Posted: Friday, March 16, 2018

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 Huntington County Educator for Health & Human Sciences. “There may be enough money coming into the household to pay for expenses that are needed but what 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 Street. This is a free two session series. Part 1 will be on Tuesday, March 20 at 4 p.m. Part 2 will be on Tuesday, April 17 at 4 p.m. If interested, call to sign up to attend this interactive free class at (260) 358-4826. If you have a disability that requires special assistance for your participation, please contact the Purdue Cooperative Extension Service, Huntington County at (260) 358-4826.
