We can tell our values by looking at our checkbook stubs.  — Gloria Steinem

Think about your money inflow and outflow. Create a pie chart of where you think you spend your money and then do a quick analysis of your actual spending. Can you identify pockets of special money in your household?

Host a “money movie” night. Show movies where money is a major theme or motivator. What healthy and unhealthy behaviors do you observe? What values are at work? Examples include: Rain Man, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Color of Money, Brewster’s Millions, Ocean’s Eleven, and It’s a Wonderful Life.
