Money seminar scheduled

Thursday, October 6, 2011

Does your money run out before the end of the month?

Is it difficult to pay your bills on time? Do you wish you had more money?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then attending "Where Does Your Money Go," is right for you.

The Habitat for Humanity of Clay County will host a three-session free class in Clay County beginning Thursday, Oct. 13.

The program was created by Purdue Extension to provide an introductory course in money management and financial stability.

When payday rolls around, many consumers will be trying to figure out which bills they will pay and which ones will wait until another paycheck comes in.

With increasing costs for necessary expenses such as gasoline, utilities and healthcare, consumers are finding it hard to make ends meet.

A fresh look at your financial situation can give you new insight into ways to change spending behaviors in order to have more money.

There may be enough money coming into the household to pay for expenses that are needed if some unnecessary items are eliminated or postponed.

This program gives participants an opportunity to rethink how they are currently spending money and make a plan for future spending.

The program will be presented at the Clay County Purdue Extension Office Meeting Room at the Clay County Fairgrounds.

The three-session series will take place on Thursdays, Oct. 13, 20 and 27, at 6:30 p.m.

Call 448-9041 to sign up to attend the free series.

Those with a disability that requires assistances, for participation should contact the Purdue Cooperative Extension Service Clay County, at 448-9041.
