Money Matters

#MoneyMasterClass Recap-Week 42

This week Gail focused on some daily questions related to finances:

– Have you found a way to give back?
– Does your budget balance?
– Do you go into overdraft?

Giving Back

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Gail has focused a lot on gratitude and giving back this year. And there’s good reason as there’s even some science behind the benefits of giving back.

Giving back doesn’t always have to be financial. You can always donate your time or other resources to help others.

How long until you’re debt free?

Gail walked through calculating your debt repayment schedule in Week 37.

Balanced Budget

Gail led us through creating a budget in Week 38 and gave tips on what to do if your budget doesn’t balance in Week 39.


Overdraft can feel convenient and necessary at times, but if there’s a way to stop using it, it’s a good idea to.
