About Us

Simple Organized Savings is an organization that offers simplified educational classes on a variety of different life skills. Classes are taught in a hands-on, practical way that engages the student. We do not believe we were designed to do life alone and through our classes and mentorship programs we are able to equip students with the tools and resources they need to be successful.

SOS offers a variety of classes starting with foundational classes on time management as well as classes on meal planning, cooking and freezing, and basic finance courses to name a few. (Please see our class menu tab for a complete list of classes) SOS also has the unique ability to work directly with organizations/companies/schools to customize classes to fit our clients’ needs. For example, were are currently working with a local food pantry to offer a class on how to effectively use your SNAP money at the grocery store and local farmers market. Students will learn how to stretch their SNAP money and prepare the fresh food they buy with their SNAP dollars. Working with many professionals in our community enables us to create classes on almost any topic needed.

Since the founding of Simple Organized Savings in 2009 we have partnered with Healthy Living Alliance, Farmers Market of the Ozarks, Springfield Public Schools, Food Core, YMCA, Weller Elementary, Roberson Elementary, The Springfield Library, and 88.3 The Wind among others.

We firmly believe in investing in the community of people we are “doing life” with. We have seen first hand the successful results of those who participate in our classes. I would like to invite you to check out our testimony page. We would love to partner with you on your educational needs.
