While perusing my daily e-mails, I ran across this article. Apparently, Consumer Credit Counseling is offering free workshops in the Eureka, California area this Thursday (July 17th).
For one, this started me thinking that I might attend were I in the area, or if they had one locally. But, on the other hand, I’ve got a handle on my budget – I know where I’m spending money, and I know how my total debt picture is looking, so I wonder what good it would do to attend one of those.
Has anyone been through their program? What are the ups and downs of it? Is the free seminar worth the time? Or is it one of those “free” seminars where they try to convince you to buy into the system?
