Would you like a little more money in the bank for a rainy day? Is the cost of living overtaking your paycheck? Join us to discuss stretching your hard-earned dollar to stay within your budget and save for your future!
The Richland County UW-Extension and Neighborhood Housing Services of Richland County are sponsoring a workshop with tips and tools to create a spending and saving plan you can live with. “How to Save a Dollar…When you don’t have a dime to spare” will be held on Thursday, Jan. 24 from 6 – 7 :30 p.m. in Room 713 in East Hall on the UW-Richland Campus. The workshop presenters are Peggy Olive, UW-Extension Family Living Agent, and Linda Smith, NHS Homeownership Center Coordinator.
This workshop will help you discover ways to save in everyday spending and create a personal plan to increase your savings, pay down debt, or reach other financial goals. It’s guaranteed to be pain-free and maybe even a little fun. Regardless of how much money a person earns, if you don’t make plans and know where you’re going, you may not like where you end up.
To help stretch your budget, this workshop is free and open to all. Pre-registration is requested by Jan. 23 by calling The Richland County UW-Extension office at 647-6148 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Join us and make 2013 a fresh financial start!
