Here at You Need a Budget, we put education first. We’ve been offering free, webinar-style budgeting classes since 2009. In fact, we’ve taught over half a million aspiring budgeters to start on the path of total control over their money.

Try a Free Budgeting Class

Our free budgeting classes come in the form of live workshops. They are short (20 minutes!) with plenty of one-on-one interaction (you can ask live questions!). If you’ve never had a budget before or need a refresher, try this learn-at-your-own-pace video course that will teach you the Four Rules for budgeting success.

Want to know how to save money on food costs? Or beat the credit card companies at their own game? Need to know how to beat overspending? We’ve got a workshop for that!

Our teachers have been through the trenches. They know this stuff in their bones. Jedi Master level skills. No question too big or too small, because the goal is to help you succeed.

Our Budgeting Classes Work

There is a togetherness in this smaller, more personal environment, which—turns out—is more rewarding for the teachers, and more helpful for the students. It doesn’t take a budgeting expert to call this a win-win.

Our research shows that people who attend a workshop are about four times more likely to be successful with You Need A Budget than those who don’t. So, if you haven’t taken a YNAB workshop yet, you might be surprised how much you can learn in just 20 minutes!

Go to our Classes page, scroll through the workshop options and sign-up for the one that best fits your needs and your schedule. We run them all hours of the day and every night of the week. Even if you have a crazy, busy schedule, you can make it work.
