How To Prepare for 2015 In Money and In Style!

Friday, November 28, 2014

Hey Everyone!!!

Can you believe that 2015 is right around the corner? People always say that the year “goes fast” but 2014 actually did go fast, at least for me.  I’m always ready and awaiting a fresh new year with a fresh new start. Each year, I get better at learning from hard times and taking those lessons and making some better out of them. Growing financially mature is one of the main lessons always in my life. I've been through alot money wise, I often think “I must be getting prepared to me a millionaire.” Lol I learned that there is nothing embarrassing about your struggle, at least  learn from it.

Planning for an awesome 2015 financially is what I’m starting for the New Year. It’s not enough to just say, “I want to save more”.  I need a plan of attack!! Here are some ideas I've got going in my Notes section of my IPod. I’m always keeping running lists, inspiration and ideas in that area and it’s naturally convenient as well.

#1- Cleaning out my handbag, wallet, receipts, bill folders- I can be a bit messy sometimes, but once heard an motivational speaker say to treat your money, no matter much you have, like you want it to treat you. Getting organized and putting forth effort to staying organized, like cleaning your purse out once week is on my to do list.

#2 Setting a savings goal and creating a plan of attack- My biggest issue to date financially is saving money. I feel like if I can destroy the thought of “I can’t save money very well” I will be able to do so much more. I've currently started to challenge myself to save and it has been going well.  I have a big goal for 2015, to save a set amount so that we can move into our own place. I want to be prepared to move and move the way I want to (new furniture, professional movers) and I need put the money aside as much as possible. I’m working on that plan of attack too. I will become a great saver!

#3 Speaking financial greatness into my life- If I don’t tell myself, that I can save, I can spend wisely, I can budget well for my family, I will be able to support my family abundantly….then who will? Speaking those positive phrases over your financial life can help you become to fiscal diva you want to be. All this is coming from a woman who has been unemployed on and off for 5 years, single mom of twins, living with a parent with currently $65 in her pocket. WE will be great in money and style!!!!!
