Keep The Change

Now, more than ever, is a good time to practice saving. Why? Well, because things are becoming more and more expensive! Here are a few suggestions to help you practice good habits and save for the things you really want. Get on a budget. It’s just as simple as that. Budget your finances according to what you make.

TRUE LIFE: I clip coupons.

I clip coupons. All the coupons. Some would say I’m the resident Credit Union Coupon Queen! So why do I clip? Well, life is expensive and I’m always trying to save money no matter where I go.

"Mommy, can I have that?"

“Mommy, can I have that?” “Mommy, I really want these for a snack!” Comments like these are constant when I bring my two children to the grocery store with me. Sometimes, I feel like a broken record player when I repeat the word, “no” after every request and dread our trips together.  Of course, it never fails: the automatic response from my six year old followed by “the look” in his puppy dog eyes, “Why not, Mommy?” If you are like me and become a sack of mush when those eyes of your small child look at you, then really, what...

ASK THE EXPERT by Linda Boe

Q: Is it too late to refinance my home? A: If you haven’t refinanced in the last couple of years, then you definitely still have time to refinance and save big. With current interest rates on a 10, 15, 20 and 30 year term mortgage ranging between 3.25% – 4.75%, you stand to save thousands of dollars in interest and possibly lower your term. Let’s say you financed your $200,000 home for 30 years at 5.25%, and your balance is currently $175,000. You could refinance it for 20 years at 4.25% and reduce your payment by $20.75. The real kicker is...
