In honor of Benjamin Franklin and his belief that thrift is the key to thriving, we celebrate Thrift Week every year on the week of Franklin’s birthday, January 17th. Help us bring awareness to the value of thrift, working hard and generosity by adopting thrifty habits and educating your family and friends to do the same.

Financial Wellness Month

January is Financial Wellness Month and we want to help you start the new year on the right foot with strong financial goals. The holiday season can be the most joyful, yet monetarily draining time of the year. However, you can take steps to recover your savings. Follow these weekly tips to help you save while spending less and more wisely going forward.

Financial Wellness Tip

Stop eating out.
Brew your own coffee, pack a lunch and prepare dinner at home. This will reduce your spending and may also help you develop a healthier lifestyle.
