Where did my money go? How am I going to pay this month’s bills?

·       How much is too much to spend on something new?

Have any of these questions passed your mind? These questions and more can be answered in your personal spending plan. This one-page document summarizes all income and expenses in your family. Also known as “budgeting,” making a spending plan allows you to take control over your finances.

On Tuesday, September 25, we’ll spend an hour talking about your personal financial goals. Then we’ll talk about how a spending plan can help you reach those goals. In subsequent webinars, we’ll review our spending plans, talk about tips to living within our means, and share our setbacks and triumphs in a caring space. All you need is a tracking paper and the desire to take control over your finances!

This webinar is designed to give you the tools to make your money work for you. It’s not to pass judgment on how you spend money. We all make choices, every day, about our finances. The purpose of creating a spending plan is to see how your money is earned and spent, and make sure it fits with your life goals. We’ll talk about some general guidelines, and share tips on trimming expenses, eliminating debt, or handling credit. But any changes are up to you. Plain and simple.

Join us to start the process of being intentional with your finances!
