Today kicked off the 4th annual Money Smart Week® Wisconsinand will continue until Saturday, October 17th. For those who are not familiar, Money Smart Week is a series of more than 200 free educational classes, seminars and activities designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances.

"Money is the best deodorant." - Actress Elizabeth Taylor

It's a shame that money doesn't come with an instruction manual because we all need to know how to spend it, save it and borrow it wisely. That's why the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago has collaborated with financial institutions, not-for-profits, schools, libraries and a host of others to support financial education in Indiana.

If you or someone you love lives in Wisconsin, check out the complete calendar of events scheduled.

Glad they are doing this in your state.  There just are not enough programs to help with everyday financial literacy.  There are some organizations in our state reaching out to various schools to provide day-to-day financial literacy skills.

Charles - To be honest, there is not enough education on the fiscal literacy side here in Northwest Indiana either. I make it a point for our team to seek out speaking opportunities within our region to add value such as these classes to better empower our community and our clients.
