Hack Your Budget with Dr. Emily Roberts of Personal Finance for PhDs

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 shows attendees how to “hack” their budgets by decreasing their spending in key necessary areas and implementing strategies to make their budgets more effective. Attendees submit their spending data on housing and utilities, transportation, and food in advance through a survey. 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.
