A single-session basic budgeting workshop
The workshop starts by exploring how guests feel about their financial situation and then quickly introduces the Budget Builder tool, looking in detail at how to create a budget that works for each guest.
After a short break, guests start to think about their priorities and spending habits, and together we look at ways of saving money. We also look briefly at the importance of starting a savings habit.
Finally, we look at the issue of debt and how to deal with it, and close by focussing on practical methods for managing our bills and day-to-day payments using the Piggy Banking technique.
Money Essentials Guest Handbook
The Money Essentials Handbook is every guest’s indispensable companion to the workshop. Containing all the notes and exercises from the session itself, it is also an invaluable reference tool for the guest to use after the session.
We recommend that printed copies are ordered for each guest, but a low-res downloadable version is also available.
