Going to try a different type new year’s resolution this year with the help of Capital One 360

Going to try a different type of new year's resolution this year - #FinancialPeace #CleverGirls #ad

The holidays are great because this is the time of year that most people are liberal with spending. There’s parties to attend and everyone is in a good mood in anticipation to be off work with lots of family time. However, in just a few short weeks from now after all the holiday festivities are over and we head into bleak, cold January – reality sets in.

This is why I dislike the month of January  - theres so many reasons but here’s a few off the top of my list:

  1. It’s cold
  2. There’s no more holiday fun to look forward to until spring
  3. You have to put away all the Christmas decorations
  4. The holiday bills you racked up start rolling in

And on top of all that, you desperately try to remain faithful to whatever number of new year’s resolutions you committed to do whether you’ve given up fried food, establishing a workout routine or trying to save money.

Last year, I made my resolution about saving money because I’ve failed time and time again on the fried food and working out business. I figured in 2014, saving money was worth a shot this time around! We did pretty good with it until around March, when life started to hit the fan – our small amount of savings really helped out, but from that point on we never got back on track with it.

My point is, I wish I would have had the chance to have a head start on it before January. Capital One 360′s black friday sale is offering some great opportunities to cash in on, so you don’t face that financial ruin in January. Its so important not to lose sight of your financial goals, and that’s what Capital One 360′s financial products are designed to help you with. Take advantage of their banking, brokerage and mortgage products if financial planning is part of your new year’s resolution strategy.

In addition to taking advantage of deals on banking, brokerage and mortgage products yourself, you can give your friends and family the gift of financial peace of mind by encouraging them to take advantage of the deals and refer them to the sale. If they sign up, you may be eligible for a $40 referral bonus.

For example this is what’s going on from Nov. 28th 12:01 AM ET through Dec. 1st 11:59 PM ET:

ShareBuilder Up to $1,250 bonus (tiered offer)
  • Must be a new ShareBuilder customer
Home Loans $1,250 off closing costs
  • Must sign up for the loan during the sale period
360 Checking $100 bonus
  • Must make a $500 minimum initial deposit and make five transactions
  • Must be new to 360 Checking
360 Savings $100 bonus
  • Must make a $1,000 minimum initial deposit
  • Must be new to 360 Savings
Refer a Friend $40 bonus per successful referral
  • For someone to receive the referral bonus, they must be a current customer
  • Their friend must meet the minimum initial deposit requirements
  • Applies to all accounts

 

Sounds like some awesome incentives, especially if you’re in the market for financial products like these anyway. I’m thinking I might start up a savings account and cash in on that 100$ bonus!

Are YOU thinking of a resolution for 2015 yet? I’d love to hear what you’re doing!

A dream is a wish your heart makes- #WishesDelivered

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of UPS. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you ever wonder how many hands your package passes through when its shipped through UPS? It must take dozens between the very first person who scans it in, to the delivery person that drops if off on your doorstep.. There’s so much around-the-clock dedication that goes behind getting people their anxiously awaited belongings that they ordered. I personally LOVE shopping online, and tracking my shipment to see exactly when it’s going to turn up on my doorstep – I even signed up for the txt alerts!

Sometimes there’s a little more excitement than when you just order socks.. Like last week when I ordered the lens of my dreams – I was so excited that I was buying it that I sprung for the extra cost of 1 day delivery!

Of course, that was also my Christmas present from my both husband and myself – Merry Christmas to me!! So with the giving season upon us – if you were to wish a selfless wish for the holiday season on someone else’s behalf, what would it be? Is there something that a loved one of yours needs that is going to remain a wish for awhile, if not forever? Why not try submitting your wish to UPS via instagram or twitter with the #WishesDelivered hashtag?

I don’t know about anyone else, but opening something you’ve ordered that means so much to you can be a magical experience. UPS is proud to say that they do this for people on a daily basis – especially during the holiday season. In honor of this, UPS will donate $1 to one of their charity partners (Salvation Army, Boys & Girls Club or Toys for Tots) for up to 100K for every wish submitted with the hashtag #WishesDelivered. All the more reason to submit one – do it for charity!! You can also submit wishes via the #WishesDelivered site. You can submit your wish to UPS now through December 31st, 2014.

 What will YOUR wish be? I’d love to hear more about it!

Steel Meister Spot Cleaner is my secret to flawless stainless steel kitchen appliances

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Meister Cleaners. All opinions are 100% mine.

When you have a small child, everything comes with a side order of fingerprints and a layer of stickiness at about waist level. So if you have a stainless steel fridge, I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to keep clean when you have little people pulling it open over and over. Even without kids, we adults can easily mess things up especially when we are cooking and moving between the fridge, stove, microwave & sink. That being said, I think I have found the secret to keeping stainless steel flawless looking. As a mom and blogger of food, I use my stove and microwave combo quite abit.

Recently, I managed to mess up the door handle pretty badly when making my chocolate pie, so I thought it would be a good time to wipe it down with Meister Cleaners Spot Cleaner to get it looking normal again. I used a microfiber cloth and sprayed some of the Steel Meister Spray on it and set to work polishing up my microwave door. I picked up this spray bottle of at Home Depot, in the appliance dept.

Steel meister has so many reasons for me to love it.. my biggest reasons are because:

  • It does not have a funky odor when you spray it
  • It leaves an effortless ‘new & shinny’ sheen after you finish using it
  • You’re not just limited to using it on your stainless steel kitchen appliances -Try using it on your outdoor grill, automotive trim or light fixtures.

After putting in a little elbow grease, The microwave shined so bright with not a fingerprint in sight! My 5 year old microwave now looks brand new again and I couldn’t be happier about it.

Kitchen sinks can see a lot of action and take the most abuse. Mine looks pretty good, however there’s this rusty spot that occurred somehow – my guess is that it came from a steel wool soap pad that was left there too long. So I decided to put the Steel Meister’s spot cleaner to work and see what it could do….

I love Steel Meister Spot cleaner because it is great for so many reasons…

  • It removes dirt, grease, grime, water spots and any other unpleasantness that gets stuck to the kitchen sink.

  • Use it in conjunction with the steel meister spray as a pre-cleaner!

Like these 2 products? There’s also ANOTHER 2 that I didn’t show you.. Try looking for Stone Meister and Range Meister

Stone Meister is ideal for natural stone—polished granite, marble, soap stone, slate, polished concrete, other water-tolerant counter surfaces. Its great to have around the kitchen because it:

  • cleans, polishes without streaking
  • food safe
  • safe for all coated surfaces—won’t affect sealers
  • biodegradable
  • environmentally friendly

Range Meister knocks out dirt with one powerful punch. Going deeper than conventional cleaners can reach, Range Meister soaks down to drive out burnt-on/baked-on food, grease and grime lodged beneath the surface—then buffs your glass or ceramic cooktop to a protective shine.

  • cleans deep beneath the surface
  • removes burnt-on/baked-on food
  • polishes and protects
  • no residue, streaks or scratching
