Spring Clean Your Life

Thursday, May 02 at 04:00 PM
Category: Arvest News

Colorful flowers and fresh-cut lawns are sure signs spring has arrived. However, the clutter of life can sometimes overshadow the growth and opportunity this time of year brings. Try a few of the tips below to find out how spring cleaning requires a lot more than just vacuuming and dusting.

Manage Spending

Does it feel like you spend your paycheck a little faster every month? Consider creating a budget. Start by making a list of everything you spend money on, down to the smallest purchase. Then, prioritize those items, with the most important expense listed as number one. Divide up your paycheck from there, and assign specific spend limits to each item. The most important step is: stick to your budget. If you know where your paycheck is going each month, it could be easier to say no to impulsive, unnecessary purchases.

Organize Belongings

It can be overwhelming to sort through old, unused personal belongings. Rather than giving up and stockpiling everything in your attic, create three piles to sort items into — one pile to keep, one pile to give away and one pile to throw away. Better yet, use storage tubs or trash bags to keep each pile contained. Commit to giving away or throwing away a certain number of items to resist holding onto unnecessary clutter. House Beautiful* recommends getting rid of anything that has gone unused for six months or more.

Label Storage

After you have disposed of the trash pile and donated the give-away pile, it is time to tackle the keep pile. If you plan to stash the majority of your belongings in a storage unit or attic, it must be neatly organized. Consider purchasing large, secure packing tubs and filling each box strategically. After each container is filled, write the contents on a piece of paper and tape it to the lid of the tub. Now, each time you are looking for something in storage, it will be easy to find and easy to repack. Be sure to update the lists each time you remove or add anything.

Declutter Finances

Not all clutter is obvious — the balance on your credit card is another important item to take control of. While large balances can be overwhelming and seem unending, there are options for making the amount easier to manage. Consider transferring your balance to an Arvest Consumer Credit Card. You will enjoy 0%1 APR for 12 billing cycles on balance transfers and purchases. After that, your rate will be based on credit worthiness, 14.65% to 21.00%. You can also earn up to $1002 in bonus rewards. Try to use the promotional period to pay off a large portion of the card’s balance and ease the burden on your account.

Assign Tasks

Rather than trying to conquer your entire to-do list in one day, The Spruce* recommends scheduling a week of smaller projects — focusing on one project each day. This will help to avoid burnout and make the list seem less daunting. With each assignment completed, cross an item off and see your progress in real-time. Short on time? Consider involving every member of your household. If each person completes their share of the responsibilities, you can declutter your life in a fraction of the time.

Cycling Safety Tips for National Bike Month

Wednesday, April 24 at 01:00 PM
Category: Arvest News

Whether it’s for leisure, commuting, or exercise, people choose to ride bicycles daily across the United States. And much like drivers, bicyclists have a responsibility to stay alert while traveling. This choice could mean the difference between life, serious injury, or death for yourself or those around you. As a cyclist, always ride distraction-free and pay attention to your surroundings.

May is National Bike Month, and Arvest Bank is sharing expert tips from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration* on how to stay safe while cycling.

Helmets

Size can vary between manufacturers. Follow the steps to fit a helmet properly. It may take time to ensure a proper helmet fit, but your life is worth it. It’s usually easier to look in the mirror or have someone else adjust the straps. For the most comprehensive list of helmet sizes according to manufacturers, go the Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute (BHSI) Web site*.

Decreasing Risks of Crashes

There are two main types of crashes: the most common (falls), and the most serious (the ones with cars). Regardless of the reason for the crash, prevention is the name of the game. There are things you can do to decrease your risk of a crash. First, know some bicycle safety facts:

  • Bicyclist deaths occur most often between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., regardless of the season (20% weekdays and 26% weekends).
  • Bicyclist deaths occur most often in urban areas (71%) compared to rural areas (29%).
  • Bicyclist deaths were 5.6 times higher for males than females in 2016.
  • Alcohol was involved in 35 percent of all fatal bicyclist crashes in 2016.
  • Ride responsibly, and remember: All states require bicyclists on the roadway to follow the same rules and responsibilities as motorists.

Improve Your Riding Skills

No one learns to drive a vehicle safely without practice and experience; safely riding your bike in traffic requires the same preparation. Start by riding your bike in a safe environment away from traffic (a park, path, or empty parking lot).

Take an on-bike class through your school, recreation department, local bike shop or bike advocacy group. Confidence in traffic comes with learning how to navigate and communicate with other drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Review and practice as a safe pedestrian or bicyclist is great preparation for safe riding.

Before you ride, make sure your bike is in good working order, put on a helmet, and be sure you can manage the ride or route you've chosen. Enjoy the ride!
