Last year… right around this time… my husband Chris and I got this wild idea to start looking at houses in our hometown of Sheboygan Falls. By no means did we think we were anywhere near being able to purchase our own home but it was fun to look online and see photos of homes we “might be able to afford to someday.” While I was looking for a home with an open concept, walk-in closets and a safe location close to family… Chris was looking for a home with a decent sized garage, land in the country and a bit of a fixer-upper that, in time, he could make our own.
Every year, millions of people set goals and resolutions to become more fit. Many of these aspirations have to do with losing weight, eating better, or just becoming a healthier person in general. This year, Kohler Credit Union is paving the way for people like you to become fit… when it comes to your finances and financial decisions. We are proud to introduce our Financial Fitness series of blog posts… aimed to help others manage their finances, borrow smarter, grow their money and protect their future. Below you will find the first guest blog post of this series which focuses on the differences between a credit union and a bank.
Ever since I can remember, the last two months of the year have always been my favorite. Celebrating with family, eating delicious home cooked meals until you’re about to explode, decorations hung from every place imaginable and of course… the loads of presents both given and received! During those last 60 days of the year, it feels like everyone is full of all sorts of happiness, including me… until of course… I add up the receipts and look at my account balances and see how much I spent!
