Make a Wish List 
Studies show that writing down 
your goals makes them more likely 
to become reality. So start writing!
1.  Create a two-column chart. In 
the left-hand column, list all the 
things you want to do or buy 
that cost money. 
2.  In the right-hand column, note 
whether each item is a short-, 
medium-, or long-term goal.
3.  Use different colored 
highlighters or pens to label 
each item as low-, medium-,  
or high-priority. 
Focus on Finances
Thinking Ahead
Money management probably sounds very dull to you. You might think financial planning means you have 
to put all your money in the bank. It might make you fear that you’ll never have any cash for fun things like 
going to the movies or buying a new outfit. But that’s not what it’s all about. 
Financial planning simply means giving some thought to the things you want—
and the things you need—and coming up with a plan to get them. It means 
balancing spending money with saving money. It means knowing where your 
money comes from and where it goes. 
Financial planning is also about setting goals. Again, that might sound 
like a big bore. But what if one of your goals is to buy that new bike, or 
pull together a stash of spending money for your next family vacation,  
or treat yourself to a new laptop computer? By setting financial goals  
and thinking about how you spend your dollars, you’ll eventually be able 
to afford those big-ticket items.
The first step in reaching your financial goals is to figure out 
what they are. Start dreaming and make a wish list!
The items on your list will probably fall into 
three categories: 
Go for the Goal!
These are called short-term, medium-term, and long-term 
financial goals. A short-term goal might be to download 
a new app or game, buy a bottle of nail polish, or go 
to a movie with friends. A medium-term goal might be  
to get a new pair of shoes, a skateboard, or a fab  
birthday gift for your BFF. Long-term goals could include 
purchasing such things as a TV for your bedroom, a smart 
watch, or rock-climbing lessons. The sky’s the limit!
Now take a look at your wish list. Which items are the 
most important to you? If buying a TV is more important 
to you than going to the movies with your friends every 
week, make a note of that. It doesn’t mean you’ll never go 
the movies with your friends again. It simply means you’re 
starting to think about what matters to you. By skipping the 
occasional movie, you can bank a bit of extra cash to get 
you closer to buying that smart watch. 
The idea is to figure out which things matter to you most, 
and what choices you’re willing to make to get them. 
Remember, if you spend all your money as soon as you get 
it, you may never reach your medium- or long-term financial 
goals. Sure, it can be more fun now to blow your bucks 
on music, movies, or munchies than to bank them for use 
later. But if you save a portion of your weekly allowance and 
a bit of birthday money, you’ll be surprised at how quickly 
those dollars will add up to the purchase price of a phone, 
concert ticket, or that blingy thing that caught your eye.
1.  Things you can afford now 
with the money you have. 
2.  Small things that a few weeks’ 
allowance or a paycheck from 
your part-time job will cover. 
3.  Large things (like that bike) 
that you’ll have to save for.
