Then make a chart that has three columns. Put these headers at the top of the columns: –

NEEDS                 WANTS              UNDECIDED

Your task is to sort out these things into needs and wants by discussing with your group where you think each one should go. During your discussion you may find you are undecided as to whether a thing or service is a need or a want, or maybe you can’t agree on something. Work out a positive way to solve this problem. But in all cases, be ready to defend your thinking!!
