Women and Moneynewby.17 | July 9, 2009
Women from all walks of life are making tough choices about money in Ohio. There is never enough money for all the things we’d like to have, let alone money to pays bills on time and feed our families daily. Ohio Treasurer Keven L. Boyce’s office is providing financial education and resources to women across Ohio this summer in the The Smart Money Choices Tour. Each week the tour is in a different location to provide a day of motivational speakers and information for woman to learn more about credit and debt, basic budgeting, becoming a homeowner in this economy, insurance, identity theft, kids and money, and retirement planning. All classes are free, no cost to Ohio women.
Are you ready to sign up and attend a free day of classes that includes lunch and special guest speakers at each location? Go to http://www.ohiotreasurer.gov/ and click on Smart Money Choices. The following dates are still available to sign up for:
- July 17th at Akron University Student Center
- July 24th Cleveland State University
- July 31st Wright Patterson Air Force Base
- August 28th in Marietta.
Managing money in tough times is not easy. These workshops across Ohio will teach and encourage woman:
- how to cope with stress when income changes
- How to keep a roof overhead, whether you rent or own
- how to stretching food dollars with the increasing cost of foods
- strategies for reducing food costs by buying fresh foods, cooking and portion control
- finding ways to free up cash from services such as utilities, cell phones, TV and computer services.
Theses classes are taught by the experts in each field and Ohio State University Extension Educators across Ohio. This is a great opportunity to learn, make new friends, and change your life with new strategies on individual financial planning. These classes will provide participants with the necessary tools to help them thrive in this economy.
