My Future Lifestyle


My Future Lifestyle is part of the Career
and College Readiness Lesson Plan series provided by the California Career Resource Network,
California Department of Education. In this lesson, you will learn that living the lifestyle
you want depends a lot on the amount of money you make. Identifying the lifestyle you want
to live includes deciding things like do you want to live in an apartment or a house? Will
you go out a lot or stay home? Will you take public transportation or buy a car? Once you’ve
decided on your lifestyle, you need to know how much money your choices will cost. Housing,
will it cost $500 or $5,000 a month? Entertainment – will it cost $50 or $250 a month? Transportation
– will it cost $300 or $600 a month? All your lifestyle choices impact how much you spend
and this determines how much you need to make. Sound complicated? How do you determine what
your lifestyle will cost and discover occupations to cover that cost? You’ll use Make Money
Choices on the California CareerZone. This lesson and other resources are available on
the California Career Resource Network’s Web site.
