3 Easy Ways to Love Your Money

February is known as the month of love, an opportunity to celebrate our relationships with friends, loved ones, ourselves — and even with our finances! That's right, just like any relationship, your relationship with money needs to be nurtured with time, effort and care.

Are you ready to fall in love with your finances? Keep reading for some easy ways to show your money a little extra TLC:

#1: Treat yourself to great savings rates

When it comes to love, don't settle for less. The same is true for your savings! Get more from your hard-earned money by choosing a savings account that offers a high rate with no hidden or “surprise" fees. 

At Wright-Patt Credit Union (WPCU), we return value to our members every day in the form of great rates and extraordinary service. Our high-yielding savings account options are just one of the many benefits of being part of a member-owned financial cooperative that has your best interest at heart!

#2: Give your budget the attention it deserves

Stress, worry and frustration can get in the way of any healthy relationship, including your relationship with your finances. Creating and following a budget is one of the best ways to feel more in control of your money so you can use it as a tool to achieve your goals!

Start by tracking your income and expenses with Money Management, a free budgeting tool available within WPCU’s Mobile and Online Banking. With Money Management, it’s easy to stay on top of your spending habits so you always know where your money is going.

Next, it's time to create a budget. Check out WPCU's free budgeting worksheets and spreadsheets or visit a Member Center to chat with one of our friendly Financial Coaches about building a budget you love!

#3: Grow your money iQ

No matter where you are on your financial journey, it's worth going the extra mile to learn more about money! At WPCU, we make it easy to schedule a “date" for financial learning with our full calendar of educational seminars, webinars and events on a wide variety of topics.

We also have a convenient online Education Center where you can find helpful tools, worksheets, videos and more to help you achieve greater financial flexibility and freedom anytime, anywhere.
