Maximizing Your Money: Budgeting & Saving

May 19, 2021. 530PM 

This workshop steps away from old-fashioned budgeting and saving advice such as the 70/20/10 rule (70% of your money to bills, 20% for saving, 10% for investing/retirement/fun), and focuses on maximizing the money you already have.

Together, we'll walk through how to determine your income, expenses, creating a budget, and tips/tricks for stretching those dollars.
