Thrifty Tuesdays helps you save money!
It's almost Financial Literacy Month, join us for a presentation by the Credit Counselling Society and gain skills you probably didn't learn in school, but will use for the rest of your life!
Learn about the important documents you need, how to store them securely and create a "just in case something happens to me" sheet so your loved ones can take of your affairs.
From the presenter
Bills, statements, documents, papers – it’s overwhelming how much information we have about our finances. This information may be stuffed into a box, a shopping bag, or tucked away into a few folders. This can give us a sense of chaos, so we don’t even know where to begin to get some control and organization.
The benefits of organizing your finances are significant – you (or your family) will know where to find important documents when needed, you can get control and stay in control of your finances, and you can de-clutter and reduce your stress. Once you’ve created a system that works for you, maintenance becomes much easier – as mail comes in, you open it, deal with it and then file it away. Simple as that!
The Organizing Your Finances in 1 Month workshop will take you through a 4 week step-by-step process to creating an organized system. You will learn how to:
Set up a folder system (paper or electronic) for your finances that includes your:
- Bank information
- Regular bills
- Income taxes
- Other property information
- Plus more!
Set up a back-up system to protect your information;
Learn how to create an “In the Event Of...” document for your loved ones to use if something happens to you; and
Look into various online resources to gather more information.
This is a 90 minute workshop that is fun and interactive! We take a “grab and go” approach – grab an idea or two and go try it. All participants will walk away with ideas, resources and the full curriculum upon request.
