Feeding Your Family Costs How Much?
Friday, October 5th | 12 PM – 1 PM

How much does it really cost to feed my family ? After this session, you will learn how to plan out your meals for the month. You will see your grocery budget shrink and your family will eat at home more. You will still get to dine out some days, but the cost won’t cause any stress because its already a part of your plan.

So many places offer rewards, but it is difficult to grasp which ones really benefit the consumer. This seminar will show you how to be loyal to certain businesses to gain the rewards they are offering. You will also learn to use your smart phone to get points when shopping. The benefits of gaming are cash, gift cards, gas and more.

Raining Money!
Monday, October 22nd | 1 PM – 2 PM
ELGA Credit Union Administration Building
2305 S. Center Road
Burton, MI 48519

When emergencies happen, we need to know we have the funds to cover them. Emergencies range from needing new tires on your car to a household repair. We all have expenses for which we didn’t budget and not having to pay for it on credit or run to a pay day cash advance store is the goal. Discussions include benefits of selling on different sites such as Ebay, Facebook county sales, Poshmark and Amazon. We also talk about the benefits of tax deductions for leftover unsold items.

Pay Those Kids A Salary, It’s Cheaper!
Wednesday, October 24th | 2 PM – 3 PM
ELGA Credit Union Administration Building
2305 S. Center Road
Burton, MI 48519

Paying your kids a weekly allowance is so much cheaper than buying them things each time they ask for it. When you make them work for it, they appreciate it. When they have to pay for it themselves, they make better decisions. By helping your kids in this way, you will be serving them and their future spouse by teaching them important things when it really matters.
