February is the shortest month of the year but for us in the Financial Literacy Program team it is our busiest month! We have been tabling at Campus Center weekly to answer any questions you may have about filling out your FAFSA, helping other students to prepare their income taxes for free, recruiting for our 2014-2015 Financial Literacy Peer Educators, preparing for our Valentine’s Day Condom Fair and finalizing our 5th Annual UH Saves Day Exhibition and LifeSmarts Game Show Competition. If that wasn’t enough we have been working hard to make sure our February newsletter is packed full with our event details and tips on a meaningful but low-budget Valentine day for you and your friends or sweetheart. We hope you enjoy!
Gift giving during the holiday season is a great way to let others know you care about them. But you don’t have to break the bank and go into debt to ensure that everyone you love and appreciate receives a gift from you. Here are a few of the inexpensive DIY holiday gifts that we made with things found in our homes.
While the the average American is expected to spend $75 per person on Halloween 2013, it doesn’t have to be so expensive if you follow our helpful tips. In our newsletter we gave you some creative ideas for inexpensive costumes and here we have some inexpensive but yummy Halloween treats for you.
American Savings Bank in partnership with the University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHM) Financial Literacy Program will be holding a free workshop titled, “Money $mart Credit Workshop.” The workshop is designed to help participants learn the basics of credit, healthy credit card management and building or re-establishing credit. The interactive workshop will feature a Q&A session where participants can have their personal questions and concerns addressed by the bankers.
As an added bonus find out your zodiac sign’s preferences towards the type and way you deal with credit and credit cards. A purely unscientific but fun way to explore your own money management habits.
These workshops are strictly educational and are not for the generation of sales.Thursday, October 17th, 2013 4:30pm – 6:00pm Campus Center 307
