Where does your money go?

It’s a question we all ask ourselves all too often:  where does our money go?

Purdue Extension Huntington County is ready to help, offering a program designed to help answer that question and help participants learn to stretch their paycheck.

Karen Hinshaw, Purdue Extension Huntington County Educator for Health & Human Sciences, points out that when payday rolls around, many consumers find themselves 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 may find it harder to make ends meet. 

“A fresh look at your financial situation can give you new insight into ways to change spending behaviors in order to have more money,” said Hinshaw. “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.”

Hinshaw will present the program, “Where Does Your Money Go?” It is a free two session series. Part 1 takes place on March 20 at 4 p.m. Part 2 will be held on April 17 at 4 p.m. The sessions will be held at Purdue Extension Huntington County, 1340 S. Jefferson Street, in Huntington. Call to register to attend the interactive class at 260-358-4826.

Persons with a disability requiring special assistance should contact the Purdue Cooperative Extension Service, Huntington County at 260-358-4826.
