Money Smart Week® (MSW) is a series of free classes and activities designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. MSW events will be held in April 17–24, 2010 in Illinois. There are many different activities for the week, but I wanted to focus on one – SHREDDING! We have a lot of people come into our office talking about all the papers and files they need to shred, but either never get around to it or they don’t have a shredding machine. Well, next week you will have three opportunities to have your papers shredded for free! Yes, I said FREE. Everyone loves that word, so here are the times and locations for the places to shred:
