To help people better manage holiday spending and avoid stress, SunTrust is offering tips, tools and advice on a website called holidaymeans.com.
Resources include a downloadable budgetworksheet to track spending; planning guide with steps to achieve a stress-free holiday; ideas for creating holiday memories; inspirational videos; and posts from guest bloggers that offer advice for a meaningful holiday.
“Holidays should be less financially stressful and more meaningful,” said Rilla Delorier, consumer channels executive at SunTrust Bank. “Our purpose at SunTrust is to help people achieve financial well-being, and that’s especially hard to do this time of year. Through holidaymeans.com, we’re showing people how they can think differently, spend thoughtfully and take specific steps to stay in financial control.”

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.
