When I was in my early 20s, I knew how to live on $1,000 a month, which I now find really impressive. I drove a Honda that I purchased for $500, I had no health insurance, and I lived in a converted motel room.

Oddly, I had decided to save any extra freelance money I earned, and I ended up with around six months of security savings, which I deposited in a savings account.

Since that time, I’ve done absolutely nothing with it, and I’m starting to realize that it’s high time I learn about investing. I’m the perfect candidate for Saturday’s Investor Education in Your Community class, a free workshop at the Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library in Broomfield, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The class covers where to invest in today’s economic climate and includes a lecture, a question-and-answer period, and a guided workshop. Though the workshop is free, organizers ask that you reserve a space by calling 720-887-2350 or e-mailing library@broomfield.org.
