Great Online Resource: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

Did you create a New Year’s resolution to take better care of your finances? How’s that working out for you so far? (In other words, are you stuck?)

If you’re needing a little bit of help – getting started, figuring out what areas you need to concentrate on, or just becoming more financially savvy – check out the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

The site offers free help and information about setting budgets, planning retirement, purchasing a car or home, and even registering complaints about a company’s services or products. With glossaries and tools created especially for the average consumer, it’s a great place to get started on that resolution (which might help you conquer a few resolutions down the road!).
