"Healthy Money Habits" is the topic of a five-week challenge sponsored by the University of Idaho Extension Service. Twice a week for five weeks, participants will receive an e-mail with links to resources and tips for achieving a healthy financial lifestyle. To sign up, send an e-mail with the words “Register for HMH” in the subject line to: erickson@uidaho.edu.

This is a non‐meeting format so you can work on your financial health in your own way and at your own time. The instructor, Luke Erickson, will also be responding personally to topic questions or concerns by e-mail and Facebook.
