    Thank you CreditRepair.com for sponsoring this post. CreditRepair.com’s team understands that a credit score is not just a number; it’s a lifestyle.

    P L A N N I N G is K E Y

    When it comes to getting ready for the future + what life has in store, planning is essential!

    Whether it’s saving up for a house, paying off student loans, budgeting to start a family, prepping to purchase a new car…honestly the list goes on + on, one thing is imperative and that is being smart by planning ahead for what’s to come. That’s why I am so excited for today’s blog post which highlights how CreditRepair.com is a leading provider of credit report repair services in the US! They have an amazing team of credit professionals who educate and empower individuals to achieve the credit scores they deserve, now that is something that excites me more than ever!

    Before we jump in to how amazing CreditRepair.com is as a resource to help get you on track for your financial future, I wanted to get a little personal and share my financial journey throughout the years since hey we ALL make mistakes or have things happen in life that can seem like a huge obstacle to overcome but really it’s a stepping stone to something bright ahead!

    While I was fortunate enough to not have student loans (I went to a city school + back when I went it was relatively affordable), I did tend to incur credit card debt from trying to live beyond my means which took me a little over a year to clear up.

    missyonmadison, missyonmadison blog, missyonmadison instagram, la blogger, creditrepair, financial planning, financial plan, financial planning for the future, future planning, fixing your credit, fix your credit, how to plan for your financial future, how to fix your credit,

    Thanks to budgeting + setting small goals week by week for myself, I was able to slowly start my financial path to success (and a better credit score). While I was doing it alone then, I am really grateful for CreditRepair.com because they show you how your credit score is not written in stone, and you are more than a credit score. But your credit won’t fix itself. You can get the help you need from CreditRepair.com today with a free consultation and kickstart your credit repair efforts. It feels good to have a team on your side to help you achieve your goals (and assist you with fixing any issues you may be encountering as well when it comes to your financial planning).

    My financial goals are to prep for buying a house in the next year or so, getting a new car (my lease is up in 6 months) + continuing to invest in stocks, mutual funds + high return savings accounts. If you told me a few years ago this is the kind of stuff I’d be wanting to invest my money in, I’d say you are crazy BUT as you get older you realize the importance of being financially savvy + smart which doesn’t always come easy.

    When I was younger I didn’t realize how important your credit score was to your overall financial future + reaching your goals and aspirations. Better credit could save you thousands of dollars in high interest rates (which none of us want when already going to make a big milestone purchase like a house or car etc). Past clients of CreditRepair.com have seen an average score increase of 40 points in just four months (* Not all clients saw such a result as all legal cases are different. You should not expect to see the same result and it is not guaranteed.)

    What I love about CreditRepair.com is how accessible, understanding + helpful they are (sometimes talking to someone in the financial world can be an intimidating experience but that isn’t the case with CreditRepair.com). CreditRepair.com’s technology provides members with a personal online dashboard, a credit score tracker and analysis, creditor and bureau interactions, text and email alerts, mobile apps and credit monitoring (this is super helpful to detect fraud or anything suspicious popping up as well, I constantly check mine to assure everything is in order).

    ♥ DESIGNER BUYS FOR LESS? COUNT ME IN! ♥

    If ya’ll know anything about me, you know I LOVE some good designer goodies. Ever since I was a teenager, I began my handbag obsession, saving up for designer bags like Gucci, Dior, LV etc + as I got older I moved on to Chanel, Hermes + more. Recently I have been also stocking up on designer shoes like Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Stuart Weitzman + more. While I love designer must-haves, I learned that sometimes buying brand new in store isn’t the most cost effective so I am sharing my secrets with ya here!

    First up, SHOES! So I have scored tons of designer heels, boots + more all for 40% Off or MORE! How?? Easy, research baby. I search the SALE section of my favorite sites that have all the designers I love + keep an eye out for certain styles I am lusting after or staple pieces I can interchange with various outfits etc. I found that investing in classic pumps, sandals etc that are nicely constructed really last a while PLUS they are easily repaired from your local shoemaker or one of my go-to shoe + handbag magicians, PurseRehab! They can fix ANYTHING! From resoling your shoes to fixing fabric damage, stains etc…such a must-have if you are a designer lover like me so you don’t worry about messing up your higher end pieces.

