Take financial control of your life

with Purdue Extension program

Program added 6/18/20202

 

 

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. —Purdue Extension Health and Human Sciences (HHS), has launched a free online program for anyone seeking money management best practices and financial control. The Where Does Your Money Go? online program will guide participants through the creation of their spending-savings plan and provide practical resources for them to use in their own lives.

 

The program was recently switched to an online platform to make it accessible during the COVID-19 pandemic. The six-module course includes videos, interactive activities, self-assessments and downloadable spending tracking forms. The program is self-paced and can be completed at the viewer’s convenience. Participants should allow approximately four to six weeks to complete the modules and associated activities. 

 

After completion of the course, participants will understand how current money management practices affect financial security, how to establish good financial management practices and new habits that create personal financial security. Best practices that will be explored and discussed include identifying spending leaks, categorizing needs vs. wants, tracking expenses and establishing written financial goals.

 

“The goal of the course is to increase your financial knowledge and resources so you can manage your personal finances better. Managing money takes learned skills and we hope that this program will help anyone who wants to learn or improve those skills,” said Naomi Bechtold, Purdue Extension specialist for family resource management and course organizer.
