BOISE -- Looking for a crash course in personal finance amid the economic crash?
The University of Idaho Extension Service is offering research-based instruction on financial basics, credit and debt, and ways to live better while spending less.
The extension's new Web site, , was created by family economics specialists and educators.
Marilyn Bischoff, University of Idaho Extension family economics specialist, says her organization teaches a variety of personal finance classes -- but not everyone has time to attend.
As the economy in Idaho stagnates and signs of recovery remain agonizingly faint, Bischoff says people can use the new Web site to help make changes in their spending and saving habits -- to ride out the malaise until better times arrive.
