We’re long past signs of a recession and deeply involved in one, so if you’re feeling a little lost and in need of some advice, hit up the workshops offered during Colorado Money Smart Week. Banking, finance, loans, and savings–turn all the negative connotations into manageable skills after participating in talks like “Financial Planning for Life” and “Financial Literacy.” The schedule has something for everyone, from adults and Spanish speakers to kids and seniors–even recent college graduates worried about how to pay back their school loans while working long hours for bottom-of-the-barrel pay. Sat-Sat, Apr. 18-25, times vary. Statewide, locations vary. Free, official website
