Sun Trust Bank has gone back to the tradition of helping consumers save money. They know that even a small lifestyle change helps you put money into the bank. This is how we used to live. Yes, we bought things after we could afford them not before. This allowed you to sleep at night and divas need their beauty sleep.
Frugality does not mean deprivation. It means creativity. It involves finding what you need at the best price. Going to the museum on free days. Having friends over for a book club. Or how about a movie club where you rent a movie and discuss it afterwards over a pot luck dinner. Knowing that everything goes on sale eventually. And maybe you don’t need it anyway. The Resource Center has articles about budgeting, starting a vegetable garden, and figuring out how to trim the fat from your budget. Guess what by not having so many snacks out, walking places, and being active fat gets trimmed in other places. That’s a win-win for every diva.
They now have a website The Resource Center with good advice about health costs, relationship money issues, college tuition, financial tools, and all manner of money issues.

This year, SunTrust is making a resolution: to help clients live more solid lifestyles. As part of that goal, SunTrust is launching the Solid Resolutions contest to motivate people by providing a forum for them to share their financial resolutions.
Few things are as motivating as telling others about a commitment, and that’s exactly what SunTrust is asking fans to do. Share how you resolve to live more financially-solid in 2012 and you’ll be registered in a drawing for one of four $100 SunTrust Visa® gift cards. Additionally, SunTrust will select one grand prize winner to receive a $5,000 package: a $2,500 SunTrust Visa® gift card to use now, a $2,500 SunTrust Bank1 certificate of deposit (CD) to save for later, and a consultation with a SunTrust financial advisor.
SunTrust invites people to consider what’s holding them back and what they’ve resolved to change. What financial baggage do you have and how do you resolve to cut it loose? What luxuries will you forego in 2012 to put more money in your savings account? Motivate yourself and others by sharing your goals for 2012 through the Solid Resolutions Live Solid Facebook contest. Also, read through previously submitted resolutions to find out what’s important to other SunTrust clients in the coming year.
