Now that Santa Claus came to town in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the holiday season has officially begun! However, this season can be rather treacherous from a financial standpoint if you do not keep a tight rein on the spending (not just the reindeer). Whether you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, or some other December holiday, the “season of giving” can be a huge budget buster. Everything is great until those credit card bills come in in January!

That is why, in this episode of the podcast, as I did in Episode 45, I talk about some things you can do to be sure that you are celebrating the new year on a firm financial footing after having a wonderful holiday season.

In this episode you will learn lots of things, including:

  • How to make a gift list and check it twice
  • Using phone apps to save money
  • How to get stores to compete for your business
  • Leverage post-holiday sales
