I don’t know about you but during the holidays one of the last things I do is think about saving money or achieving financial peace of mind. While you may have gifts, greetings and get-togethers on the brain, it’s important not to lose sight of your financial goals. All of Capital One 360’s Black Friday Sale deals are designed to encourage consumers to keep their finances top of mind.
When you hear of “financial peace of mind” what does that mean to you? To me it is to have money in case of an emergency, so I started an emergency fund. For a few years when I was married my ex-husband wasn’t working and living on my paycheck was very tough. Some weeks not even knowing if I would have enough money for gas in my car to get me to work. If anything major happened I don’t know what we would have done. I had no savings, no emergency fund. One of my friends gave me this idea of what her family did. They saved $5 bills. Anytime the got change and there was a $5 in it she put it away. Well I can’t save $5 at a time but I can save all of my $1. Ever time I get a $1 I don’t spend it. They add up faster than you think.
Financial peace of mind could mean many different things it could be paying your bills on time and avoiding unnecessary fees or establishing and sticking to a reasonable and responsible budget.
