You need to develop a personal budget. Try to be as realistic as possible. If you are going to school and not working then do some research to find out what salary you will be making when you graduate. If you are working full time you can use your income now or an estimated amount assuming you will be making more money when you graduate.
For Example:
Budget Actual
Gross Monthly Pay

Total est deductions
Net Pay

Rent/Mortgage
Utility – Electric
Utility - Gas
Utility – Water
Cable/Internet
Phone/Cell
.
.
.
Total Expense

Total savings

Take your total savings and multiply by 12 for 12 months. This is your estimated saving (payment) per year. (If you want to do a more elaborate budget you can).

To make this budget useful do this in excel so you can actually use it.
Note: You can do your budget however you want as long as it is clear and understandable to the reader (me) and you.

Using as many time lines as you need forecast all your projected savings(investments) to get each investments future value. You will have to determine your PV, I/y, N, PMT then calc FV

If you don’t have any idea on the I/y you could use 5 or 6% to be conservative. N depends on your current age and when you think you will retire.

Savings
401k or (403B) whichever you use
IRA’s….
Home Ect…….

Once you add up all the future values from step 2 above, and do a time line to determine how much you will be able to spend each year assuming you are going to spend all your money. I.e. your future value will be 0. To calculate N, you have to make a lot of assumptions. For example, if you are planning on retiring at age 65 and think (hope) you will life until you are 90 (25 years) your N will be 25.

Once you are completed with the three sections above write a page or two on what you learned from this project. This is open ended but I expect at a minimum of 1 page as a write up.

• APA formatting required for all outside sources.
