    Requirement 2.  Scouts are required to prepare a budget.  The budget must include income and expenses. Next, scouts should be tracking actual weekly income (allowance, gifts, work etc.) and expenses (going to movies, buying lunch at school, Xbox purchases, phone, special clothing etc. ).    At the end of the 13 weeks scouts will be required to compare the budget to actual.  Tracking 13 weeks of allowance will not be enough.  At this point, Scouts should have completed 5 weeks.
