Free Budget Workshop

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?

  1. Hmm wow free is good. I've been thinking of going to a Consumer Credit Counseling agency near me to get help with an ugly collection agency problem but haven't yet as I'm busy dealing with some short term debt first. I feel like if you have time and interest enough to attend it may be worth it. Even if you only learn one thing, it's one more tool in your toolbox, you know?
