Frugal Living,  Money Matters


Have you ever wished you could have a financial guru walk you through your finances for a year? Well, you kind of have your wish! Gail Vaz-Oxlade is hosting a FREE–yes free!–class on Twitter for the year 2020.

If you are not familliar with Gail, she is well known for the TV shows she’s hosted such as Till Debt Do Us Part and Money Moron. She’s written multiple books on finances and has contributed articles to various publications. Now she’s taken Twitter by storm with her no-nonsense opinions and also, for 2020, her #MoneyMasterClass.

Details on the class have been few and far between, but we know it starts January 1st. This is an opportunity to focus on your finances with some guidance from a woman who knows her stuff. As a bonus, you’ve got a community on Twitter who will be journeying through this with you and will hopefully be that extra motivation to stick with it.

Below are some items you’ll need to have on hand to participate in the class.

  • 5 jars (one with a lid), plus 4 for each child
  • 2 highlighters in your favourite colours
  • 2 notebooks
  • construction paper or recycled wrapping paper
  • 500 of something (macaroni, beads, buttons, beans…anything really)
  • month at glance calendar
  • a pretty box to put it all in

You’ll also want to follow Gail on Twitter here and also keep an eye on the hashtag #MoneyMasterClass.

While the class is free, Gail is asking people to show their appreciation by donating to a local woman’s shelter.
