Financial Education Blog- To Save or To Spend


To Save Or To Spend. That Is The Question. During these uncertain times, what?s your strategy? Should you be saving or spending? That depends on your individual situation. However, in these challenging times having an adequate ?Emergency Fund? is extremely important, so savings should be a priority in most households. As you might expect, in the past few months during the pandemic, the national household savings rate has increased substantially from the prior year. Households are buying basic necessities, covering their debt obligations and then saving a significant portion of their disposable income where possible for a rainy day. With businesses and restaurants beginning to reopen, consumers have more choices than ever for spending, but they should continue to put money into their ?Emergency Fund? to protect themselves. A rainy day fund comes in handy when those unplanned expenses and emergencies arise. As we enter ?Back to School? season (whether remotely or in-person), back-to-school expenses can really add up. To ensure your back-to-school funds go the furthest, comparison shop and take advantage of sales and discounts on school supplies. Remember, you can even use some of the funds in your rainy day fund to cover school supplies. If you?d like to discuss your saving vs. spending plans, please call ABNB?s Financial Education Department at (757) 523-5380. We?re here to help you every step of the way. Stay safe and healthy.

July Staff Spotlight: Krystal Jones, MSR


If you've visited ABNB's Chesapeake Square branch, you've likely met Krystal. Krystal Jones is a seasoned Member Service Representative at Chesapeake Square. She entered the banking industry in 2001 and joined ABNB in 2016 at the former Guardian location. Krystal is an area expert when it comes to helping our members understand ABNB's great HELOC products. "Krystal is member focused and knowledgeable. She truly cares about each and every one of her members and their needs" says Jennifer McCallister, Relationship Manager. Krystal's not all business though. She loves to sing and loves fashion! In her own words she "loves a good heel with the bag to match." Girl, we agree! When she's not on the clock Krystal also jives with any songs that have a good beat and are heartfelt. She also loves to read and watch movies; Hallmark is her favorite channel! Krystal loves dogs (specifically those sized to fit nicely in previously mentioned matching purses) but she's petrified of cats. Now that you know a little bit more about one of ABNB's star employees, don't forget to sit down to let her know a little about yourself. Be sure to chat about how she can help you save big time on your home loans. Set up an appointment with Krystal at ABNB's Chesapeake Square branch today by calling (757) 523-5300 x1604.
