The Credit Union Top Golden Tips for Managing Your Money in 2014 are:


Keep track of your spending. Keep your receipts or take note of what you spend your money on. It will help you understand where your money is going and it might just be an eye opener.


Estimate your income and expenditure for a set period and budget accordingly. But be realistic and donít underestimate!


Get into the habit of saving. Try to save at least 5% of your regular income for emergencies.

Be Prudent

Shop around and get the best deals and look at cost comparison websites.


There are times in our lives when we run short of funds. If you have to take out a loan, be sure you only borrow what you can comfortably afford to repay. You should match the repayment term to the purpose of the loan i.e. donít make the mistake of paying off Christmas over a number of years. Best advice is to stay away from credit cards and not to use MoneyLenders.
