Make your money go farther with a budget


Do you ever wonder where all your money goes? Well, getting on the right budget can go a long way. Scott Dobson from Consumers Credit Union is here to show us the ins and outs of money management. 

Begin by tracking your spending, then organize your expenses into categories and balance your income against your expenses. There are a number of calculators and tools online, including at, that can help assist you in this. 

They also have a great new widget in our Online Banking platform called Money Management that is free for members to use. It lets you see all your financial accounts in one place and has a variety of visual graphs and maps to help you see where you are spending.
