Make a list of categories for your expenses. You can do this on paper, or on a computer spreadsheet. Be prepared for a long list and use the information you gathered when you tracked your spending. Typical categories include rent/mortgage, gas, electric, water, TV, internet, pool care, trash removal, groceries, eating out, entertainment, club dues, child care, gasoline, hair care, and medical, but the list is endless. You can find templates on the internet, but you should customize it for your situation.

If you have decided you want to be the one dealing with the behavior problems your child faces in school, don’t give away your parenting power! You are the best judge of your own child. You know what motivates him (or doesn’t). You understand his home life and his heart.

Students in public or private schools normally keep all school supplies in their book bags or their lockers at school. For home school children, the locker and book bag are known as home. However, there needs to be distinct differences between the home and school environment.
