Making Cents of Money:
Budgeting 101

Nobody was born knowing how to manage money and knowing how to avoid the cost of financial stress. Many parents didn’t discuss money at home, and money management wasn’t taught in school. Learning how to manage money the hard way is, well, hard. It doesn’t have to be that way. Creating a monthly spending plan (budget) with an irregular income is a skill that participants can easily learn, along with the 7 Steps they can take to get in and stay in control of their finances.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of the session, participants will:

  • be able to reflect on their money values and financial goals
  • learn how to achieve financial priorities
  • manage their irregular emergency and savings expenses
  • create and organize their savings
