MyMoola: B is for Budget  by Tara

September9

Tara shows you how to set up spending targets using the tags that you’ve created for your transactions.

The “B” word. It makes cringe. It makes us sweaty. It makes us think of all the ways we’ve gone wrong in the past. That B-word sure is powerful. But, friends, it is time to take the power BACK from this terrible B-word! MyMoola has helped me do it, and it can help you, too. You can set up a budget for any tags that you’ve created. (Not sure how to tag? Click here!)

In this video, Tara shows you how to set up spending targets using the tags that you’ve created for your transactions:

Let’s say it together: Budget. Budget. BUDGET!!!

Empowering, isn’t it?

MyMoola: Tag! You’re it!  by Tara

When you first start using MyMoola, the thought of tagging all those transactions can feel a little overwhelming. Okay, A LOT overwhelming. We want to show you how super EASY and lightening FAST it really is! And even more than that, putting in a good 15 or 30 minutes of work to tag your transactions now will save you a ton of time in the future if you create rules. I suggest going back 30 to 60 days the first time.

Tara will walk you through this process and show you a few work arounds:

MyMoola: Dashboard  by Tara

November7

We are beyond excited to introduce the newest addition to our suite (or should we say “SWEET!”) of products and services… MyMoola!!!

Many of our members have asked for a personal financial management system, similar to Mint.com. We heard you loud and clear! Our answer is this colorful, user-friendly site that is completely integrated with the eBranch you know and love. All of your Linn Area accounts will automatically be added in, but then you can add ANY of your financial accounts. When we say ANY, we mean it. So if you have an account at another credit union or, say, a big bank, you can still add it to MyMoola. You can add credit cards of any kind (even store ones!), retirement funds, loans, and even 529s! Using MyMoola will help you save time, achieve your goals, track spending, and, overall, manage all your bling.

In this video, you’ll get a quick tour of the Dashboard (as they say on HGTV, “Where the magic happens!”), teach you how to add accounts, and how to edit your existing accounts:

We want to know: Have you tried out MyMoola yet?!?! What’s your favorite feature?
