Holidays: Merry, Jolly, & Doggone EXPENSIVE!  by Tara

November14

Christmas savings piggyGive us a fuzzy red suit and call us Santa ’cause MyMoola is going to be quite the gift for your bank account this holiday season! No thank you note will be necessary.

Throughout the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, sometimes we give and give and give and, well, GIVE. You are just so thoughtful! MyMoola is the perfect tool to make sure your “giving” stays in check. (Not using MyMoola yet? Just go into eBranch and click on the MyMoola tab to get started!)

Here is a simple two step process to make your own Christmas miracle happen:

1) Use the tagging feature to label any holiday purchase accordingly (“Gift”, “For the Rugrats”, “Christmas”, whatever you want!). Don’t forget that you can now use split tagging to add as many tags as you want, so continue keep track of the Groceries, Clothes, etc. in your purchase, too!

2) Set up a Spending Target (a.k.a. budget) using the tag you decided on above. This will allow you to see at a glance how much you’ve spent on the holidays!
