Why You Should Have an Emergency Savings Fund

Saving money is something that is very important to me. Even though I am only twenty years old, I have been through a few sticky situations in life that have made me so grateful that I was taught how to save. I don't have any human children, but I do have a furry, four-legged baby named Kali. She is my responsibility so when she gets sick, I take care of her. Around this time last year, we found out that she was hypoglycemic. It took many tests and overnight stays to figure it out. I don't have pet insurance so when...

I wonder what they would call a reality show based on the life of the Louisiana FCU family?

Have you seen Swamp People, Duck Dynasty, Cajun Pawn Stars, Bayou Billionaires, Redneck Vacation, or Buying the Bayou? All of these reality shows display what Louisiana living is all about. Although some scenes push the stereotypes, they also show the down home family oriented aspect of our area.

Safe Travels

Ahhhh vacation... many of us need one but rarely do we take one. When we do take a break, financial safety may be far from our minds. Planning, packing and affordability are on the forefront but do we ever consider the financial security of our trips? Should you get traveler's checks? Will my credit or debit card be accepted at merchants in different states or even different countries? Should I pay for everything with cash? These questions should be important when making our travel plans. When my grandfather would prepare for a trip the one thing he would do before he...

Get to Your Financial Destination with Your GPS

I am not sure about you, but I know that I have wasted more money on improper spending habits than I even care to think about. Once I thought about it, I gave the GPS plan a try. As Americans, we waste 20-30% of our hard earned money on bad spending habits. Proper planning could help you to reach your financial destination of paying off debts faster. Think of it this way. When you go on a road trip, you don’t just start driving. You first decide on a destination, and sometimes, if you are not certain of the path you are...
