Financial Skills: Budgeting and Expense Planning

February 25, 2019 at 1:00 PM to 2:45 PM

Location:482 MacOdrum Library

This workshop primarily focuses on how to create and maintain a reasonable budget given your income level. It covers the main pitfalls of improper budgeting and will show you ways to stay on track. Learn about how targeted marketing may contribute to unnecessary spending and how to effectively monitor and cut costs, determine your spending patterns, and automate your savings. Join us for this workshop brought to you in part by the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada to learn how small changes in your daily spending can lead to major savings down the road.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn how to create a budget, save money, and identify spending patterns.
  • Identify strategies used by companies to increase your spending and how to best counteract them.
  • Familiarize yourself with free online resources provided by the government of Canada and others that can be used to make better financial decisions.

Note: While not required, it is recommended to attend both Budgeting and Expense Planning and Debt and Credit Scores, your schedule permitting, in order to get the most out of these workshops.
