Next Meeting Date: We have now had two group sessions. From this point forward, it is up to you to make individual appointments to complete the remaining requirements. Remember to track and record your income and expenses daily in a log - you must do this for 3 months (13 weeks).

For requirement 1, have your parents sign saying that you had your family discussion.

Be prepared to discuss Requirement 7 and to review your progress on Requirement 2 - tracking of your income and expenses versus your budget.

Remember: You must submit your proposed budget of income and expenses and get it approved by Mr. Nishibayashi before you begin tracking your actual income and expenses for the 13 week period.

Due to the concepts that you must learn for this merit badge, I have found that those Scouts who are 14 years of age or older benefit the most from what they learn from this merit badge.
