Bi-Weekly Blues

Do you get paid every two weeks? Once or twice a month? I don't know about you but it seems like feast or famine not receiving a deposit every week. I remember all too well making the transition from a weekly paycheck to one every other week. Week one = gas, groceries, out to dinner, bills and maybe a little pampering. Then, week two = pinching pennies, eating spaghetti and bagged lunches, and reminding myself that I will make it to the next pay day. I was fortunate enough to receive awesome advice on.... (wait for it)....BUDGETING. You might be thinking,...

The Machine that Gives Mommy Money

As a mother to two preschool aged children, I am always on the lookout for those great teachable moments. Teaching them their manners, treating others with respect and the difference between right and wrong certainly top the list. But another important teachable moment that I sometimes forget that is just as equally important is the lesson about money. Just the other day, my 5 year old and I passed the ice cream shop in my hometown. It is the local summer hotspot and the line was super long. As we drove by, the shop’s bright colors immediately caught his attention and...

Shedding Pounds and Saving Money

Many of us struggle with our weight. Some stress over 5 pounds, while others have a bit more to deal with, myself included.

But, did you know that if you eliminate soda from your diet for...

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. I love living where everyone knows you or at least knows someone who knows you. "How's your mom and them?" can be heard almost daily. A stranger can become a friend in the checkout line. Having lived away from southeast Louisiana for a few years, I can assure you that we live in the...
