Financial Clutter

Recently, we were talking to the president of a Catholic Credit Union who mentioned the term “Financial Clutter” as all those things that get people off track with their finances.

Maybe it’s doing something you should NOT be doing or maybe it’s NOT doing something you should be doing.  Financial clutter is whatever gets us off track from being a good steward of God’s blessings. Join us for a lively discussion on financial clutter.

The Compass Catholic blog has more on how to find and eliminate the financial clutter in your life.

The Compass Catholic blog has more on defining financial success for yourself.

Congratulations on your engagement

There are lots of things to think about and plan for as you approach your wedding day. Unfortunately, most couples who are engaged to be married talk more about the flavor of their wedding cake than about their marital finances. The cake cutting ceremony takes about 10 minutes but finances are something they’ll deal with every day of their entire married life.

The Compass Catholic blog has more about why the “Money Talk” is so important to a strong healthy marriage.
