Do you want to save money, get your finances under control? Then CAP Money is right for you. In just three, two hour sessions, you will draw up your own budget and learn a money management system to help you stick to it. The payoff, the benefit to you, is that you learn to control your money rather than have money control you (debt = stress).
What is CAP Money?
CAP Money was devised by the debt counselling charity, Christians Against Poverty and is a revolutionary money management course that teaches people budgeting skills involving a simple, cash based system that works.
This course will help anyone create an effective current budget with an ongoing facility to adjust and update future budgets to prevent the ever present danger of falling into debt.
What CAP Money Teaches
CAP Money is a three session course that includes DVD presentations, discussions covering many different budgeting ideas and individual guidance from a money coach. During the course, participants learn about three principles:
> How to build and live on a budget. This is the cornerstone of managing your money well. This session includes advice on how to increase your income and how to cut your costs.
> The CAP Money system. This system will help you simplify your money and make it understandable. It operates using three accounts for your money: a regular payments account, a cash account and a savings account.
> How to live from week to week using cash. Living on cash and getting away from cards means you know exactly where you are and helps you to spend less money. It is statistically proven that we spend 33% less money when we pay by cash rather than cards.
By applying these three principles, you will learn how to manage your money well.
After each session, CAP Money Coaches are available to help you build your budget and answer your questions.
What to Expect
CAP Money is run in hundreds of locations throughout Australia by churches that partner with Christians Against Poverty. The course usually runs over three consecutive weeks.
What is the Cost?
The CAP Money course is FREE. Free means free as in no financial cost to you. There are no catches, no pyramid schemes and no ongoing commitment from you.
The course is free because our church wishes to be a blessing to our local community of Melton. We want to see the families of Melton not held captive to poverty due to debt and bad money management.
The only cost to you is to have the discipline to show up to each of the three sessions, do the homework between the sessions, and make simple lifestyle changes in how you manage your money.
