5 Things to do This November

1. “Remember, Remember the 5th of November!”
Bank Transfer day is a reminder that you are a part of something pretty great! You know all the benefits of being a member of a credit union, so share that knowledge with friends and family. For every person you refer to West Community, you get $25!  
2. Fall Cleaning
Things are about to heat up for the holidays and soon you wont have time to tackle your most basic home care things let alone the big stuff. Pick a weekend to get all this checklist completed and you’ll have your home in top shape for winter.  

3. Gear Up for the Holidays
We know it seems soon, but think about it this way: Thanksgiving is less than four weeks away and Christmas is 8 weeks. There are actually a handful of reasons starting your holiday planning early is a good idea, but mainly the potential to save you money. Arm yourself with a West Community credit card and get 0% when you shop Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday!*
4. Do It Yourself
This year, consult Pinterest for affordable and elegant home decor, recipes and DIY gifts. Try making this super easy and cute acorn squash centerpiece that requires minimum craft skills!
5. Practice Gratitude
Let kids in on the concept of financial gratitude. Sit down as a family to talk about what each one of you is thankful for, and emphasize the fact that some of the things you’re most thankful for go beyond material objects. Ask kids what they’re most thankful for, and, depending on how old they are, consider having them draw pictures to illustrate these things. As for you? Share what you’re thankful for about your finances in the comments!
