Wednesday and Friday at Valor Crisis and Training Center


Money and Budgeting classes Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia

Simple Budgeting:
Budgeting has a very bad reputation with millions of people. In fact, only 32% of Americans have a written budget and less, 30%, have a long-term plan for their money in the future. This helps explains why 69% of Americans have less than $1000.00 in a savings account. I created this simple Budgeting class to present specifically to groups that are interested how to get started with budgeting in a simplified manner.

  • Why create a budget
  • Overcome fears of budgeting by using two words
  • What to do first
  • How to prepare a zero balanced budget
  • How to stay on track

Financial Strengths and Weaknesses:
Assessing your personal financial strength and weaknesses can be intimidating and scary. This class is designed to help each person take a close look at what areas of finances they do well at and what area they could improve upon.

  • Financial Strengths and Weakness Assessment
  • Ways to improve in each area
  • A close look at money mindset

Meal Planning:
The average family of four in America spends anywhere from $564.00-$1156.00 a month on groceries. This may not be shocking to you. But on average that same family of four wastes 25% of that food a month totaling anywhere from $1365.00 - $2275.00 per year. So basically you take 2 months of food and drop it off at the landfill before it ever gets home. Meal planning is a great way to combat food waste but also it helps cut costs and improve your family's eating habits.

  • Why Prepare a Meal Plan
  • Food Inventories
  • Family Staples
  • How to Approach Weekly and Monthly Planning
  • Stocking a Pantry
  • Meal Planning Inspirations
