Extension office can help you manage money

UF/IFAS, the Franklin County Extension Office and the United Way of the Big Bend wish to make the Money Management Calendar available free of charge while supplies last. Good money management is a habit and an everyday task, especially if you need to stick to a plan to make ends meet. A plan begins with knowing what you need and want and then setting up a plan to meet your goals.

This calendar can help you see where your dollars are going day by day and then allow you to take steps to get a better handle on your spending habits. It takes tools and discipline to build a budget and to know where you monies go. This calendar is a wonderful first step.

In the future, the county extension office will offer classes related to many aspects of financial management and can offer one-on-one assistance with organizing personal finances. Please watch for further details on the opportunities by getting on the Extension contact list. Stop by the historic Coombs Armory in Apalachicola to obtain a calendar and get started with planning your financial future.

For more information concerning programming and services available through the extension office, visit or call 653-9337.
