SUIT UP YOUR FINANCES









 I hope you are having a wonderful week!  I think a pinstripe suit is a perfect option especially if you are petite like myself because the pinstripes create an elongating effect. The pants are flares but keeping the seams fitted creates a more professional look. This suit is so classic and will never go out of style. The holidays are almost here so a suit like this is so versatile and different pieces can be restyled for holiday parties to reveal your own personal style.

As we are approaching the holidays for most you will be spending more money.  Remember to take time and develop a financial plan to get you through the holidays but most importantly to jumpstart your new year!

Holiday  Survival Plan:

1. Set a limit! Create a budget that you are happy with and most importantly stick to it. You do not want to wake up the day after Christmas in debt. Definitely not an ideal way to start off your new year! I know credit card companies offer rewards for spending; however, if you are not to a point where you can charge something and pay it off immediately then you must resort to a cash budgeting system.

2. Plan in advance! Decide on the best shopping days and take advantage of pre holiday sales. Don't forget that the best sales are before and after the holiday season. You can start planning for next year based on the after holiday season sales as well.

3. Find creative ways to give! If you can bake well then baked goods are always delicious holiday gifts. Our time is one of God's greatest gifts so volunteering to babysit for an overwhelmed parent would be an awesome gift. You can also trim your list by drawing names with family members. Last never assume people know that you care. You can always send a card attached with a heart felt note.

4. Reduce your stress & Enjoy the reason for the season!
Holidays can become very busy with parties, shopping, and still maintaining other commitments. Therefore, utilize your calender so you can stay on task and not over commitment.  The holidays is not about what you do that one time in the year for others it's about the love that you share throughout the entire year. However, if stress levels reach an all time high try taking a walk or doing other forms of exercise so you can relax and reflect on the true reason that we celebrate the season. Remember your thoughts consume you and shape your life. You attract your most dominate thoughts in life. Therefore, stressful thoughts will only attract stress so whatever is in your heart will always appear in your thoughts!

I pray that you have a wonderful weekend filled with blessings and love! Thank you as always for stopping by.
