Resources for Planning for Large Purchases

As you're crunching the numbers for your new vehicle purchase, you might find yourself wishing you had done this budget exercise earlier. But don't worry - taking steps now for your next large expense or purchase is all it takes to build a little bit more confidence in your financial future.

Plan and Stick to a Budget - one of the easiest steps you can take to plan for your next large purchase after an auto loan is to plan a budget - and stick to it as much as possible. If you prefer writing things out, we have printable budget worksheets, or if you lean more toward digital tools, our Money Manager program is available for all personal online banking and mobile app users. You can set up your budgets and establish alerts so you're notified anytime you're near a spending threshold or close to a savings goal.

Know the Best Borrowing Options - if you are a home owner, sometimes a home equity line of credit or home equity loan can be a good way to pay for large purchases or unexpected expenses. In fact, many people have a home equity line of credit just in case there are emergencies - the line of credit provides them quick access to cash. It all depends on your financial situation and what's best for you in the long term, so we'd love to connect with you to learn more.
