Too often, it feels as if you cannot possibly have a baby and still save money at the same time. However, this does not have to be true. There are ways to save money with a baby that will let you experience the best of both worlds and help you support your growing family well into the future. Save more with coupons Start planning well before the baby arrives. Look out for special offers, free samples, and money off coupons and online offers.

Buying furniture is a big expense for anyone, especially if you are forming a new household and hardly have anything. So any way you can save on furniture will help keep your budget in check. Before you buy your next piece of furniture, read our 5 tips to save on furniture. Buy Your Furniture Online Instead Whenever you buy from a physical store, you are paying for all the costs involved. Sure, you get to actually touch and see the furniture you want to buy. But if you are willing to forgo that luxury, the savings add-up. Most online stores ship from a warehouse or directly from the factory, so you won’t be paying for the costs of a physical store like overhead, salespeople, rent and more! Make Sure You Look at the Shipping Costs When people shop for furniture, they often forget to look at the delivery price. Make sure you examine the all-in price or ask for the delivery fee at any store before you shop.  Otherwise, you could be paying $150 or more than what you bargained for.

A Personalized Memento Embellish or hand paint a picture frame, insert your favorite photo, and give it as a personalized memento. Turn favorite photos or vacation souvenirs into personalized wall art or a scrap book.

A Plant Local florists and grocery stores have a variety of house plants that make great inexpensive Christmas gift ideas.

Have you heard the old saying, “You don’t know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been”? If so, then maybe you’ll relate to the picture we think of when we talk about creating a monthly budget. After all, if you don’t know where you’re already spending your money, you don’t really know how you can prepare to save money in the future. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you along the way: • Don’t Be Afraid of Your Numbers. Sure, debt can be scary. And even scarier can be the math that results from adding up all of your debt and trying to figure out how to pay it. Don’t be afraid! The sooner you’re willing to own up to your numbers, the sooner you can put a plan into place to help you better manage the bills that are coming into your household. When you start creating a monthly budget, use a simple pen and paper to write down what you think you’re spending. This will give you a great outline to build from. • Utilize Online Banking. Even if you’re not comfortable paying your bills through online bill pay, online banking can be a great resource to help you reconcile your expenditures. Go online daily to see what’s cleared and what’s pending. Keep in mind that any checks that you’ve written, gratuities at restaurants, and payments at gas pumps are not always going to be accurately reflected in this total. You should use…

When considering a cash advance, you may be wondering “Does a cash advance hurt your credit score?” For better or worse, it is true that taking a cash advance can hurt your credit score. Thankfully, a cash advance can also help your credit score. Understanding reporting practices and responsible use of credit can help you avoid lowering your credit score and possibly even help raise it.   Using Northcash Will Not Affect Your Credit Score   Most consumers know that having multiple inquiries into your credit score can cause your score to drop. What fewer consumers know is that your credit score is typically only affected if the credit check is performed by one of the three main credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, or TransUnion). While most borrowers do not require a credit score check, Northcash uses alternatives to the three main credit bureaus to check borrower credit. These agencies typically do not cause a drop in credit for the borrower. Simply taking out a cash advance should not affect your credit score when using Northcash.   Be a Good Borrower   Does a cash advance hurt your credit score? Well, it can, but borrowers who use cash advances for short term expenses find that they can actually help build credit and learn about responsible borrowing. In many situations, an early bill due date or an unexpected expense can leave families cash poor for just a few days before payday. Taking out a cash advance with the intention of simply paying…
