Four Ways to Avoid Overspending This Holiday: Money Matters - Yahoo! Finance
Suze certainly annoys me sometimes, I just can't stand watching her show, however she does have some good advice and this article is quite pertinent for the holiday season. One tip that is not included here is that you should start your holiday shopping by determining how much you can spend, then make a list of those people you need to buy for, then apportion your budget accordingly. If you find you don't have enough money to buy for everyone you're going to need to rethink how much you are spending and save more money for the holidays next year.
BTW, though I can't stand watching Suze I do endorse her book "Nine Steps To Financial Freedom."
