Belloni Branch Presents "Budgeting for a Better Life"

On Tuesday, October 6, at 5:30 p.m., the Pam S. Belloni Branch Library and Citizens Bank will present "Budgeting for a Better Life." This program is part 4 in our Financial Education Workshop.

Just like exercise, budgeting is often associated with grueling work and too much effort. However, creating and maintaining a budget doesn't have to be a painful process. If you consider budgeting a way of providing an improved life for yourself and your family using the resources you already have, it will become a much more pleasant journey.
