.
- WOW….I spend a $1.50 every day on a coke. I didn’t know I was spending $547.50 a year!
- WOW…I spend $35 each week on gas, that is $1,820 a year!
- WOW…I spend $135 each month on cable, that is $1,620 a year!
