I’ve learned over the years that financial success doesn’t happen overnight. It takes planning.

What you do today will effect your future and there are some easy things you can do now to make sure that 2015 is all set to be a financially successful year! This time of year it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and lose sight of the goals we’ve set to help us achieve financial peace of mind. This holiday stay on track with your finances with Capital One 360 as they deck the halls with deals you can bank on, including new account bonuses, referral bonuses and closing cost credits. Here are more ideas:

    • Savings account- Make sure you have a savings account that can be used in case of emergencies. If you don’t have one open one and make a plan to contribute to it asap.
    • Plan for big purchases- If you know that you will need to make a big purchase in 2015 start researching your best options and saving to purchase it.
    • Create a budget- This is so not scary to do and gets a total bad rap. Budgets can be liberating! Knowing exactly where your money is going and where you want it to go is a really good feeling. 
    • Make more money- Pretty basic advise right? But it often gets forgotten! Look for extra ways to make more money. Do you have a hobby that others would pay for? Do it! If you love pets start to pet sit. If you are an awesome seamstress offer your services to friends and family. 
    • Get the best deal on everyday needs. This is my favorite way to set yourself up for financial success. Look at your current bank accounts etc and make sure you are the best for your needs.
