Where Does Your Money Go?

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 harder to make ends meet. If you, like many others, are wondering how you can stretch your paycheck and make your money go further, you will want to attend the program “Where Does Your Money Go?”

“A fresh look at your financial situation can give you new insight into ways to change spending behaviors in order to have more money,” says Karen Hinshaw, Purdue Extension Educator for Consumer and Family Sciences. “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 “Where Does Your Money Go?” program will be presented by Karen Hinshaw, Purdue Extension Educator, at Purdue Extension Huntington County, 1340 S Jefferson St, Huntington, IN on August 10, 2017 at 5:30pm. . Please call to sign up to attend this interactive free class, 260-358-4826.
