Since its creation in March 2010, Pinterest has served as a source of inspiration for DIY enthusiasts around the world. With millions of gorgeous photos featuring home-décor innovations, recipe creations, and crafting ideas, the social media service has helped revolutionize many a home interior. Over time, however, an unintended—yet wildly entertaining—phenomenon surfaced: The Pinterest Fail.
When you browse a gallery of Pinterest Fails, you see the difference between theory and application. Knowing how to do something doesn’t necessarily mean you have the right tools to complete the project. While some of the results range from aesthetically tragic to downright hilarious, they each highlight the fact that head knowledge isn’t enough. Using the proper tools can make all the difference. In much the same way, following a budget is a simple concept. But without the right tools to keep you on track, you can experience a financial version of a Pinterest Fail.
Money Management™ Gives You the Budgeting Tools You Need.
By adding the Money Management feature to our already impressive list of online and mobile banking features, Power Financial Credit Union makes it easier for you to follow your budget. While it’s still up to you to manage your income and expenses, this convenient new service provides consistent guidance and feedback that lets you know when you’re doing well and when you need to adjust. To keep the task from being too overwhelming, Money Management breaks down your support into four customizable categories:
It’s tough to budget effectively if you don’t know where your money is going. Tag specific transactions, track your spending habits, and establish a cash-flow calendar based on the results.
After tracking your spending, this feature helps you make real-time budget adjustments based on your history. From there, it helps analyze your finances to set various financial goals such as debt payoff and net worth projections.
As the adage goes, “if you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time.” Money Management offers helpful methods for setting important financial goals including savings, debt reduction, and retirement.
Life can get busy, and that makes it easy to forget about your goals. Thanks to online and mobile technology, you can establish custom text and email alerts to keep your financial success in focus.
While our Money Management solution provides a variety of financial tools to help you stick to your budget, the best part is that it’s FREE for all Power Financial Credit Union members!
