Summer is here, and for many of us, that means long vacations ahead and some relaxing days outside and in the sun. But for many of us, the potential for a great and relaxing summer is marred by financial issues and debts. It’s essential as we continue to try and pay off our debts that we remember to take time for ourselves. Statistics are clear about the impact of stress on the body. Money is the second leading cause of stress on people in the United States, and 77% of United States citizens experience regular physiological issues related to stress. Long-term stress causes medical problems, which leads to medical bills and other avoidable expenses.
Therefore, think of vacationing as needed maintenance for your body. Science will back you on it. Recent studies show that people who work 55 hours a week or more are much more likely to suffer a heart attack or stroke than those who work between 35-40 hours per week. In the long run, the medical bills that are the cause of such traumatic life events will end up costing you more than the meager amounts of time that you took off work.
But we get it; it’s never easy to let go of your workload. You’ve got bills to pay, some of them large, and you need money to pay them. If you feel like you need a break from stress, or you are stressed because of an upcoming big bill, consider taking out a loan with Midwest Title Loans. You’ve probably got more than four reasons for needing a loan, but here are four big ones that we can think of.
Make the Most of Your Summer Vacation
Maybe you’re one of those people who has the time and the resources to take a break from your work week, you just don’t have enough money to do something genuinely relaxing. If you’re one of these types of people, a title loan from Midwest Title Loans could help you. The average vacation costs $1,145 per person in the United States. The number might shock you, as it comes as a shock to anyone who doesn’t budget.
This price includes food, lodging, entrance fees, travel fees, and other things that the average person doesn’t consider when dreaming about their next vacation. This might seem like a hefty sum to fork over when it comes to your weekly or bi-weekly paycheck, but it’s not so bad when you pay it in increments. If you’ve forgotten to tuck some away each paycheck to put toward your next vacation, then you should visit Midwest Title Loans. Your car could likely help you pay for your vacation, even though you don’t have enough saved up.
Make Big Life Changes Before The End of The Year
Sometimes, things happen that are out of your control. They’re not always bad – perhaps you’ve become pregnant, have gotten engaged, or even just got a new job that requires you to move. Sometimes, the best things come with significant stressors. If you don’t plan for these big events, it’s hard to imagine that you’ll be able to carry through with them. This goes double for those whose deadline is coming up. It’s easy to save for something far away on the horizon, but it’s not so easy to save for something that is coming up soon.
Luckily, there are options. If you have a car with a lien-free title, an exciting new life event is the perfect time to consider taking out a title loan. You can get the cash you need fast to update the spare bedroom into a nursery, plan a surprise wedding, or move cross-country for that well-deserved raised. Payments are affordable and allow you to keep your car while you make them. The goal for those of us at Midwest Title Loans is to help people get back on their feet by making their loan payments as comfortable as possible.
Kickstart Your 401K or Other Savings Plan
Summer is a perfect time to start saving because if you’re not planning a big vacation or other events, you won’t have much to account for monetarily other than your regular bills. Many people forget this, but December is less than half a year away, and while some people can shop for holidays last-minute, it usually puts a financial strain on them.
You can kickstart your savings plan, from everything as big as a 401k to something as negligible as a Christmas present list, by spacing out your payments with a title loan. Sometimes, you need a gentle reminder to save up. Put the funds away in your savings account, don’t touch them until you need them, and make the small payments you should have been making toward your savings toward your title loan in its stead.
Keep Your Car Safe and Up to Date
Speaking of winter, it is (believe it or not) just around the corner. While you soak up the sun, don’t forget the harshness that winter played not only on your body and spirit but also on the tools you use to survive. Before the rush of winter comes, summer is the perfect time to get your car looked at. Inspections before winter will keep you updated on any significant repairs that you might need to keep your vehicle safe and will give you time to get them taken care of before roads become unsafe.
Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to make big fixes on their cars immediately, but did you know that you can use your car’s worth to keep you safe? Unlike personal loans from the bank, title loan agencies don’t ask you about what you intend to use those funds for. That way, if you take out a loan, fix what you need to fix on your car, and then have leftovers you can do whatever you want with those funds.
Whatever your reasons for needing a little extra cash this summer, Midwest Title Loans can help you. Start by filling out an online application today, and one of our representatives will be in touch with you to help you finish the process and get on with your perfect summer.
