I found this Financial Mad Lib over at Budgets Are Sexy and just had to share. This is a take on the classic game…but related to your finances. To play all you have to do is fill in the blank spaces with your responses.
(If you are not reading this post at www.howisavemoney.net or in your feed reader, it may have been stolen from my site.)
The blank Financial Mad Lib:
Hi, my name is ______ . I currently have ______ dollars in my wallet. When I started managing my finances I was worth _______, and now have a net worth of _______. I currently work ________ and have been doing it for ______ years. I make roughly ______ per year. I want to have ______waiting for me when it comes time to retire. Aside from learning about finances, I really enjoy ______. I think the world would be a better place if _____ didn’t exist. I had ______ for dinner last night and it was ______. I have had ______ significant others over the course of my lifetime (counting awkward middle school relationships). One thing that makes me different is ______. Now that I’m done with this mad lib, I think I’m going to ______.
I edited a few of the sentences a bit to fit my situation better as you can see below. This is the one I posted over at the original site!!!
My Financial Mad Lib:
Hi, my name is Lulu. I currently have 65 cents (don’t carry cash..found this on the ground) in my wallet. When I started managing my finances I was worth some negative amount, and now have a net worth of about $15,000 (sigh grad school). I currently work on finishing my dissertation and have been in this PhD program for 4 years. I make peanuts per year (full time grad student). I want to have $1,000,000 waiting for me when it comes time to retire.
Aside from learning about finances, I really enjoy watching crime scene dramas. I think the world would be a better place if Bath and Body Works would lower their candle prices, green beans did not exist, and everyone used credit cards wisely. I had cheese puffs and tea for dinner last night and it was a reward for eating well during the day and making my 10k steps. I have had 1 significant others over the course of my lifetime (counting awkward middle school relationships) because I stopped counting after 1. One thing that makes me different is I can’t sleep without socks. Now that I’m done with this mad lib, I think I’m going to go to Walmart to pick up my online order (gotta rake in those ebates dollars!!!).
See how easy that was?
Now all you have to do is copy the blank one into the comments and respond with YOUR answers!!!
I’m tagging Krystal at Give Me Back My Five Bucks to do this post as well.
