Whether that means high tuition, or just getting the basics--books, binders, and clothes--the cost of making sure our kids are prepared for a year of academic rigor send shivers down our spine.

Best SUVs for Road Trips

With summer in full swing, there are few things we love more than the opportunity to punch out, zone out, and hit the open road with our best buds (be they human or canine), an old-timey road map (you know--the big pieces of paper with pictures of states and cities on them with lines and bright dots), and enjoy the wonders of the off-beaten path.

Figuring Out If You Need a New Car

Deciding on how and when to purchase a car—whether new or used—is a big decision, and likely one of the larger financial expenditures you’ll make in any given year. Each person (or family) has different needs, budgets, wants, and credit scores that will inevitably impact what sort of vehicle they end up purchasing. But before the conversation of buying even starts, you need to consider why you’re even considering this big financial responsibility.

Wisconsin Summer Fun "Hacks" and Adventures

What's Your Credit Score

Posted on Jun 17, 2016 5:28:58 PM by Admin in FICO, in Personal Finance Tips, in Interest Rates

What's Your Credit Score?

No, really. Do you know what your credit score is? According to the Association of Credit and Collections Professionals, most Americans don't.
