Thrifty Thursday: Take a Free Money Management Class

One way to save money is to learn how to be a better manager of your personal finances. I regret the number of times I paid late fees, for example, simply because I didn't make sitting down and doing the bills part of my regular weekly routine.

Here's a list of free money management courses you can take online:

It’s shocking how little the typical young adult knows about finances. My husband and I are in our sixties, and we are still learning. I think we need to do a better job of teaching personal finance in the public schools, but until we do, these online courses are a great idea!
