When money is tight and resources are limited, creating a ‘plan for spending’ might be the last thing on your mind. Creating this plan when you’re in a low or no-income situation can actually be one of the best ways to begin to problem solve and gain control over your financial life. In this workshop, we explore the use of creative thinking and resourcefulness to build a spending plan that moves you towards greater financial stability. Learn to use tools and techniques to make a budget that works for YOU through the use of community and personal resources that help bridge financial gaps. Identify the nuts and bolts of how to track your income and expenses. Leave this workshop with clear, motivating action steps to help you gain power of your financial situation.
