Financial planning can be a pain. You can go old school and break out the pen and paper. Or you can use any number of online tools available for figuring out your budget. I settled on the latter today, and spent a good bit of time trying to find the tools I needed to get a complete picture of our finances. That is, until I found out that a local Alabama credit union had everything I could possibly need in one convenient location!
I wasn’t just looking for a budgeting tool. I wanted to get detailed and take a look at things like retirement planning and calculating an appropriate emergency fund to cover our expenses should something out of the ordinary occur. When I find something useful like this, I normally share it. Especially when there’s 400 different financial tools on one convenient page!
