How to Improve Your Relationship With Money

by PJ Van Hulle (guest blogger- expert)

Just like you have relationships with other people, you have a relationship with money. First, decide that your money is important to you and worth spending time with. If you’re in a relationship with someone and you tell them “you’re just not that important to me,” how long do you think they’re going to stick around?

Do you keep your cash organized in your wallet or crumpled up in wads around the house with piles of loose change? I encourage you to treat your money with respect.

When money is important to you, you are willing to spend quality time with it, just like with someone you’re dating. Schedule a regular time to give your money your full attention.

During your “Money Date,” you can find out how your money is doing by reviewing your financial statements, balancing your checkbook, or reconciling your accounts.

In the past, when I didn’t have a regular “Money Date,” I handled my finances randomly. I would balance my checkbook and pay bills when I got around to it, which meant that sometimes I was organized and sometimes my finances were in total chaos. I wasted hundreds of dollars in fees that could have been avoided if I was monitoring my finances more closely.

Now that I have regular and consistent “Money Dates,” I have clarity around my finances, and I make better decisions. I love it, and I believe that you will, too.

  1. Great Article Sheri. Not only do I enjoy inspiring and encouraging others to grow in their lives; but I am an fully licensed investment advisor. I know the importance of setting aside the time needed to give your finances 100% of your attention and I share that with my clients regularly; but I have never heard it called a “Money Date”! Great idea; thanks so much for sharing and keep up with the impacts you are making in the world!

  2. I keep a budget and I have my own form of Money date at least twice a month, but no matter how hard I try I tend to have a negative relationship with money it seems. 😦
