5 Money Mantras for the New Year

Hey y'all!

A new year always brings around new goals. My goal for this year is to make and save some major $$$. Being financially responsible isn't always easy at a young age, but my parents really enforced good money habits in my sister and me. 

My husband and I are really lucky to say that we only have one "debt" of his car payment. We never carry over a credit card balance and I make it a priority to save a large portion of our paychecks each month. It makes me confident for our future knowing that if something were to happen, we would be okay financially.

I've talked about the law of attraction and manifestation on the blog before. Basically, the more you see/talk/think about something, the more likely you are to bring it into reality. It's like passing Starbucks every day on the way to work...you can't help craving a Venti Coldbrew. You see it. You crave it. You want it. But if you started going the other way and avoiding the Starbucks line altogether, you may save yourself some money and avoid the caffeine jitters. Thank U, next.

Since my goal this year is focusing on abundance and money, I thought I'd share the mantras I'll be using, as well as some tips to help you manifest the big bucks for yourself.

My Favorite Reads of 2020

 Hey y'all!

I won't be bold and claim that 2020 was my year. Although I got engaged (and recently married), my year kinda sucked too. But with quarantine, I have fallen even more in love with reading!

I was originally just using my phone with the Kindle app, but it gave me anxiety when I saw notifications pop up while I was reading. I usually ended up scrolling on Instagram when I had set aside time to read.

At the beginning of quarantine, I knew I wanted to get a Kindle. But it was also hard to justify that much money on something that's only for reading. My sweet momma of mine sent me a surprise gift and told me to get one for myself when it was on sale.

Holiday Gift Guides for 2020

Hey y'all!

December is always my favorite month of the year because it's my birthday month AND Christmas! Two of the most fun things to celebrate if I do say so myself. Everyone's holiday plans will probably look a little different this year, and so will shopping for gifts.

I was able to get all of our Christmas shopping done early this year because we did it all online. It's a good and a bad thing because you find yourself adding to cart more online vs in-store. If you're looking for some ideas (or are maybe a little last minute), I've got you covered with some basics.

All of the items below are from Amazon. When shopping these links, I may earn a small commission from your purchases. This is no charge to you, but helps me pay for all of my Christmas shopping! Thank you for making texasweettea possible.

If you don't have Amazon Prime yet, you can sign up here for a free 30 day membership. Included in the membership is unlimited FREE two-day shipping, the ability to borrow Kindle books, and watch thousands of TV shows and movies.
