The word ‘budget’ has become like a one-word mantra in our household. This was a huge and exciting year for our family and with so many changes – all coming at one time, it seems – establishing a workable budget had to be our first priority. It’s a simple way to avoid arguments over the holiday season (and really, all year long), a way to help us continue to achieve our dreams, and to ensure a secure future for our kids.
This year, I got engaged and we’ve built a new house together – those are HUGE and amazing changes! In fact, as I write this post, I’m sitting in my new kitchen, surrounded by boxes, starting a list of all the things we need.
Want. Need. There’s so much; if you’ve ever moved, you can understand that. Everything from dishwasher tablets to a new sofa to shower curtains. All the while, keeping in mind a budget we’ve set so that we can keep our dream a reality without becoming overwhelmed with debt.
Add in the upcoming holidays and – WHEW! – it’s easy for anyone’s budget to go right out the window. This is the time to start thinking about financial stability and financial peace of mind. Here’s the fun part; when you think of Black Friday, you usually don’t think about banks, checking accounts or account bonuses when it comes to sales, do you?
Capital One 360’s Black Friday Sale is encouraging those budgeting for financial stability to check out their site. It’s an awesome new way to think about Black Friday. Capital One 360 products are designed to save consumers, like you and I, time and money. Those are definitely two things we would all love to save this holiday season!
Whether you’re visiting them online or using their mobile app, Capital One 360 is with their customers 24/7. Their checking and 360 saving are fee-free and earn interest, which is practically free money! Who else gives you that for the holidays?
