A financial health check will give you a clear picture of your finances and help you identify where you need to make changes.  This gives you a chance to look at money coming in and out, look at areas where savings can be made (see www.consumerhelp.ie for money saving tips) and is a chance to think about and plan for future goals.  In this lesson, students continue to practice the skills of budgeting.  Drawing on Lesson Twelve: Homework Task students should take a closer look at budgets and identify the changes that can be made to create a healthier budget.
