September 2016  



Happy September!  We trust you had a wonderful summer spent with family and friends and are looking forward to a colourful autumn season.

Before you act, listen.
Before you react, think.
Before you spend, earn.
Before you criticize, wait.
Before you pray, forgive.
Before you quit, try.

Ernest Hemingway

We hope you make it a September to remember!

You've taught them how to tie their shoelaces, to be careful around strangers and awkwardly touched on the whole "birds and bees" thing when forced into a corner. But if you haven't talked to your children about the importance of financial responsibility, you could be depriving them of crucial life skills that will impact their relationship with money forever.

Tip of the Month - Inflate Your Tires

For every two PSI of air pressure under the recommended level in your tires, you lose 1% on your gas mileage.  Most people's car tires are 5 to 10 PSI below the normal level, so that means by just inflating your tires, you can improve your gas mileage buy up to 5%.

Read your car's manual to see what the recommended pressure is and then head to the gas station.  Use the pump to inflate your tires to where they should be and voila - it's basically free gas!
