Live Well
Below your means

Hi Everyone,

The other day I was tired and not too inspired to cook dinner.  I made this creation and it turned out great.  And it’s super simple to make.  All you need is a slice of bread, two eggs, some cholula sauce and half an avocado.  Toast the bread, crack and mix the eggs with enough cholula sauce to give them a pink tint, scramble the eggs, put them on the toast and put the half avocado on top.  That’s it, so simple, so yummy.

Personal finance can be just as simple as this open-faced sandwich.  Successful personal finance revolves around some pretty simple rules.  Are you consistently saving every month?  If you have debt do you have a plan to extinguish that debt as soon as you possibly can?  Are you buying treasures that you really don’t need?  Maybe the money you’re using to buy these treasures could be better spent extinguishing that debt.  If your employer has a tax advantaged retirement savings program, are you using it to the fullest extent?  These are very simple questions but if you answer them in the right way they can lead to successful personal finance.  Here at the credit union we can be of assistance to you in reaching your financial goals.  Give us a call and we’ll help you figure out a way to get rid of that burdensome debt and start a savings program.  It can be as easy as making a yummy egg and avocado sandwich. 

Till Next Time,
