If you want to get a handle on your finances, a local non-profit is offering a one-night crash course on getting started.
Connie Unruh is the Financial Literacy Coordinator for the TS Institute and she indicates their Wednesday evening event will help you get yourself started in setting a budget and better managing your money.
Unruh calls the boot camp a starting point for people, teaching about tracking spending and understanding where their money ends up each month. With a lot of good electronic resources available, Unruh says the tried and true method of writing things down is the best way to do it.
For those that come out, Unruh hopes to find out what they are interested in learning about. She says while a lot of people are at various points in their financial journeys, some topics will appeal to a lot of people.
The budget boot camp program is Wednesday night from 6 pm to 7:30 pm at the Warner Wellness Center at 418 West South Street. It is free and Unruh says anyone who comes out will get a budget booklet they will be able to use to get themselves started.
