Strengthening your financial core: Workshops on comparison shopping & creating a budget

Posted on November 26, 2019 at 6:00 am

If getting a handle on finances is always at the top of your New Year’s resolution list, we have a couple financial workshops that will interest you.

In December, learn about comparison shopping. Whether you’re a last-minute shopper or you’ve already finished holiday shopping and all presents are wrapped, we’ll show you valuable comparison shopping skills that you can use for all future purchases.

In January, don’t miss our budgeting workshop and make 2020 the best year of your personal finances ever!

Comparison Shopping

For adults

Find the best price for the things you want to buy. We’ll share how to use top sites for price comparisons and Consumer Reports to research products, so you can make smart spending decisions.

Thursday, Dec 5, 6:30–7:30pm

Creating a Budget from Scratch

For adults

Like a good recipe, a successful budget has all of the required ingredients. Learn what goes into a budget and how a successful budget can help you with spending decisions. Then you can create a budget of your own using our laptops. Registration is required.
