### Question Description

(you can just make up things. i'm an 18 year old boy so things that are relevant to that :) )

#### Sinking Fund Savings

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

After you have fully funded your emergency fund, you can start saving for other items. You will usually have a few big expenses, like an upcoming vacation, team or club dues, music or athletic equipment, and prom. These things can be budget busters if you do not plan ahead. Using a sinking fund savings approach for large purchases means, when the time comes, you will have cash on hand for large purchases and can avoid going into debt.

View the example form below that can be used to break down those upcoming expenses into bite-sized chunks for your monthly budget.

A (item)B (\$ needed)C (# of months)D (\$ amount budgeted)
Homecoming
Club dues
Sports fees
Christmas
Valentine's Day
Spring break
Anniversary
Prom
Other
##### Instructions
1. Open Sinking Fund Savings form: .docor .rtf
2. In column A (item) you list the common, large expenses for which you need to plan. If you have an upcoming expense that is not listed, fill it in as Other.
3. For the items that apply to you, write how much money you will need for that expense in column B (needed). Then, calculate how many months you have to save for that item, and write that in column C (# of months).
For example: It is January and you want to have \$120 spending money saved for your family vacation in July. Between January and July there are six months so, you have six months to save.
4. For each item, divide the "needed" amount by the "# of months" in which you have to save. Write that number in column D (budget).
For example: For your spending money for family vacation, \$120 divided by six months is \$20 a month. That is how much you need to save each month to have \$120 in time for vacation.
5. Upon completion of your sinking fund form, answer the following questions in two to three sentences each:
• Describe the advantages of saving for short-, medium-, and long-term goals.
• What is the purpose of a sinking fund?
• What might be a consequence of not having a sinking fund for large purchases?
6. Submit your completed sinking fund form and your responses to the questions above.

In the Budget Builder lesson for this chapter, you will write your sinking fund savings into your budget.
