April is a busy, busy month! It’s also Financial Literacy Month.  We are so focused on the excitement of receiving a tax refund but this is not a gift–it’s your hard earned money that you can get throughout the year.  Take a moment to review your finances this time of year.  Have you been able to put something away for savings?  How about open savings accounts for your children?  Small changes now will make a big difference later.  Looking for a free financial workshop?  Check out Money Smart Week which is hosting lots of free financial information throughout the city and neighboring suburbs.
