How to Create a Budget and Build Your Savings
Thu March 24, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Creating a budget doesn’t come naturally to most of us. But when you’re trying to get your finances in order – whether it’s paying down debt, increasing savings, or some other money goal – then a budget is the best place to start. A budget is a way to create a plan for your money, and that can help you reach other money goals. We’ll look at different tips and tricks for saving, and we’ll assess the pros and cons of the various types of accounts where you can stash your savings, from bank savings accounts to CDs, IRAs and more. We’ll also talk about the power of compounding, and we’ll look at how creating a detailed map of your goals can help you stick to your savings plan.
Join Andrea Coombes for this invaluable workshop! Andrea is a financial coach and certified consumer credit counselor. She also leads the Smart Money Coaching program at the SF LGBTQ Center.
