Budget Project By: Grace Obanigba


Introduction Okay, the time has come when I have finally graduated from college and am on my own. Wohoo! This is what I’ve been waiting for all my life! I get to buy whatever I want, eat whatever I want, and go anywhere I want. But, adulthood isn’t always that easy. I have to pay bills, find a house, and a car! I’m lucky to be in upper class where I get $100,000 a year, but I wonder where it all disappears to. Making a budget will help me see that.

My House:

My House My house is located at 4828 Sabine St. Fort Worth, TX 76137. It has a swimming pool and it is close to nearby parks, playgrounds, trails, and exemplary schools.

My house insurance is $79.83 monthly. My water bill is $127.49 a month.

In conclusion…:

In conclusion… Creating a budget was a great way to see where a lot of people’s money goes and why there are so many people in poverty. I saw how much you have to pay in taxes, insurance, and utility bills. Not everyone has that kind of money. These kinds of projects encourage you to try to get good grades, so you can get into college, and get a good job, so you can be able to pay your bills and support your family. This project was a good way to give us a taste of adulthood. I’ve learned that being an adult isn’t all that great, so I hope to be a child for as long as I can.
