When it comes to balancing their budgets, grad students and postdocs usually try to pack as much value into as little spending as possible. This immensely practical workshop will show you how to “hack” your budget by decreasing spending in key necessary areas and implementing tricks to make your budget more effective. Attendees submit their spending data on housing, utilities, transportation, and food in advance through a survey, which will be emailed with the registration confirmation. The first part of the workshop is a presentation and discussion on this crowdsourced data, during which attendees share with one another their strategies and insights. The second part of the workshop is a short presentation of effective budgeting strategies to speed progress toward financial goals.
