Do you know that we’re on the verge of entering a minefield?  That’s right!  The holidays are just around the corner and there’s plenty to prepare for financially.  Are you traveling?  Are you having guests?  Who’s buying the food?  Are you saving for gifts?

Whoa!  That’s a lot to prepare for, so today we talked about avoiding the pitfalls of the holiday minefield so you can make it to the new year with all your financial limbs intact.

I also shared that those who save are being punished in our current economic environment, but that their disciplined financial habits provide plenty of other rewards.

Today’s Mentionables:

Money, Marriage & Holidays – Show from December 2009 interviewing Counselor April Miller on surviving the holidays.

Be A Big Loser – Show from January 2010 on setting effective goals for yourself rather than falling off the resolution bandwagon.
