Roll with Your Overspending
If you have a budget—great, you need one. But if your overspending is still out of control your budget alone cannot save you. We’ll teach you some proven strategies to beat your overspending and create better habits in the future. Bring your questions!
Your Budget Routine
Developing a budget routine is a small investment of time that will yield big results! Join us as we learn how to build YNAB’s import features into your routine so you can stay focused on your budget.
Debt & Credit Cards
Master Credit Cards with Your Budget
If your use of credit cards (and the resulting balances!) is stressing you out, we can teach you how to handle a credit card wisely in your budget and ultimately, eliminate that stress and uncertainty.
What to Do When You Have to Use a Credit Card
You’ve got a solid understanding of the YNAB method and how credit cards work, but there are times when you have to use a credit card because there isn’t enough money in the budget to cover a given expense. In this workshop, we’ll show you how to handle that exact situation and how to create a debt pay down goal to get back on track.
Create a Debt Paydown Plan
In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to create a debt paydown plan. We’ll review which things you should focus on first, and how to decide how much you can afford to budget toward debt.
Reach Your Savings Goals

We’ll show you how to manage your savings account, and use the budget to save even more.

Saving Money on Groceries
Are you frustrated every month by how much you spend on food? Whether it’s Costco runs or eating out, if you don’t pay attention, food can and will eat your budget! We will discuss proven strategies for saving money on food and freeing up some extra money in your budget.
Budgeting When Money is Tight
