Start your budgeting resolutions off with a bang

A month into 2015, many goal-setters are probably realizing that the most challenging part of any resolution is just getting started.

Taking a simple approach is sometimes all that is needed to get the ball rolling. And Dupaco Community Credit Union has several tools to start tackling one of the most popular resolutions – becoming more financially fit.

“It can be daunting to try figuring out where to start, because everybody has a different situation, challenge and budget,” said Tami Rechtenbach, vice president of member services at Dupaco. “If you try to bite off more than you can chew, you may never go back. You want to set yourself up to succeed, so turn to the experts who can help guide you through the process.”

Here are three ways Dupaco can help you feel less intimidated about working toward a brighter financial future:

  1. Money Makeover: Work one-on-one with a Dupaco expert to look at your total financial picture. Review your budget, and learn ways you can cut costs and build savings. 
  2. Credit History Lesson: Learn what makes up a credit score, and find out how you can drive up your score to pay lower interest rates in the future. 
  3. Long-term savings: It’s not too late to make contributions to an IRA for 2014. Qualified individuals can contribute up to $5,500 for the 2014 tax year until April 15, 2015.
