CES Day 1 is complete. Our friends left our hometown of Cincinnati and are currently at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas. If you are reading this thinking “What is the CES Show?” then head over to our first blog, Consumer Electronic Show (CES) – 2019. In the blog we explain all the fun and exciting new technology that is coming to the convention this year.
It’s a couple days after the New Year’s celebration and for a lot a people it’s the beginning of New Year’s resolution. A fresh new year is a perfect time to pick a personal goal that you want to achieve in 2019, and it’s important to pick a resolution that you will be able to stick with throughout the year.
People resolve to focus on health and fitness, set new job related goals, stop a bad habit, get organized, work on relationships, and so much more. Other people (like me) make their personal goal a financial one. My goal is to save as much money as I can by tracking my expenses.
If you are like me or just want to get organized in 2019, I have put together a list of the best expense tracking apps and programs to help you achieve a higher level of financial knowledge and readiness for the New Year.

Black Friday is coming up quick and Cyber Monday is following right behind it! It is definitely time to start planning your shopping mission. Black Friday has turned from a single day into a whole saving weekend, and Cincinnati Bell wants to guarantee you are saving the most.
Get on top of your game with these Black Friday and Cyber Monday tips.
Research the Deals: Black Friday starts earlier and earlier every year. Make sure you are checking the prices leading up to Black Friday to ensure you are getting the best deal. Keep an eye on the actual sale because online retailers regularly update the prices throughout the event, and sometimes offer deals before Black Friday.
Shop Strategically: Look up all the ads (print and online) a couple days in advance. It’s important to also prioritize your shopping list to determine what you actually need to buy. Start with your high-priority items and make your way down the list. Pro tip: Pick up a newspaper on Thanksgiving morning at any grocery store or coffee shop. The Thanksgiving Day paper will include ALL of the sale ads.
