CINCINNATI, OH – Procter & Gamble’s Tide brand is teaming up with journalist Maria Antonieta Collins and national organization “Las Comadres to bring them the Tide “Mas Valor por tu Dinero” Home Economics Seminars. It is estimated that 31 percent of Hispanics have more expenses than income every month, according to Buenhogar Magazine.

The free seminars will give attending women the information and resources to get more value for their money, with tips from how to put together a practical budget to how to save time and money when doing laundry and buying groceries.

“Based on my experience, which I have shared in one of my books, I understand firsthand the importance of proper budget management and learning to live within our means, and I am thrilled to be working with Tide to share this knowledge with Hispanic women across the country,” said Collins.

“We are all going through difficult times and it is imperative to learn to better manage both our time and money so we can get the most value as well as achieve and maintain financial stability and a good quality of life,” added Collins.

Open to the public, the seminars will be taking place starting January through June in the following Hispanic dense cities:

—  Miami: January 27, Miami Dade College
