Simple Organized Savings

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. They believe we were designed to do life together, not alone; therefore, through the classes and mentorship programs they 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. SOS also has the unique ability to work directly with organizations, companies, and schools to customize classes to fit their clients’ needs. For example, they 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 them to create classes on almost any topic needed.
Since the founding of Simple Organized Savings in 2009 they 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.
SOS firmly believes in investing in the community of people we are “doing life” with. They have seen first-hand the successful results of those who participate in their classes. They invite you to check out their testimony page.