    While certain staples like the Manolo Blahnik Hangsi Pump may not go on sale brand new from certain retailers, a great option is to search for them ‘New with Tags‘ from eBay Fashion, Poshmark, Yoogi’s Closet, FashionPhile, The Real Real + more! These second hand retailers often have shoes + bags in MINT condition and you can usually save on shipping, tax or snag them under current retail price AND they are all GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC (make sure you 100% verify the seller)!

    When it comes to buying second hand designer goods here are some things I look for:

    Box, Authenticity Card / Papers, Dust Bag

    (these are helpful to verifying the shoes or bag are REAL + AUTHENTIC, plus they are helpful when going to resell in the future if that is something you are interested in doing)

    Condition

    (examine the photos very carefully, look for discoloration, damaged threading, piping etc, marks, tears etc…while these aren’t deal breakers, they do contribute to quality factor however you may be able to use these hiccups to your advantage + simply go to a place like PurseRehab to repair those issues at a relatively low cost making the items look BRAND NEW for less!)

    Compare Costs

    (just because you find a Chanel for a killer price doesn’t mean that is the best deal out there, search the serial number of the item – any reputable seller should have that or the full product name for you to do a quick search + compare pricing, condition etc from other sellers)

    Whether you are searching for brand new pieces at a trustee retailer like Net-A-Porter, Saks Off Fifth etc or want to score a deal at a second hand luxury site, either way you are sure to find some amazing + unique finds at a fraction of the retail cost, perfect for avid collectors or first time buyers if you are trying to save a little!

    Tips for Keeping A Happy Perspective…

    ♥ BECAUSE I’M HAPPY ♥

    Had to start off today’s post with some of my favorite lyrics from a song that always cheers me up…’Happy‘ by Pharrell from the Despicable Me soundtrack hehe :p I don’t know about you but between blogging, starting my own business + working 24/7 sometimes it is hard to keep a happy perspective when I am trying to do it all. Because of that I have been striving to always be happy no matter what is happening in life so I wanted to share some of my tips for keeping a happy outlook + positive attitude no matter what.

     1. MAKE A PLAN FOR SUCCESS

    Too often the number one stressor people have is not having a plan. Whether that be a plan for their future, a plan for their week, a plan for work etc. While I often have a lot of different things going on at once, I keep my sanity + my positive attitude by writing things down in my calendar + creating plans + timelines for when + how I need to get things done. By doing this I avoid getting unhappy + stressed out by different situations coming up 🙂

     2. TAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF

    The number one way to make yourself unhappy? Not caring for yourself. Whether it’s unwinding with your favorite show, reading a good book or taking a vacation, taking time to rest, recharge + do the things you enjoy is crucial to keeping a happy outlook each + every day.

    3. NOT SWEATING THE SMALL STUFF

    As I’ve gotten older I learned the importance of not stressing over little issues. Something that tends to always stress me out isn’t big problems, it’s little problems that pop up randomly. By conditioning yourself to not overreact when little bumps arise, you are able to feel a lot happier + carefree.

    4. EXPLORE NEW INTERESTS

    A sure fire way to keep me happy is by traveling, trying new hobbies or just exploring a new interest. Whether it be buying a Groupon for a fun activity or traveling to a new city, switching things up is a great way to get out of a funk, brighten up your mood + give you a happy outlook!

    5. KNOW YOUR LIMITS

    OK, so I am so guilty of not following this + in turn getting frustrated haha We live in a world where everything is constant, jobs are basically 24/7 + we are all motivated to do our best + succeed. Now being a go-getter is of course AMAZING, BUT not so much at the expense of your relationships with family + friends, your mental health + your overall happiness. A key to happiness in my opinion is knowing your limits + what you can and can’t handle. If I need help I am not afraid to ask for it AND I am not afraid to say no if I know it truly doesn’t serve me well 🙂

    What things do you do to maintain a happy outlook? I’d love to hear!
