Reviewer Comments:

This activity allows students to practice budgeting and interior design planning by purchasing furniture for a bedroom. The furniture resource link was not functioning. Additionally, the activity could be improved by including a budgeting worksheet and sample designs. Students purchase pieces within a given budget constraint and then create a scale drawing of the bedroom. With some additional preparation by the instructor, this activity could be very engaging for students.
