Motivated to Save

This is a sponsored post on behalf of SunTrust Bank. Opinions are my own.

It’s really easy to start the new year off motivated to succeed, but sometimes, the momentum falls off as early as a few weeks into January. I know that I’m guilty of this, and it’s easy to let yourself fall into those same bad routines.

I think the important thing to remember is that small choices can sometimes make all the difference, and even if you’ve veered off course a bit with your New Year’s resolutions, it doesn’t mean you should scrap them. In fact, one of my goals was to save money this year, and I’ve already had a few bumps. I’m going to keep my goal in front of me, though, and I’m determined to make the most of our money and to remember that small sacrifices today will mean even greater payoff later.

In fact, even though the holidays are over, I’ve been thinking a lot about next Christmas. I’ve set up a savings account to put money away for gifts next year, and I know that this will help take some of the burden off of me when the holidays roll around. It will be here in the blink of an eye, after all!

Of course, getting your finances in order ahead of time always helps, and Suntrust Bank’s money personality quiz is a great place to start the process.
