So you’ve made a budget, and have a plan for spending your money. But at the end of the month, you have a look at your bank account and realize you’re overspending in certain categories (hello, groceries) and spending money on things you hadn’t budgeted for.

These days, it’s hard to curb our consumerist behaviour; advertising and product placement are everywhere we turn.

By attending this workshop, hosted by the Credit Counselling Society, you will learn how to identify wants versus needs, techniques to curb impulse spending, and how to avoid scams and fraud.
