My Life My Choices™ - Corrections Edition

A game of financial choice and consequence. Great for anyone exiting incarceration or on probation or parole!


THE SCENARIO: You are living on your own, you have a full-time job earning about $10 per hour, steady income (or about $1,500 each month after taxes). You have just received your most recent paycheck and now have $1,000 in your account.

YOUR TASK: On the next screen, you will be given a list of 28 items and activities you could spend your monthly budget on. Unfortunately, your paycheck earns you only enough to choose 13 of them.

MATERIALS: It will be helpful, though not necessary, to use the Cash Flow Register available at to track your income and expenses throughout this activity. Download the register at

As you go through this activity, you will be presented with real scenarios that will have financial consequences for better or for worse, based upon your choices.
