Resources about dealing with money in everyday situations. Six simple narratives take a look at the income and spending habits of a teenager and his family and friends. Where does their money come from? (Pocket money, birthday presents, wages, benefits?) How much do things cost? How do you budget to spread your allowance at college, or your wages at work? What is profit? How do you work out whether your charity event will make money? The stories highlight people’s different financial situations (at college, at work, out of work, on a pension) and show how different people have different demands on their money.
