With being right in the middle of the Holiday hustle and bustle, I find myself trying to beg borrow and steal time wherever I can, just to manage all the tasks on my list. Not only am I chasing after the kids, managing the house, and rounding up the family for holiday travel, I also tend to do a majority of the paper work in the house. Online banking has become a savior for me, and simply one of the greatest inventions ever!
When it come to banking, I cannot imagine banking the old fashioned way, especially with having two young kids. I can pay all of my bills from my couch, I don’t have to waste money on stamps, and the time it takes to fill out checks, and seal up envelopes, and make my way to the mailbox. Bank Of America offers some really great tools and time saving tips to help you save valuable time while helping to mange finances. We make greatest use of their online banking, and it makes managing bills so much easier. You can see when they go out, you can schedule payments, receive alerts and balance information, as well as make money transfers. With the winter months, I do not even have to put a toe out my front door, and I can take care of our financial obligations.
- Bank on the go: It’s easy to set up mobile banking and secure access to your money wherever you are. Download the mobile banking app and you can check balances, transfer money, pay bills, and locate ATMs. Sign up for text banking and you’ll be able to send a text message to get your balance instantly in a reply.
- Make quick and easy deposits: Holiday means a lot of extra work, so eliminate the labor of depositing checks. With Bank of America’s Deposit Image ATMs, you simply feed checks or cash into the ATM with no envelopes or deposit slips required. You get images of your checks and a list of cash deposited on your receipt as proof.
- Save a trip to the bank: Don’t worry about making an extra stop to the bank during all of your holiday shopping. Keep track of your spending by using Bank of America’s online banking: set up alerts, check balances, and transfer money.
During the holidays, it is important to manage your time, so you can enjoy those special moments with family. Outside of banking, I try to plan ahead, and organize items on my to do list that coordinate with each other. Both me and my husband split up (divide and conquer), each of us takes one kid, to take care of errands and chores. It eliminates having to take up the entire day trying to get everything done, and allows for us to have some quality family time. A little bit of planning goes a long way!
