The Move Your Money Project Has Moved
Wednesday, February 18, 2015 6:30 AM

Credit Union National Association reports that the positive message "Move Your Money," which encouraged consumers to move their money from banks to alternative financial institutions such as credit unions, has been picked up by a personal finance blogger.

"We fundamentally believe in credit unions and small banks," said Melissa Robinson, the new owner of the Move Your Money Project. Robinson and her husband are filling the revamped website with new personal finance content while staying true to the original spirit of the importance of smaller financial institutions.

Robinson has an affinity for credit unions based on her experience as a child when employees would come to her school and help students deposit money and fill out their passbooks. Her pro-credit union feelings grew when she tried to open savings accounts for her children and the "big bank" charged her $3 per month, she said.

Robinson said is a resource for smart consumers to find ways to save money, from advice on how to join a credit union to coupons and special offers.
