4 Tips for a More Merry, Stress-Free Holiday Shopping Season

The holiday season is a time for festivities, cheer, and reunions with family and friends. But as we deck the halls or spin the dreidel, many of us will have something else on our mind: money.

While it may seem like a fact of life, going into gift-purchase debt is not inevitable. In today’s post, we’ll offer four key tips to stress-free holiday spending, allowing you to devote yourself to some worry-free celebrating.

Preparing for the Holidays

Before you know it, the winter holidays will be here! And with it comes joy, family time, and often, money worries and stress.

One way to help avoid that last part is something you may have heard often: develop a budget. Seems simple, but many people don’t do that, and it often leads to overspending, debt, and financial stress.

How to set New Year’s Goals That Will Last

Marketing Coordinator
Let me start off this post by asking you to think about your New Year’s resolution from last year. Go ahead, I’ll wait… I won’t ask you what it was, but what I would like to know is: did you keep that resolution? If not, try doing things a bit differently this New Year.

6 Ways to Manage Your Heating Bill

Greater Nevada Credit Union
Between paying for all the food and drinks for a Thanksgiving feast, Christmas gifts for family and friends, and holiday trips, it’s hard to think about saving money over the next few months.  And as a recent transplant from Southern California, I also haven’t really thought much about what my heating bill will be like in northern Nevada. (I was more focused on the beautiful, snowy winter I’d enjoy!)

Luckily good old dad shared some advice with me and in turn, I would like to share it with you, since saving is never easy and we could all use a helpful tip once in a while.

Budget Friendly Halloween Costumes Done in a Pinch

Greater Nevada Credit Union
Flash forward to tomorrow afternoon, your phone rings and great news, you’re invited to a Halloween party! But wait, you don’t have a costume, it’s the day before, and if you’re like me, spending $60+ dollars for a once-a-year outfit really isn’t fun...sigh. This happens to me just about every year on Halloween and I thus have two options to debate, sit on the couch trying to find anything other than an old horror movie to watch or go out with friends and probably have a good time.  I know you’re thinking that to enjoy Halloween you need to have some brilliant disguise but trust me, your friends won’t care as long as you go! So suck it up, take my advice and you will have a great time and an easy costume that won’t break the bank.
