Meaningful Within Your Means (Part 1)

The things that mean the most to you, are well within your means.

Holidays are a joyful time to enjoy with your loved ones, but we all know that holidays tend to get pricey. We want it all, food, celebrations, presents… It seems that more we spend to make others happy the more we feel down and depressed about our finances once the holidays are over.

That’s why SunTrust Bank is here to help you make this holiday season just a bit different from all the others. In reality any bank can talk to you about just money. That’s why SunTrust Bank is here to talk to you not about money, but a different currency. Like about depositing hope, instead of checks. And withdrawing stress, instead of cash. It’s about indulging in the currency of kindness and giving more than you receipt.

It’s about small things in life that bring us happiness and joy without costing us a ton of money. It’s about spending time with your loved ones and gifting them the time and memories instead of expensive gifts that bring temporary joy and more stress afterwards. It’s about creating memories and new traditions you all can look back at and think as the happiest time of your life.

This year we as a family are going to spend more time together. We are going to put more thought and less money into our gifts. We are going to stress less about that perfect party and focus on us, on things that make us happy like cookies and hot chocolate. We are going to create memories and have something to talk about throughout the years other than how much we have spent on the holiday.

Holidays don’t have to cost a lot to be joyful. It’s the people around you, the food, the thought, the happy moments that stay with all of us much longer than expensive gifts we don’t need, outgrow, or don’t like from the beginning.

That’s why this holiday season we are going to do things differently with help from SunTrust Bank and their Holiday Budget Plan. We are going to make a list of important things we want to do and use our holiday budget wisely. Not everything on our list will cost money and that is perfectly ok. But we are definitely going to start a new tradition this holiday season as we are a family of four this year for the first time!

This year think a little differently. Think how you can be more meaningful within your means and how you can make this holiday the best one yet for your loved ones?!

At SunTrust Bank their purpose is lighting the way to financial well-being. They want to help you reduce holiday stress through tools, advice, and inspiration that encourages you to make your holidays meaningful by spending within your means and focusing on meaningful experiences.
