I mentioned this event in my newspaper column on Monday, but didn’t have all the details yet. The updated article was in today’s edition of The Monroe Evening News:

Monroe Bank and Trust is sponsoring a free community workshop entitled the “Psychol­ogy of Spending” to be presented from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, in Room 173 C of the administration/student services building at Mon­roe County Community College, 1555 S. Raisinville Rd.

The program will discuss topics such as the spending culture, resource manage­ment, factors that influ­ence spending, money personalities and how to control spending. Refresh­ments and workbooks will be provided.

Bettina Pearch, debt counselor for GreenPath Debt Solutions in Monroe, will be the presenter. The session is intended to be infor­mative for the general public as well as those who are rebuilding credit and getting out of debt.

“Because too much spending can lead to debt problems, understanding the psychology of spend­ing can be helpful for many consumers,” said Jennifer Tucker, MBT mar­keting officer. “Through this free workshop, we help our community understand how to man­age the external factors that influence our buying behavior.”

The session is meant to help people overcome the urge to splurge, help them manage their resources, control spending and overcome the forces that prompt spending.

Refreshments will be served.

For more information on the workshop or to reserve a spot, call Ms. Tucker at 384-8269.
