MAKING MONEY COUNT
NEEDS vs WANTS
A need is something rhat is essential and important, We all need food, clothes, and shelter.
A want is something you would like to have, but you can always wait to get it,
There will always be times in your life when you will have to ask yourself, Is this item a need or a want? If you make this a practice every time you are about to spend, you will make good choices. Take care of needs first. Then, if you have extra funds, you can spend it on your wants.
Always remember that even if your friend has an item you like, thads not a good enough reason to consider why you must have it too. Sometimes, it’s also a good habit to wait at least a month to pass by to see if the item is still Important.
Look at the list below. Put an “n” next to those that are needs. Put a “w” next to those that are wants.
