Have you ever wanted to save your money but found it too difficult to overcome temptation or too difficult to keep yourself from spending? When it comes to setting money aside, it’s important to know what your savings roadblocks and motivations are. In fact, Ted Klontz, a financial psychologist notes that only between 14% and 17% of us are natural savers, the rest just are not wired that way. Learning about various savings strategies and how to maintain your Financial Well Being (FWB) will pay off in the long run by helping you to identify what encourages you to spend and save, as well as how to be mindful of these motivations so that you do not spend unnecessarily. This can help you to save whatever money you can stop yourself from spending.

Join us for this Introduction to the Psychology of Saving, webinar (online workshop) which offers valuable information about strategies to help you meet your saving goals.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to assess your Financial Well-Being (FWB) levels
  • How having savings can increase your Financial Well-Being
  • How to create savings goals that you can achieve
  • What your money values and savings roadblocks are
  • At least 5 different strategies to keep you committed to your savings goal!

A newfound sense of awareness into the psychology of saving can allow participants to become informed savers who are less likely to spend their hard-earned money and make the act of saving become an unconscious habit.

This interactive and fun webinar will last 1-hour in a webinar format. We take a “grab and go” approach: grab an idea or two and go try it. All participants will walk away with ideas, resources, and the full curriculum upon request. 


This workshop is conducted by the Credit Counseling Society of BC.

  1. Internet connection - For best results, you will want to ensure you have an internet connection with an upload/download speed of 3-5 Mbps. You can test your internet speed here. Minimum recommended speed is 1.5 Mbps, but anything below 3 Mbps may result in loss of quality or buffering. Ideally hardwired connection versus wireless for stability - connect your computer directly to your router using an ethernet cable, rather than using your home wi-fi.
